Wednesday April 6th, 2022 with Carolyn Harris
In this week's re-broadcast, Professor Carlo Alvaro responds to the cliché that it’s okay to eat “everything in moderation” and discusses where raw vegans get calcium and why eating animal products constitutes a form of self-deception.

This week we'll be listening to a re-broadcast of Part One of my second interview with the vegan philosopher and virtue ethicist, Dr. Carlo Alvaro. Carlo is an Associate Professor of philosophy at CUNY New York City College of Technology. He is the author of Ethical Veganism, Virtue Ethics, and the Great Soul, published in 2019, as well as Raw Veganism: The Philosophy of The Human Diet, which was published in 2020. His new book about raw veganism, The Book of Raw, will be published by Lantern Publishing & Media in 2022. We will have time to hear only a portion of this discussion today. In the longer online version of the interview, Carlo tells me about the philosophy and science behind raw veganism, and he describes his involvement in an academic debate on whether parents should raise their children on a vegan diet. On the airwaves today, we’ll hear Carlo responding to the cliché that it’s okay to eat “everything in moderation”. We also discuss where raw vegans get calcium, why eating animal products constitutes a form of self-deception, and what we can expect to find in his upcoming book.
