Wednesday July 6th, 2022 with Carolyn Harris
This week, the vegan sociologist Dr. Roger Yates returns to the show to discuss vegan ethics and advocacy, the impact of banning fur farms, Earthling Ed's new book, and the future of the vegan movement.

This week, I am pleased to present my fourth interview with the sociologist and long-time vegan activist Dr. Roger Yates. I previously interviewed Roger on Episodes 19 and 21, Episode 29, and Episode 50 of my show. In this interview, Roger tells me about the approach that he takes to vegan advocacy, focusing on animal rights instead of animal welfare. He speaks about the implications of the recent fur farm ban in Ireland, gives his review of Earthling Ed’s new book about veganism (This is Vegan Propaganda (And Other Lies the Meat Industry Tells You)), and tells me about his experiences advocating for veganism on TikTok and on the Irish television program Eating with the Enemy. Finally, we discuss where the vegan movement is headed and how it might evolve in the future. It was a very interesting discussion!
