Wednesday February 8th, 2023 with Carolyn Harris
On this week's show, the vegan author and environmental law expert Lee Hall speaks about vegan ethics, the history of the Vegan Society in the UK, and the connections between animal liberation and environmentalism.
This week, I am pleased to present my interview with the author and public speaker Lee Hall, who has been a vegan advocate since 1983. Lee is the author of On Their Own Terms: Animal Liberation for the 21st Century, the creator of the blog Vegan Place, and a writer for CounterPunch. Lee previously taught immigration and animal law at Rutgers University in New Jersey and now holds a Master of Laws in environmental law with a focus on climate change. In this interview, Lee speaks about vegan ethics, the history of the Vegan Society in the UK, the connections between animal liberation and environmentalism, ethical concerns with using violent imagery in our advocacy, and why domestication is inherently unfair. We also discuss the importance of integrity in our activism and the issue of whether chocolate is truly vegan-friendly.

I listen often. It's good. I'm learning lots. Understand & agree with maybe 60%. Thanks.
