About a year and a half ago, the pandemic was just getting into full swing in the United States and we were just starting to see the seeds of COVID conspiracy being sewn within vegans and plant based dieters. We did an episode speculating on whether or not vegans are more susceptible to falling for these conspiracies than the general population. Of…
 
As we’ve spent the last few weeks talking about some legislative measures that have the aim to greatly hinder the animal agriculture industry, we received an email asking what responsibility the vegan activists bear for potentially harming the mental health of farmers (specifically those exploiting animals). Whether it is targeted harassment campai…
 
This week we continue our discussion about legislative tactics that might help animals. Starting with a brief look at the Plant Based Treaty and then moving on to welfare measures such as Prop 2 and Prop 12. With Prop 12, which requires specific square footage for animals exploited for food, about to take effect in CA many farmers are feeling the r…
 
This week we are taking a look at a recent run of various globe-spanning legislative developments relating to legally establishing animal sentience. What do these moves actually mean for animals? It’s time to speculate wildly! A transcript of this episode is available here. Connect with us: Email TheBeardedVegans [at] gmail [dot] com Leave a voicem…
 
What’s up, beardos?! This week we bring back a classic interview that is quite possibly our most referenced. Of course, nothing can truly “cancel out” one’s personal vegan practice, but a lot of the potential practical good being done by a vegan population is consistently undermined by our taxes dollars. You know how every year we hear about less a…
 
This week we’ve got a surprise film review of Eating Our Way To Extinction, which releases on Sept 16th. Andy backed this film on Indiegogo back in 2017 and since then it has grown and gathered a number of celebrity endorsements and participants. Now narrated by Kate Winslet and featuring appearances from Tony Robbins and Richard Branson, among man…
 
This week we continue our “Is It Time To Retire ______” series by looking at three slogans/phrases that are often used within the animal rights movement and ask if they have outlived their accuracy or usefulness. Up first we assess “if slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian”, move on to “we are all animals” and then ultimatel…
 
It’s time to reach into the mailbag and attempt to answer a whole host of listener questions, including: With no sentient life to harm, is Mars the perfect vegan world? What’s the deal with the one anonymous listener that keeps sending us a physical piece of mail every ten weeks? Are there any animal rights causes that vegans shouldn’t advocate for…
 
This week we are taking a look at wild animal suffering. It’s a complex topic that brings up a lot of questions and mixed feelings. Is it an issue? If so, is it something that humans should attempt to intervene in? Do initiatives that end up helping predator animals (such as building bird boxes) actually create more harm than good? Are there ways w…
 
With vegans that are hesitant to take the COVID vaccine due to animal testing, we figured this would be a good time to explore our position on taking vaccines (as well as other medications). We’ll also discuss whether or not ethical veganism being a protected characteristic in the UK should exempt vegans from being required to get vaccinated in ord…
