In this week's news Stevie and Luc discuss South Korea's announcement that it wishes to recommence whaling after a 26 year moratorium, the Animals Australia and Kmart rodeo fiasco, dogs on death row, and zoonotic diseases. They review a vegan cheese alternative recently available in Australia (it's amazing, but you'll have to listen to find out just how amazing). Also tune in for a pep-talk on the power of the individual in a consumerist society.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Team Earthling will be vacating the vegan capital of Australia taking nothing but suitcases and their lovely vegan behinds to north Queensland. Here they will continue to bring you Team Earthling goodness, but also to grow Team Earthling by bringing you more content in more formats. In order to bring our abolitionist voices to the fore, we are asking for the support of you, our dear listeners, to help grow Team Earthling to become a more powerful voice for animals. We are asking for donations, if you are able. Importantly, the podcast will remain free (we have no plans of limiting anyone's access). Please donate if you're able.
Team Earthling were also interviewed on 3CR's Freedom of Species. We will keep you posted as to when the podcast of that episode goes up.
Team Earthling is an independent Australian vegan podcast and blog dedicated to the idea that animals are not ours to use. We are entirely backed by our readers and listeners. If you'd like to support independent voices dedicated to ending the enslavement of non-human animals, please consider making a donation.
