Episode 2227: How To Love Animals With Henry Mance; How To Lose To Wolves With Man United
Do we love animals? Many of us feel like we do. Do we also like eating them? For most of us, the answer is still yes. Do we feel good about the gigantic industrial systems of exploitation and extermination we have created to supply us with meat, dairy, eggs and fish? Generally we prefer not to think about it, or the implications of trying to run such a system indefinitely.
Today we’re talking to Henry Mance about the relationship between human beings and animals. Henry is the chief features writer at the Financial Times and the author of How To Love Animals: In A Human Shaped World.
no generation has loved animals more than us. no generation has kept more of them in factory farms, or pushed more of them towards extinction.
can we find a better way?
