Description

Animal Voices is Toronto's animal advocacy and veg living radio show. Run solely by volunteers who love what they do, Animal Voices covers the local, national, global, and politically diverse campaigns, struggles and victories of the animal liberation movement. Tune in for interviews with a broad spectrum of activists and academics working toward the liberation of animals and uniting activists to fight all oppression.

Hosted and produced by Lauren Corman and Rob Moore, with technical supervision by Lamia Gibson, Animal Voices strives to shine a light on the issues around the taking of animal lives for human pleasure. In the words of past guest and AIDS and animal rights activist, Steven Simmons, "It's time for us to end this hierarchy of who has the right to live, who deserves not to suffer, who should be respected - that there's a limit to the amount of compassion that we can have for our fellow creatures."

Steven passed away in 1997 but his words remain the foundation for why Animal Voices exists today.

The Animal Voices podcast keeps listeners informed of the latest happenings in the world of animal rights advocacy. The show usually starts off with a brief reading of animal rights news, and then moves on to an interview with someone involved with the cause.

I like animals well enough and I am interested in seeing them receive fair and humane treatment, but I don't consider myself an activist. So some of these topics were a bit "out there" for me. For example, one show included a discussion with someone from an organization that is fighting to grant great apes some of the same basic legal protection currently reserved only for humans.

On the whole, though, I think this podcast has a great purpose, so I'm willing to listen again. If you feel strongly about animal rights, you will definitely want to subscribe to this one.

Listening, Deconstructing and Reconstructing: Celebrating black vegans and centering their stories


Thu, Mar 10, 2016


Too often we see the mainstream framing of black veganism or indigenous veganism as an assimilation into white veganism. Veganism is painted as a white person thing, when it isn’t and never has been. That is why creating spaces for the narratives of black vegans to grow and flourish is extremely important. I hope with this … Continue reading
