This week's podcast is supported by our friends over at Nuzest. You can get 20% off their amazing vegan protein by visiting nuzest.us/pbn20! Joining me today on the podcast is a truly fascinating individual -scientist, environmentalist, and sustainability expert Matthew Shibman, who specialises in the climate and ecological crisis and focuses on projects for the future life on Earth. As a science educator, he aims to ignite curiosity and empower people to drive positive change and combat environmental destruction. In addition to sharing his teachings online where his videos have over 25 million views, Matthew has spoken for TEDxLondon and UN Ops and has delivered keynotes from Wildlife Trusts and the British-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce. Matthew’s impressive portfolio of work centered around climate change includes numerous campaigns, supported by the likes of Paul McCartney, the University of Cambridge, Friends of The Earth and the Eden Project. In 2019, his campaign group, Planet A, organised for 1,000 trees to arrive outside the UK parliament. The action saw over 400 MPs collect trees, and led to the UK’s tree planting plans multiplying by a factor of 100. A notable recent highlight of Matthew's career is the launch of AimHi Earth -a platform curating transformative learning experiences for organisations and people. AimHi educates young people in particular on climate change and has the “mission to activate a billion nature-first thinkers to build the future we all deserve”. Matthew co-founded the platform alongside school governor Henry Waite during the pandemic. Since then they’ve run sessions for the House of Lords and thousands of schools and big corporations, reaching people of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds.

This week's podcast is supported by our friends over at Nuzest. You can get 20% off their amazing vegan protein by visiting nuzest.us/pbn20! --- I am so excited to be joined today by none other than Ed Winters (aka Earthling Ed). Ed is a vegan educator who’s content boasts over 200 million views, he has also hosted numerous viral speeches, debates, and videos engaging in dialogue with non-vegans and skeptics. Ed has delivered speeches at numerous schools, universities, and major companies including Google, he has engaging audiences all around the world. As an activist, vegan educator and more recently a published author, he is a firm advocate for animal rights and the vegan lifestyle. Ed’s advocacy centres around compassion, empathy, and open communication. In 2016, he founded a grassroots animal rights organisation called Surge. Two years later he launched Unity Diner - a non-profit vegan restaurant in London, all the proceeds from which go directly to helping animals. The culmination of that work is his longtime passion project Surge Sanctuary, which houses rescued animals on a vast 18 acre property. Most recently, Ed has published his first book This is Vegan Propaganda (And Other Lies the Meat Industry Tells You), which presents an indisputable case for veganism. This is a book that is as much for non-vegans as it is for those who already lead a vegan lifestyle, empowering them to talk more confidently about veganism with the non-vegans in their life. The book explores the effects of animal farming across the globe and how they are rooted in a number of factors that have created our current system. I am delighted to welcome Ed and find out more about the inspiration behind the book and everything else that he has been up to with his advocacy work recently.

"We bought this pandemic on ourselves" | Jane Goodall - Episode 76
00:33:52
Today we are delighted to welcome the legendary Dame Jane Goodall. A leading ethologist, conservationist, anthropologist and activist, Jane Goodall has been a beacon for the scientific and conservation community for decades. Her groundbreaking research and observations on chimpanzee behaviour at the Gombe National Park in Tanzania began as early as the 1960s. In 1977, she established the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), which carries on the Gombe research while also advocating for the protection of their natural habitats and spearheading innovative, community-centered conservation programs in Africa. Jane Goodall’s activist work extends into raising awareness for the lives and wellbeing of all animals. She has campaigned for the ethical treatment of animals and has spoken against cruel and inhumane practices and medical testing on animals. Jane Goodall’s latest book The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times, co-authored with bestselling author of The Book of Joy Douglas Abrams, was published at the end of last year. With a lifetime’s worth of research and stories about our relationship to nature, the authors delve into the complex relationship that humankind has with the planet we inhabit. The book highlights the ways in which we can redefine that relationship by discovering and embracing hope in the face of the urgent climate crisis. In 2021, she also was awarded the Templeton Prize, and she currently continues to write and teach on conservation issues. We are beyond thrilled to have sat down with Jane Goodall for this enlightening conversation, discussing animal suffering, climate change, and the most powerful asset in our toolkit – hope.

Veganism, Vaccines & Misinformation with Dr. Mauricio Gonzalez Episode 71

This week's supporter is a Swiss vegan meat brand Planted: Please use their webshop discount code PBN20 (valid for 1st time use for customers, currently end-date set for end of January 22). https://www.eatPlanted.com With us today is leading plant-based physician Dr. Mauricio Gonzalez, CEO Human Restoration Program and Founder of VeggiePower Summit – the largest medical seminar in Latin America that educates people about the science of plant-based nutrition. Originally from Mexico, Mauricio’s journey began first with studying nutrition before deciding to continue onto a medical degree in the US, where he is currently a resident at the Metropolitan hospital in New York. During his studies, he came to realize how little attention is paid to nutrition as part of a more holistic view on health and wellness, which pushed him to switch to a plant-based diet himself and fill the gap he identified between nutrition and medicine. Through his platform Mauricio teaches others how to adopt a healthy plant-based diet and change their lives for the better. As the founder of the first ever plant-based medical immersion program in Latin America, he educates other people including physicians and nutritionists on the health benefits of having a vegan diet and the science behind it. His YouTube channel also reaches thousands of people, inspiring people in Latin American countries and all around the world to make a positive change in their lives. The simple idea of food as medicine is the guiding principle of what Mauricio teaches, making the plant-based lifestyle a question of personal health and wellbeing.

She is an American social psychologist and author, primarily notable for coining the term carnism. At the age of 23, while a student at Harvard, Melanie contracted a food-borne disease from a tainted hamburger and was hospitalised. This led her to become a vegetarian, before eventually transitioning to veganism. Melanie introduced the term Carnism in a 2001 article published in Satya - an American monthly magazine which covered animal rights and social justice issues. The concept was revisited by her 2009 book Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows. Celebrities such as the musician Moby have praised Melanie, saying that her work has the potential to revolutionise how we think.

01:12:12
Hi Plant friends and welcome to another episode of the PBN Podcast. This week we meet Joanne Molinaro, also known as The Korean Vegan. Joanne is a Korean American, born in Chicago, Illinois. When you consider her tasks and accomplishments, you wonder how Joanne manages to incorporate all of her work and play into a 24-hour period. She works at a large law firm, runs 30-40 miles a week, and creates a blog that has over 100,000 followers. On top of that, she’s managed to write her first book, which she hopes will be released by Autumn 2021. Joanne also writes poetry and prose, with her writing appearing in Side B Magazine, Cha: An Asian Literary Journal, and The Mashup Americans. Joanne started her blog, The Korean Vegan, in 2016, after switching to a plant-based diet. In July 2020, she started her TikTok platform, mostly as a coping mechanism for the isolation caused by the global pandemic.  Each of the simple recipe videos she shared included an accompanying family story, all less than 60 seconds. She's shared stories of her mother's immigration to America, her grandmother's escape from North Korea, interracial dating, and more. In addition to her other work, Joanne has given cooking demonstrations, participated in fundraising events for North Korean refugees, and was invited to be the keynote guest speaker for the Korean Women’s International Network 2018 Conference.

Exclusive Seaspiracy Documentary Director Interview with Ali & Lucy Tabrizi / Episode 60
00:55:49
Hi Plant Friends, and welcome to a very special episode. Today's show is hosted by PBN Founder Klaus Mitchell. Husband and wife Ali and Lucy Tabrizi are the filmmakers behind the Netflix documentary Seaspiracy - which uncovers the horrors of modern industrial fishing. The film features human impacts on marine life such as plastic marine debris, ghost nets and overfishing around the world. The documentary was one of the top ten most-watched films on Netflix in several countries on the week of its release and generated significant traction on social media. According to the United Nations FAO around 87 percent of the world’s fish populations are ‘fully fished’ or ‘overfished’. Nearly a third of edible fish populations have declined by 90 percent. That same study says that if biodiversity continues to decline, the marine environment will not be able to sustain our way of life. Indeed it may not be able to sustain our lives at all. The global fishing industry has more than doubled in capacity since 1950. It’s now so huge it can’t help but destroy our oceans. What Ali and Lucy discovered whilst making Seaspiracy was truly shocking: Fishing has wiped out 90 percent of the world’s large fish. More than 300,000 dolphins, whales and porpoises are killed by fishing operations every year. More than $35 billion is paid in subsidies to industrial fishing every year. Fishing kills 30,000 sharks EVERY HOUR. Ali and Lucy sat down with Klaus Mitchell from Plant Based News to talk about some of the questions they’ve faced, some of the criticisms, and to go through some behind-the-scenes snippets from the Seaspiracy documentary. Since its release in March 2021, Seaspiracy has garnered many reviews worldwide. It soon climbed up the ranks on Netflix in over 30 countries. During our exclusive interview for Plant Based News, Klaus Mitchell asked Ali and Lucy what proportion of the feedback they thought - in terms of the reception of the documentary - has been positive and negative.

"How To Be a Fabulous Vegan" Interview /w Jasmin Singer Episode 59
01:03:11
Hi Plant Friends and welcome to another episode of the PBN Podcast. I am your host Robbie Lockie. On this weeks episode we meet the bubbly and colourful vegan Jasmin Singer. At the age of twenty-four, Jasmin Singer turned to veganism after watching a film about factory farming. Learning about the horrors of the dairy and egg production led her to incorporate animal rights into her LGBTQ+ and feminist activism. Jasmin then began volunteering at PETA's headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, and began steering her career toward animal rights activism. As well as being a leading expert, Jasmin Singer is now a hugely visible presence within the vegan community. She is a coveted speaker on topics including radical body positivity, personal narrative as a means of social justice, and how to change the world for animals. She is also the author of The VegNews Guide to Being a Fabulous Vegan and Always Too Much and Never Enough: A Memoir. Along with her co-host Mariann Sullivan, Jasmin and her team continue to “change the world for animals” on the long-running, award-winning podcast, Our Hen House. I was fortunate to feature on one of their episodes, I will link it down in the show notes. Jasmin’s incredible contribution to animal rights does not stop there. She is the former Senior Editor for VegNews Magazine and the longtime love columnist and celebrity interviewer. In 2020, Jasmin had the enviable job of interviewing actor Joaquin Phoenix, who had used his prominence to not only effectively veganize the menu at the Academy Awards, but also treat his acceptance speech as a way of sharing his concerns for animal rights issues. You may well have seen Jasmin appearing in various documentaries such as The Ghosts In Our Machine and Vegucated. She has also contributed to many anthologies such as Running Eating Thinking; Defiant Daughters; Voices for Animal Liberation; Queer & Trans Voices; and Circles of Compassion. As an actor, Jasmin starred in the film The Bra Mitzvah and has appeared in television commercials. She holds a BFA in Acting from Pace University, and is a certified holistic health counsellor. Jasmin is a long-time activist across many realms, including animal activism, LGBTQ activism, and antiracism.

Brett Cobley is Epivegan. What first started as a bit of a hobby has now blossomed into a full-time gig. Brett recently launched his debut vegan cookbook "What Vegans Eat".

Brett has a keen passion for philosophy and the nature of life, we could have probably talked for another hour on the topic of reality and what the hell we are all doing here but that might happen in episode 2. Brett is an exceptionally articulate young man who has a wide knowledge of life, which is surprising as he isn't even 30 yet. He is wise beyond his years! I am constantly amazed at how mature people under 30 are these days, I think maybe since I am almost 40 now that is just an age thing! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this weeks episode. Please comment, like and share! Robbie!

Low Impact Movement, Public Speaker & Sustainability Advocate | Interview with Immy Lucas Episode 20
00:40:09
Please meet Imogen (Immy) Lucas a.ka Sustainably Vegan. She is the founder of the Low Impact Movement in February 2018 because she felt tired of feeling guilty for not being 100% waste free. Immy could feel the frustrations within her community and began to realise how excluded some people felt. Her activism has always been a little softer than others but Lucas truly believes this approach has allowed her work to be more accessible to those wishing to engage with this lifestyle. Immy wanted more from the movements she was a part of and wondered why there wasn’t one that combined all the values we hold dear. Being plant based, low waste, minimalist and ethical, Immy wanted a movement that encompassed all of those values and merged them into one. This was the very reason she began social media activism in the first place. Through the Low Impact Movement, Immy has been able to truly engage with likeminded people and build a community that cares about one another. This is the most fulfilling job I have ever had, and no doubt will ever have. Our podcast goes into a bit of detail about her life, how she became vegan, the low impact movement, zero waste, and much more. This is the program we talked about in the discussion LOOP https://www.unilever.com/news/news-and-features/Feature-article/2019/we-are-introducing-reusable-refillable-packaging-to-help-cut-waste.html Presented by Robbie Lockie | Produced & Edited by Gareth Cobb Follow and the growth of the Low Impact Movement below https://lowimpactmovement.org http://instagram.com/lowimpactmovement https://www.instagram.com/sustainably_vegan REVIEW/SHARE: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you enjoyed the episode and have a spare 1-2 minutes please leave a review on iTunes so the Plant Based News podcast ranks higher and becomes more discoverable for other listeners.

Vegan Activist & Public Speaker. Interview with Joey Carbstrong | Episode 18
01:16:28
This week is the Australian born animal rights activist Joey Carbstrong. Joey and I discussed in great detail his life as a gang member, the moment he turned his life around. We also touched on topics such as the use of words like "murder, rape and Holocaust' when used in the context of animals and much more. Despite Joey's background, he says his style of activism is non-confrontational and places an emphasis on being polite and respectful. The campaigner feels strongly about what he sees as the responsibility of all vegans to be active participants in furthering the movement. “When you become a vegan, you’re realising you’ve been causing harm to innocent beings and you’ve tried your best as far as practical to stop causing harm. But that is a neutral position; it doesn’t mean you’re doing something fantastic, it just means you’ve stopped doing something horrific or contributing to something that’s horrific.

Ingrid Newkirk PETA's founder on euthanasia, Sea World & vegan activism
00:20:55
We visited the headquarters of PETA USA to meet it's founder and tour de force, Ingrid Newkirk. We spoke about euthanasia, Sea World, veganism, the history of PETA and more. Since it was founded, PETA has exposed horrific animal abuse in laboratories, leading to many firsts, including canceled funding, closed facilities, seizure of animals, and charges filed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. PETA has also closed the largest horse-killing operation in North America, convinced dozens of major designers and hundreds of companies to stop using fur, ended all car-crash tests on animals, cleaned up wretched animal pounds, helped schools switch to alternatives to dissection, and provided millions of people with information on vegetarianism, companion animal care, and countless other issues. PETA's style of activism is often challenged, but there is no doubt PETA has led the way for real changes in animal rights.
