Hosts Camille and Peter sit down for a fascinating interview with professor Kendra Coulter of Brock University. The wide-ranging discussion covers her important empirical research on animal law enforcement models, and her recent op ed on why our obsession with Tiger King says a lot about how disrespecting animals led to the coronavirus pandemic in the first place. Check out Kendra’s study on Manitoba’s law enforcement model, co-authored with Brittany Campbell.
Peter and Camille also discuss what’s been in the news, including a recent high-profile piece in the New York Times arguing that our abuse of animals is directly responsible for the coronavirus and other health issues, and a well-researched article about how the pandemic is affecting consumption and supply of animal meat, dairy, and fishes.
This episode’s (tepid) hero is China, for signalling a move toward ending cat and dog meat consumption, and the zero is a German zoo, for planning to feed some animals to other zoo inmates, should revenues decline due to the lockdown.
