#56: 14 Years of Animal Law – a Conversation with Siobhan O’Sullivan

In this episode, we welcome Peter back to the co-host chair after some time off. Peter also brings listeners as a special interview with Australia-based Siobhan O’Sullivan, host of the Knowing Animals podcast. Peter and Siobhan discuss how animal law and animal studies have grown in the last decade and a half, and the iRoar Podcast Network.

There’s lots in the news, but not all of it is good. In the midst of a pandemic, Ontario is reviving Bill 156, dangerous ag gag legislation that would conceal animal cruelty, unsafe work conditions, and biosecurity hazards on farms.

On a more optimistic note, the Hot Docs festival on CBC premiered two stunning animal-related films: Meat the Future by Liz Marshall chronicles the rise of slaughter-free meat, made from real animal cells; and The Walrus and the Whistleblower by Nathalie Bibeau follows former Marineland trainer-turned-whistleblower Phil Demers, and his fight to expose animal cruelty inside the infamous aquarium. We strongly recommend checking them out!

Peter & Camille also discuss a new ruling from Pakistan ordering the release of an elephant named Kaavan from appalling conditions at a zoo, and concluding that animals are capable of having legal rights. Plus, there’s a stunning op-ed by Jonathan Safran-Foer in the New York Times arguing that The End of Meat Is Here.

Our hero is Haley Maclean, a Schulich law student who paints portraits to help pets find homes, and our zero is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is busy urging people to eat Canadian cheese and seafood. Where’s the love for (cruelty-free) Canadian lentils?
