-In the intro to the show, Jasmin and Mariann discuss the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests and the challenge of how to talk to vegans who don’t recognize the importance of social justice movements. Then we present a reading by Z. Zane McNeill from the new book Queer and Trans Voices: Achieving Liberation Through Consistent Anti-Oppression, an anthology they co-edited with Julia Feliz Brueck and which includes a contribution from Jasmin! We also continue our Supporting Vegan Businesses program by shouting out VeeCoco, 24 Karrots Cafe,  and Slutty Vegan in Atlanta.
-Mariann speaks with Kristina Mering, founder and president of the Estonian branch of Anima International, Nähtamatud Loomad. She discusses the work that she and her organization have done towards building an animal rights movement in Estonia and how the history of political and social change in the region has affected this movement, the ways that incremental welfare reforms can and should co-exist with abolitionist veganism, and how vital her academic development has been to her activism. (23:40)
-Mariann brings us the latest Rising Anxieties from the industrial animal ag world. (1:05:40)
