Season 1, Episode, 13. In this episode, we hear from Jamie. Jamie advocates for human and nonhuman animal rights using the philosophy of sentientism as an ethical grounding. Sentientism uses evidence and reason to inform our moral decision making. Jamie explains how anti-speciesism and sentientism can be combined, but how this can also be problematic for some anti-speciesist activists. He also digs deeper into some of the questions posted by sentientism, in relation to veganism, environmentalism and artificial intelligence.
