NBSV 099: Jess Peacock on the critical intersections of religion and veganism


Vegan actor Justina Adorno

How does veganism pertain to religion? There are blind spots intrinsic within religious communities, as veganism clearly pertains to the connection between suffering (animals, the planet, human health) and food choices.

Jess Peacock is a researcher, adjunct professor, United Church of Christ clergy, author, and part of the K.I. team. A vegan for 16 years, Jess explores the above (and more), as we discuss where- and how- these two schools of thought intersect.

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:

>> Jess' approach and strategy to discussing veganism when speaking with people in religious circles

>> Intrinsic blind spots within religious communities, pertaining to the connection between suffering (animals, the planet,

human health), and food choices


>> How religious people may envision collective liberation theology for animals, and what that process looks like
