ARZone Podcast 7. General Orders.

ARZone's special guest for this episode is Ronnie "The General" Lee, longtime British animal protectionist, co-founder of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), and ethical vegan since 1971.

Ronnie provides ARZone Podcast listeners with an action-packed trip down memory lane as well as a powerful thought-provoking vision for a radical vegan future in which humanity returns to inhabiting the Earth rather than "occupying" the globe as a "dominating, tyrannical, force."

See what you think of Ronnie's ideas about human supremacy, arson, single-issue campaigning, scrapping the private car and mechanised farming, the world population, vegan festivals, violence, and a dog who is thin and brown.

The ARZone team for this podcast was Carolyn Bailey, Barbara DeGrande, Tim Gier and Roger Yates.

ARZone Podcast 6. Intervention, Interaction, or Non-Interference.

This time the ARZone team explore the difficult and complex issue about whether human beings should interfere in the lives of other animals - indeed, should we, as philosopher David Pearce suggests, micro-manage every part of the planet in the name of compassion and in order to prevent pain anywhere and everywhere?

ARZone Podcast 5. Dr. Will Tuttle.

This is our first podcast with a former ARZone "chat" guest. We are very pleased to have Dr. Will Tuttle, author of The World Peace Diet, as our first podcast interviewee.

Dr. Tuttle talks about his appearance at the 2011 Vegetarian Summer Fest in the USA (yes, we do ask him why it is not known as the Vegan Summer Fest), and issues raised in his book The World Peace Diet, including a wonderful story of his encounter with a free-living elk.

ARZone thanks Dr. Will Tuttle for giving us his time during his busy schedule.

ARZone Podcast 4: Bearing Silent Witness

In this podcast, the ARZone team provide a tour around the Animal Rights Zone (ARZone) website, explaining it uses and features and then they discuss an ARZone guest answer by Animal Equality's Jose Valle about a particular style of demonstration made popular in Spain when animal advocates quietly and respectfully hold the dead bodies of the nonhuman animals they have found on Spanish farms, making the usually invisible visible again.
