This time, the ARZone team are joined by artist, designer, writer, and blogger, Ruby Roth. Vegan since 2003, Ruby is the author of two children’s books about human relations with other animals, “That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals,” published in 2009, and her new book, “Vegan is Love: Having Heart and Taking Action.”

In this podcast, we discuss with Ruby the links between health veganism and ethical veganism, the socialisation of children, social movements and the internet, feminism and animal rights, vegetarianism and veganism, and much more.

Of course, even though Ronnie Lee could not make it this time, we made sure we remembered to ask "The Ronnie Question"!
