I believe that shifting the way we talk about, think about, and behave towards other animals will impact them positively in the long term. But I also believe that as people who care about animals, we need to be politically engaged, because it’s not enough to change hearts and minds; we also have to change laws in order to protect animals from violence and exploitation. If you're looking to become empowered and emboldened to be a voice for animals, this is the episode for you.

Thank you for your support. Supporters receive transcripts of episodes.

Research has found that the way we name animals is intimately tied to our ability to eat them. Listen to this excerpt, then head over to Animalogy for the full episode. This topic is relevant for Food for Thought listeners, so I thought I'd put it on your radar. 

Subscribe to Animalogy Podcast wherever you listen to podcasts. Thank you!

Because this episode from Animalogy Podcast is so relevant to what we discuss on Food for Thought Podcast, I'm sharing an excerpt with you. Listen to the full episode over at Animalogy Podcast in which I talk to my friend, colleague, and fellow activist Carol J. Adams about:

  • where the animals go when we eat meat
  • how the word meat has changed over the centuries
  • the effect of “zero plurals” (listen for what the heck that means)
  • the power of words to objectify, diminish, and dismember an individual

Thank you for listening to and supporting this work.

For information on what you need to do before visiting these countries, check out the Food for Thought episode called Planning and Preparing a Trip to Africa. But for what do to once you get there and how to make the most of it, sit back, and enjoy the journey. 

Supporters of Food for Thought receive the itinerary and specific details of the trip.

SPECIAL EPISODE -- The Semantics of Meat (with Paul Shapiro)

Easing you into the new ANIMALOGY podcast, enjoy this SPECIAL episode, and be sure to subscribe to ANIMALOGY today on iTunes or wherever you listen to podcasts. 

Semantics play a significant role in shaping public perception about animals and animal welfare. The meat, dairy, and egg industries go to great lengths to remove harsh terminology and replace it with euphemisms that conceal the truth and sanitize violence. In today’s episode, I talk to someone who knows this all too well: Paul Shapiro, Vice President of Policy at The Humane Society of the United States. Join us as we discuss euphemisms and doublespeak used by animal agriculture and the best terms for plant-based and cultured meat. 

Please subscribe to Animalogy on iTunes and Stitcher, download the episodes, and leave a review. Thank you for helping change the way we talk — and think — about animals.

11-Year Anniversary: Another Amazing Love Fest!

Help celebrate the ELEVEN-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the Food for Thought podcast by sitting back and taking in the love letters I’ve received from listeners and supporters this past year. The stories are as diverse as the listeners and reflect varied ages and backgrounds, but they all share common threads of hope, transformation, and compassion. I

hope you are as moved by the letters as I am humbled by them. If you ever once thought that “people don’t change,” then you’re in for quite a treat. And grab some tea or a glass of wine. 

Thank you for all your support and love these last 11 years!

SPECIAL EPISODE — Eating Crow? Trying Eating Humble Pie Instead.

Easing you into the new podcast, enjoy this episode of ANIMALOGY, and be sure to subscribe to ANIMALOGY today on iTunes or wherever you listen to podcasts. 

If you’ve made a serious faux pas and need to acknowledge it with humility, you might be said to be “eating crow” or “eating humble pie,” both phrases of which involve animals — or do they? In this episode, I uncover the dirty little secret underneath the pastry dough in “to eat humble pie” but demonstrate why you still want to eat humble pie (or dirt) instead of crows. 

Please subscribe to Animalogy on iTunes and Stitcher, download the episodes, and leave a review. Thank you for helping change the way we talk — and think — about animals.

SPECIAL EPISODE — Coccyx: Please Don't Sit on the Cuckoo

Easing you into the new podcast, enjoy this episode from ANIMALOGY, and be sure to subscribe to ANIMALOGY today! Coccyx is a small triangle-shaped bone at the base of the spinal column in humans and other apes, such as gibbons, orangutans, gorillas, and chimpanzees. Representing a vestigial tail and most commonly called the tailbone, coccyx was the name given to this part of our anatomy by ancient Greek physician Galen because of its resemblance to an animal, making the word an "animalogy." Can you guess the etymology? All is revealed in this episode of Animalogy, a podcast about language and the animal-related words and expressions we use every day.

SPECIAL EPISODE - Inauguration: On a Wing and a Prayer

Easing you into the new Animalogy Podcast, please enjoy this SPECIAL episode; in exchange, please listen and subscribe to Animalogy Podcast! As Inauguration Day approaches, not everyone is talking about the inauguration of the next U.S. president; some are talking about the animals hidden within the word itself.
