This week Jasmin interviews C Lou Hamilton about her book Veganism, Sex and Politics: Tales of Danger and Pleasure, the ways that veganism and sex are connected, the similarities between sexual exploitation of animals and of humans, and what The Sexual Politics of Meat by Carol Adams gets wrong.
C Lou Hamilton is a feminist writer with a passion for fake fur, animals real and imaginary, and assorted things queer and vegan. She lives in London. Find her on Twitter @clouhamilton1 or on Instagram @veganismsexandpolitics.
In the intro to the show, Jasmin has a bit of a bird feeder problem, Mariann wants to move somewhere populated only by vegan dogs, and Jasmin gets interviewed for Tenderly about body positivity. Later in the episode, Mariann brings us Rising Anxieties!
