November is World Vegan Month, so for this month's playlist we've put together a selection of episodes that offer philosophical reasons to change your diet! Josh and Ray recently talked to Peter Singer about how veganism (among other things) would make the world a better place. Less recently, John and Ken discussed the morality of what we eat more generally with Michael Pollan. They also explored the global food crisis with Tim Benton, legal rights for animals with Steven Wise, and the ethics of (animal) captivity with Lori Gruen.
