On this show we analyse mainstream media reporting on plant-based meats and discuss the benefits of eating plant-based rather than animal-based meats, for animals and the environment.
The article we discuss for most of the show is ‘Plant-based meat sales are soaring, but experts warn it may not be better for you or the environment’ by Cara Waters in The Sydney Morning Herald: https://amp.smh.com.au/business/companies/plant-based-meat-sales-are-soaring-but-experts-warn-it-may-not-be-better-for-you-or-the-environment-20210317-p57bi2.html
We also discuss the article ‘Taste alone won't persuade Americans to swap out beef for plant-based burgers’ by Anna Mattila in The Conversation: https://theconversation.com/amp/taste-alone-wont-persuade-americans-to-swap-out-beef-for-plant-based-burgers-158682
The article ‘The Civilised Burger: Meat Alternatives as a Conversion Aid and Social Instrument for Australian Vegetarians and Vegans’ by Nath and Prideaux in the Australian Humanities Review is briefly touched on: http://www.australianhumanitiesreview.org/archive/Issue-November2011/nath%26prideaux.html
