The video version of our conversation is here on YouTube.

In these Sentientist Conversations (subscribe!), we talk about the two most important questions: “what’s real?” & “what matters?”. Sentientism is “evidence, commitment & compassion for all sentient beings.”

We discuss:

  • Jasmin’s activist journey & roles (& books)

  • Gaslighting re: animal agriculture

  • 1980’s milk & meat marketing

  • Atheism, naturalism, comparative religion

  • Compassion in religion, but also serious ethical problems

  • Growing up as a reform Jew, celebrating Christmas & Hannukah

  • The mental gymnastics more “moderate” religions (like reform Judaism) have to do to move away from the harmful ethics at the core of many religions

  • Humanism’s focus on the human species

  • Do kids start out naturalistic and then get taught fabrications?

  • And much more...
