This audio clip comes from the BBC Radio 4 programme, The New Quiz. It's one of my favourite programmes on the radio. However, due to the fact that society is drenched in speciesist values, cultural speciesism is always likely to raise its ugly head at any given time. This is what happened during the 24th September 2021 programme.
Now, I know from experience that vegans, in the main, have an excellent sense of humour and, yes, The News Quiz is a comedy take on the week's news, so we shouldn't be too critical.
However, the first voice you'll hear in the clip below belongs to Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell who obviously hasn't fully internalised the mythical nonsense from the Irish farming industry that "Ireland has the best animal welfare in the world" (yawn). He doesn't seem to know why other animals in slaughterhouses are stunned and doesn't understand the difference between stunning and killing - whereas the Irish welfarist farmers would emphasise how "efficient" their stunning processes are, rendering slaughtered other animals senseless when their throats are cut open.
The other voice is that of Ria Lina.
