S2 E7: Earthling Ed

Ed Winters is a vegan educator, best-selling author, public speaker and content creator, widely known for his viral debates, speeches, and video essays.

In this episode, Issy sits down with Ed to discuss his new book How to Argue With a Meat Eater (And Win Every Time), his nine-year vegan journey, how his mindset shifted from thinking vegans were humourless and attention seekers, to being one of the leading voices in the movement.

In this conversation Issy and Ed discuss topics, such as:

  • Ed’s childhood and how university changed his mindset
  • Specism
  • Rupert the Hamster, his companion animal and his love of broccoli
  • Expression, vulnerability in having your views questioned
  • Culture wars and pseudo science
  • Critical thinking
