CBC Radio show “Q” had a “should we eat meat” debate today with Anthony Bourdain and Jonathan Safran Foer.

You can listen to it HERE.

Like most conversations between a hard-headed meat eater and a soft-hearted vegetarian … the conversation leads nowhere but it’s exciting that we’re having the conversation on national radio!! 🙂

Did you listen? What did you think?

    Wow, this should have been a slam dunk for the newest Veg celebrity but he totally took it like a wet noodle. Anthony Bordain’s arguments are some of the weakest arguments I’ve ever heard for eating meat and he could have easily been destroyed by the majority of the veg community. I think Jonathan Safran Foer paid too much attention to Bordain’s first argument about not wanting to offend people.
    Although Foer is a new veg, so maybe he hasn’t had the time to really build up his anti meat argument repertoir yet. I bet if this piece gets redone in five or so years it will be a lot different.
    I hope that he doesn’t end up doing a lot of this soft advocacy and turn some fence sitters the wrong way.

    BBQ and Beer, hahahahahahaha.

    Ok, that was maybe a bit harsh, he didn’t do a horrible job, but I think he could have been a lot more assertive on a bunch of points.

    I 100% agree that it’s pretty great that this was on a national radio program.

    I agree with Jay-Lo. The argument for eating meat was pathetic; in part he defended eating meat because it helped people to better communicate with one another? If we’re not advanced enough to have the ability to communicate without torturing and eating animals, I’m worried? And definitely, the vegetarian’s argument was sooo weak. I actually turned it off because I found it too irritating. I just kept thinking about those quasi-veggies out there, or people trying to make a decision..or worse those who like to insult our choice to be vegan, and what they’d be thinking while listening.
