Description (podcaster-provided):

We discuss the biggest questions: "what's real?", "who matters?" and "how to make a better world?" with scientists, celebrities, activists, writers and philosophers.
The Sentientism worldview is "evidence, reason and compassion for all sentient beings." It's a simple, yet radical, philosophy that's grounded in reality (naturalistic epistemology) and has compassion for all sentient beings (mostly human and non-human animals)? Naturalism & sentiocentrism combined.

Themes and summary (AI-generated based on podcaster-provided show and episode descriptions):

➤ Evidence-based thinking • Ethics • Philosophy • Animal rights • Naturalism • Sentience • AI • Activism • Interviews with academics, authors, and activists

This podcast, Sentientism, engages with profound philosophical questions and strives to address them through conversations with scientists, celebrities, activists, writers, and philosophers. The central themes revolve around understanding reality, identifying who or what matters morally, and exploring ways to improve the world. The show is underpinned by the Sentientism worldview—founded on the principles of evidence, reason, and compassion for all sentient beings, encompassing both human and non-human animals.

Episodes frequently delve into topics related to animal ethics, activism, and effective altruism. Many guests are prominent figures in the fields of philosophy, law, cognitive science, and environmentalism. Discussions with philosophers often touch on the moral status of animals, the implications of artificial intelligence, and the challenges of understanding consciousness. Interviews with activists and leaders of various movements highlight their approaches to animal protection, veganism, and broader social justice causes.

Several episodes explore the intersections between human and animal welfare, discussing issues such as farmed animal advocacy, legal rights for animals, and the ethical considerations in food systems. The podcast also features dialogues about critical topics like climate change, species extinction, and the psychological aspects of activism and belief systems.

Another recurring theme is the examination of the consistency and application of moral principles across different contexts. Sentientism's naturalistic and sentiocentric outlook is illustrated through varied discussions, aiming to bridge academic insights with practical activism. Whether addressing the ethical implications of technological advancements or the personal and societal changes necessary to foster compassion, this podcast offers nuanced explorations of how to support sentience across species.
