Episode notes

For this podcast, we brought together a panel of experts to discuss the consequences of lab grown meat and dairy. Proponents emphasise the environmental and animal welfare potential of these technologies, but there are concerns about ownership and distribution of economic benefits, as well as the serious potential impact on the farming community. The panel includes Dr Alexandra Sexton, Leverhulme research fellow at University of Sheffield, Jamie Arbib, co-founder of RethinkX and Alice Ritchie, climate change lead, Country Land and Business Association (CLA) and was chaired by Anna Turns, environmental journalist.
