Today's guest is Dr Rachel Robison-Green, an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. She works in metaethics, ethics, and epistemology. Rachel does lots of really interesting work challenging stereotypes about what philosophers do and who philosophy is for. For example, she has edited or co-edited no fewer than twelve books in the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series, including American Horror Story and Philosophy. Today, however, we talk about cultivated meat, because Rachel is the author of Edibility and In Vitro Meat: Ethical Considerations, which was released in 2023 by Lexington Books.
