Katy Keiffer has a deep discussion about slaughterhouses and transparency with the author of "Every Twelve Seconds: Industrialized Slaughter and the Politics of Sight", Timothy Pachirat. How do people deal with the routine slaughter of animals? How can we successfully compute and understand the practice of animal processing on a human and emotional level? Tune in and get an insiders perspective on transparency, morality and the many implications of eating meat. Carnivores and vegetarians alike can learn something new from this show. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.

"I do think there is something significant to the act of taking life...What happens to the way we think about these practices if we begin to collapse some of the distances that shield us from having to confront the realities that they demand?"

"What I really want to get across is that there's absolutely something that happens in the act of taking another life. The current industrialized meat model allows people to eat meat without confronting that something. I believe that is deeply problematic."

--Author Timothy Pachirat on Straight, No Chaser
