This week on rabble radio, Libby Davies sits down with Liz Marshall, the writer, director, and producer of the recently internationally released documentary, Meat the Future.

“Imagine a world where real meat is produced sustainably without the need to breed, raise and slaughter animals. This is no longer science fiction, it’s now within reach.” –

Meat the Future tells the story of Dr. Uma Valeti, the co-founder and CEO of Upside Foods, the leading start-up of the cultivated – or “clean” as it’s sometimes called – meat revolution.

Marshall sits down with Davies to talk about the film and the powerful impact clean meat can have on agriculture and the climate emergency.

Marshall last joined rabble radio to talk with Victoria Fenner about the documentary during our ‘Climate hope in the time of pandemic’ series. At that point, the film had just been released. Now, with a global audience, Marshall explains the response the film has received from policy makers and filmgoers alike.
