The newest episode of the TV show Rick & Morty may be of interest to EAs interested in the ethics of food, veganism, factory farming, clean meat, & moral dilemmas.

'Rick & Morty' is a popular American cartoon with science fiction themes. The latest episode (Season 7, Episode 4, 'That's Amorte', released Nov 5, 2023) directly addresses several moral issues in meat consumption. It starts off innocently enough with a family spaghetti dinner. I don't want to give any spoilers; I just highly recommend it.

The Rick & Morty episodes are short enough (about 22 minutes) that they could easily be used to spark discussions in local EA meetup groups, EA classes, or EA conferences.

Thanks for this post! Without it, I might not have learned that Rick & Morty is back on air. :)

Here is the plot, for anyone curious

I also thought this was pretty great. I kind of wish they had a proper philosophical advisor for some of it, but give them points for creativity.
