Our Podcast

The Animal Free Labcast, hosted by our amazing CEO Carla, is a frank, lively exchange of ideas and experiences with leading scientists, policy makers and animal protection ambassadors – all of whom are part of the animal free innovation revolution.

Our guests cut through the noise and complexities to break down the urgent need to accelerate human relevant science and end the medical emergency – which is in large part caused by the continued reliance on animals as models for human disease research.

New episodes out every fortnight starting on June 29 2022. Available wherever you get your podcasts, or click one of the icons below.



Episode 1 & 2 – Dr Jarrod Bailey

In these episodes Dr Jarrod Bailey, Animal Free Research UK’s Science Director, highlights the issues surrounding the use of animals in medical research and drug testing – and makes a plea for the status quo to be broken.

He dismantles the arguments often made by those who advocate animal use, and details how so-called new approach methodologies – NAMs – are revolutionising the transition to animal free innovation

Episode 3: Prof Amanda Ellison

Professor of Neuroscience at Durham University, Amanda Ellison discusses her career, and how a new human neuroscience technique – Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) – pushed the boundaries of human relevant science.

Amanda offers her thoughts on where New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) will take the medical research community, and shares her passion for scientific communication. She also details how she is inspiring the next generation of animal replacement scientists.
