10: “We’ll look back on this era of humanity as barbaric” – Campaigner CEO Naomi Smith - Sentientist Conversations
Play • 40 min

Naomi is the CEO of Best for Britain, the UK’s leading non-partisan advocacy group upholding internationalist values. Before her campaigning and political career she worked in the corporate world and chaired a number of voluntary groups. She describes herself as an internationalist, xenophile, humanist, vegan. She co-hosts the Oh God What Now? (formerly Remainiacs) and The Bunker podcasts.

In these Sentientist Conversations, we talk about the two most important questions: “what’s real?” & “what matters?”

The video of this conversation is also on our YouTube channel - subscribe so you don’t miss future conversations.

We discuss how Naomi’s personal philosophy has evolved, including her experience of religious sectarianism in Northern Ireland, being excluded from a religious education class and feeling a deep affinity for non-human animals from an early age.
