Sentientism Updates: New web site, Peter Singer & other new episodes, Sentientism talks and interviews!

This page will let you know what we’ve been up to but I wanted to share a few highlights:

Criticism, suggestions, offers of help and amplification / sharing are always welcome. Thanks so much for all the help so far and to those who’ve been doing their own things to develop our collective Sentientism project – working to normalise “evidence, reason and compassion for all sentient beings”. A special thanks to Denise and Tarabella who have found our Patreon page and are contributing to our production costs.

The numbers below should give some indication of how many of the remaining ~7.7 billion humans (let alone the powerful AIs) we have yet to persuade 😊. As ever, you and friends are very welcome in any of our online groups. They’re open to anyone interested, not just sentients who have a Sentientist worldview:

Raising Awareness:

  • Sentientism Podcast: 41k downloads, 50 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5-star ratings and appearances in the philosophy podcast charts of ~34 countries (often still way behind Russell Brand and Deepak Chopra ☹)
  • Sentientism YouTube:  65k views, 10k hours watch time, 1,584 subscribers
  • Sentientism.info: 13k visitors and 132k page views in last year
  • Twitter: 4,817 followers, well over 1,000 people on our various Twitter Lists; Instagram: 635 followers; TikTok (don’t tell my kids!); experimental Substack

Communities (a big thank you to the volunteers that set up and run each of these):

Walls:

  • Self-declared Sentientists (including many of you!) - 353
  • Suspected Celebrity Sentientists (including many of you!) – added Kate Nash, Max Tegmark, Douglas Hofstadter, Brian Greene, Otep Shamaya, Nicky Campbell, Sara Pascoe, Tania Lombrozo (future guest) – 224.

Please forward this on to others who might find the Sentientism worldview interesting! They can sign up for updates at the bottom of Sentientism.info.

I hope you and yours are well. Here’s to a more compassionate, thoughtful world,

Jamie.
