AgTalk S2E7 - The Story of the Roaring Forties Lamb with James Madden

Marcus Oldham AgTalk

It is my pleasure to welcome James Madden, CEO of Flinders + Co to the Marcus Oldham AgTalk Podcast. Flinders + Co is a premium food production and distribution company founded in 2010 by James father David Madden. As the name suggest it is based on Flinders Island which is situated in the Bass Strait just off the northeast coast of Tasmania. As started, James is the CEO which makes him responsible for the day to day operations of the company. He oversees brand design, marketing and sales strategy, and production and process improvements. He was responsible for the purchase, renovation, and initial production of the company’s abattoir on Flinders Island Flinders + Co started by using a direct distribution model into Victoria that has grown into a successful stand alone operation. James describes himself as a jack of many trades and a master of none. His childhood was spent on the farm, adolescence in the suburbs, and his early adulthood in the city. He first studied to be a pilot, and his first job was in a sheep skin salting shed. In 2018 James changed the identity of the company from Flinders Island Meat to Flinders + Co (the reason why we will be discussing).  He describes the business as a purpose driven organization with a vision he is proud of which is “To Cultivate a Better Food World”. Also on 1st Dec 2018, Flinders + Co became the first meat company in the world, to fully offset all carbon emissions from not only their business, but every kilogram of meat they sell. He said to me, "We’ve got no idea what we’re doing, but we are learning and trying to do our best at every step of the way" which makes him an ideal guest for the podcast.

Ep. 32: The Recovery of the Self: Embodied and Embedded Persons, with James Madden, Ph.D.

The Moral Imagination

In this episode, I speak with James Madden about his book, "Mind, Matter, and Nature", about philosophy of mind, and what it means to be an embodied and an embedded person. We discuss how the loss of a sense of ourselves as embodied and embedded leads to a loss of contact with the world and ultimately to nihilism. We discuss competing visions of the person—materialism, dualism and Aristotle's and St. Thomas Aquinas' idea of Hylomorphism—a union of form and matter—and what it means for a person to lead a good life. We talk about a number of issues including trans-humanism, the idea of uploading ourselves, neuroscience, Aristotle's four causes, Bob the Chameleon, Heidegger's critique of Technology, and Aristotle's ethics as a response to Sophocles Oedipus cycle. If you are interested in what it means to be a person, you will enjoy this wide ranging episode with James Madden.
