Vegan talks to hunter

Vegan talks to hunter


This is a conversation I had with a hunter. I think this conversation is a good example of how two people can have a meaningful exchange of ideas and learn from each other despite having different opinions. Thank you Micah LaJeunesse for having this discussion with me.

Monique Chan is the founder of Bruized, which is a company based in Toronto, Canada aiming to reduce food waste and provide affordable, healthy, vegan food to the local community. In this conversation, she tells us about how a few years ago, she became an environmentalist, then pescetarian, and finally -  after balling her eyes out within the first 5 minutes of the film “Earthlings” - a vegan. She also tells us about her experience so far with starting her own business. I really like Monique, she’s got a positive attitude, she’s doing good work in the vegan movement, and I really think you’re going to enjoy our conversation.

Sebastiano is working at such a high level on so many exciting things that it's hard to summarize the work he does. I really like these sentences taken from his LinkedIn profile: "Born in Milan, Italy, Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni is an award-winning entrepreneur, activist, investor, and advisor to businesses and governments around the world. Although his expertise spans the food, finance, wine, technology, life sciences, and art sectors, his greatest concern is animals. An impassioned vegan and animal rights activist, Sebastiano’s focus is on promoting the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle globally; overtaking the inefficiency, cruelty and inherent dangers of animal agriculture; revolutionizing the food industry through innovation; fostering rewarding investments in such innovation; and striving to protect the planet from the catastrophic effects of climate change." Querciabella is his wine company that he tells us about in the episode, and I apologize for my poor pronunciation of Italian words. This conversation was an absolute thrill for me. I hope you enjoy listening and that you find it interesting! Email: Instagram: @theveganchampionpodcast Twitter: @theveganchampionpodcast

Talking to my dad about veganism as he watches footage of then dairy industry that he has never seen before. I know it’s not always easy having conversations with family members and I hope this exchange might help you feel better about communicating with your loved ones.
Should we focus on the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet? Maybe we should spend more time talking about the environmental footprint of animal agriculture? What about telling the stories of trillions of animals killed every year by human beings? In this short monologue, I explore the options and come to a conclusion of sorts. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this. How do you think we should be advocating for veganism?
