Great show. Im not vegan completely, but i want to after conforming with this about the animal cruelty. When i suggest the animal cruelty on factory farms to people i know they say that doesnt happen often. You bring the bigger picture: this animal had to die, and it is sentient and understands whats going on. No matter how "dumb" an animal is it can still feel the pain of injury or death. I kept thinking 'how would i like to be kept in a cage, impregnated and raped of my milk, while my baby goes off to die or suffer the same fate as i if a girl. Its disgusting. I dont eat dairy, but i do eat eggs and meat. I feel sick thinking about how many animals had to die to feed me.
My reason for not going full vegan right now is that my boyfriend is making me valentines day dinner on tuesday, and he already has to find a recipe that doesnt have any dairy, so further limiting would be awfully stressful for him. Its just another 4 days anyway. Ill avoid meat until then, as i have been doing for about 3 weeks, only eating it when told to by my parents or for sit down dinners with my family.
You have a great pod cast. Keep it up!
