Sorry about all the popped 'p's - I had the mic in a bad place. I used to edit them out in pro tools but I hate Garageband and that's all I've got, I don't know how to use it properly to do cross fades. Sorry, it must sound awful in headphones. Please forgive me.
Wow. I was sheltered for so long at my job. This is getting back out into the real world and I am finding out again about all my limitations and the things holding me back (myself, basically). It's a painful look in the mirror but worth doing.
Here is Peggy's video from The World Vegan Summit - it is so inspiring. All the videos from the abolitionist approach advocates are so please watch them all.
2. I completely forgot that years ago I had heard of one situation that a vegan was going through, who did have a terrible medical condition in which her body could not make or maintain its own cholesterol, and therefore was in an awful situation as was really really struggling to find a way to maintain her vegan diet without dying, literally. It was a very hard thing, and a long struggle, that was very real, and this was a situation in which animal products (which unlike plants contain cholesterol) seemed to be the only medically viable option for them. Luckily, and also because this person believed in animal rights they finally found a way (I don't know the exact details) to manage it without having to compromise their veganism. So I actually also relayed that story to the person I was talking to as well, using it as an example to talk about the animal rights point of view.
3. Sorry if the quality is so bad, I was just planning to do a 10 minute video but it turned into 40 minutes so too big for me to figure out how to upload, so it's now a podcast with really bad audio quality.
Here is the ever important, historical, monumental must listen debate between Erik Marcus and Gary Francione (if calling it a 'conversation' will make you listen to it, then call it a conversation) it's a MUST LISTEN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-NWA4Rf120
This is that blog post I talked about about the coalition needed for these single issue campaigns (also discussed in the podcast with Bob Linden and Wayne Hsiung). It's called" Why Welfare Reform Campaigns and Single-Issue Campaigns Necessarily Promote Animal Exploitation http://www.abolitionistapproach.com/14542-2/
Apologies for bad sound quality and no music, it is FREEZING here and I don't have my heater and so I am just in bed rugged up and I am only getting out of bed to get food or cups of tea. Too cold!!! So I just recorded this on my phone in bed. Luxury of modern life I am very lucky.
Here is the video of the debate. The sound is TERRIBLE someone didn't turn off their darn cell phone >:( But despite that it's worth a listen just grin and bear it. It's worth it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8OMtRiD3oI
