150: Peace by Vegan

Ryuji Chua is an animal rights activist and content creator with millions of YouTube video views. Just like most of us, Ryuji did not grow up vegan; in fact he states that he assumed he would be eating eggs for breakfast for the rest of his life. Then, a few years ago, Ryuji made the connection between his breakfast choices, and the impact they were having on the animals and the environment.

In this episode, Ryuji shares his own transformational story and gives us some tips on how to peacefully and lovingly talk to others, even under the most stressful of situations.

136: Pain Into Purpose

Melanie Langston-Bazzell is one of the strongest people I have ever met. After a traumatic accident on a San Diego freeway, Melanie suffered major injuries to her brain and other parts of her body.

There's no doubt she went through a period of depression, but rather than feeling sorry for herself, she decided to get active for the animals because she knew exactly what it meant to not have a voice. Melanie's story is truly heart-warming and I hope you all experience the same joy hearing it as I did!

Think you're doing all you can do as an activist? You may want to think again! Meet 10 year old, Angelina Poli! In this episode, Angelina talks all about how she became vegan, what she eats for school lunches and how to educate people on their daily choices. You guys! This episodes is one of my favorites.
