210: Holistic Vibrations

Jon grew up in the vegan/punk/straight edge scene in Baltimore, Maryland. Growing up with an abusive dad, then later seeing the documentary Earthlings, Jon made the correlation between the pain he had experienced and the pain the animals were experiencing in standard practice animal agriculture.

Aside from remaining an ethical vegan, Jon is also a Certified Yoga Teacher and performs sound healing meditation, which he describes it's importance in detail, especially for activists or those facing repetitive trauma.

136: Pain Into Purpose

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!
