184: San Diego Vegan Democrats

 

Chyann Cox is the President of San Diego Vegan Democrats and Delegate of the California Democratic Party. In this episode, Chyann discusses some of the ways people can get legally involved with San Diego's vegan community to help combat animal cruelty on a judicial level.
*Disclosure*: Although this podcast discusses political parties, I do not wish to discuss personal association (or lack of association) with political parties. This episode is about two people discussing similar views on broad vegan topics.</>

183: Sale Ranch Sanctuary

 

Jen Sale fell in love with horses as a young girl, and her animal-loving journey began with her first horse, Patches. In 2011, with the intention of solely running a horse rescue, Jen and her husband moved to Temecula. Little did they know, they'd switch to a plant-based diet and start rescuing all animals; especially those in dire need of medical care and emotional connection.

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!

104: Are “Clean Meats” the Future?

104: Are "Clean Meats" the Future?

Dawn Ressel specializes in vegan entrepreneurship and business as a form of activism. She also runs a workshop called "Jumpstart Your Vegan Business" where people can learn to promote the development and growth of new vegan businesses. But, the topic I'm even more excited about is the idea of "clean meats".
What is clean meat (cellular agriculture)? Is it considered vegan? Are animals harmed? Could it be our future? It's a very controversial topic in the vegan world, but Dawn makes a clear analogy of us being "at war" and fighting for the animals from multiple angles, as being the only solution to victory.

88: Death Race

88: Death Race

What is a protest? What goes into the organization of a protest? Who gets involved? What are the laws? All of these questions, and many more were definitely on my list for guest, Ellen Ericksen. Ellen has been vegan for a really long time, and has been fighting for animals since she can remember. She's extremely knowledgable of both sides of the law; the protester's side and the cruelty-promoting business' side. Ellen has earned a reputation for causing unethical businesses to shut down, but it has all come from a place of love for the animals!

With San Diego being the home of the deathly Del Mar Races, the Del Mar Fair, Sea World and once even a slaughterhouse, Ellen (unfortunately) has no shortage of people to talk to, regarding their financial contributions that encourage the prosperity of these businesses. Many of us know why Sea World has a bad reputation, but when Ellen told me what goes on at the Del Mar Fair, I was shocked!
