201: From Hunter to Vegan

201: From Hunter to Vegan

 

Chris Peed grew up hunting and fishing in Ohio and, by the time he was 12, he was able to use his own firearm after completing a hunter's safety course.

In this episode, Chris shares some of the common "past-times" and "sports" that he grew up participating in as a young boy. Like many children, he had been taught that certain animals were put on Earth for him to kill, and others for him to love. But, years later, after a life-changing phone call from his wife, Chris' world had completely changed.

192: Anonymous for the Voiceless

192: Anonymous for the Voiceless

 

Asal Alamdari is the Co-Founder and Director of Anonymous for the Voiceless; an international group of people sharing standard practice factory farm footage while wearing masks and standing in square-like formations, better known as Cubes of Truth.

As a child, Asal witnessed the ceremonial practice of lamb slaughter on the streets of Iran, which provoked the idea that she would never again consume lamb.

Years later, Asal came across a video of a fur farm, which prompted her to do something about animal cruelty. With her partner Paul, Asal co-founded Anonymous for the Voiceless, and today, the organization has over 1000 chapters and has hosted over 15,000 events worldwide!

124: Breakfast Republic

124: Breakfast Republic

What happens when a vegan has the Owner and the Corporate Executive Chef of an egg-dominant restaurant on her show? It's not what you think, guys; Breakfast Republic is doing big things here in San Diego! Not only have they added a few vegan items to the menu (they're friggin' amazing; I've had them!), but they even removed a lot of the animal products from their non-vegan items (by replacing the butter with oil, etc), to create less of a chance of contamination.

Let's give a big round of applause for (in my opinion) one of the most vegan-conscious, but otherwise non-vegan breakfast joints for taking the extra step to create an environment for vegans to feel safe to eat in!

103: The Butcher’s Son

103: The Butcher's Son

Forrest Folen went from Butcher's son to VEGAN! Aside from the major mental shift that was necessary for this transformation, Forrest is very well connected with the health and fitness community. However, we wasn't always the fitness guy either. When he was younger, he made some poor health choices, which led him to homelessness. Now, he's been in the fitness industry for over 17 years and has opened multiple boot camp locations along the coast of California. He's also done consulting for over 200 fitness centers around the world and spends a lot of his time working closely with an organization called "Solutions for Change", which is dedicated towards helping those in need.
