122: Direct Action Everywhere – DxE

122: Direct Action Everywhere - DxE

Born and raised in Iowa, Matt Johnson grew up with plenty of farmers, hunters and fishers in his family. As a kid, he made a decision to not eat animals after making the connection that they were sentient beings, but it wasn't until 2013 that he went fully vegan.

Since 2015, Matt has been the press coordinator, as well as an open rescue investigator with the animal rights network Direct Action Everywhere, also known as DxE.

In this episode, Matt shares what it means to be involved in "direct action" as well as the legality of open-rescues under our current system.

108: Plant Based World

108: Plant Based World

Ben Davis was once the guy that felt he needed meat in every meal in order to perform athletically. But, after he really thought about his morals and where they aligned, he realized that his food choices didn't reflect. It didn't take him long to understand that the meat he once thought of as fuel, was actually hindering him from growth. Today, Ben is the Council Chair for the Plant Based World Conference & Expo and invites you to check out the next event!
