144: Vegan for the Booty

144: Vegan for the Booty

*Language may be offensive to some listeners.* Samantha and Kassie are models, travelers and all around bad asses! Samantha has a Masters in Industrial Psychology and is an environmental enthusiast. Kassie writes closed captioned scripts for the deaf and hard of hearing. These two babes are way more than meets the eye!

In this episode, Samantha and Kassie swing by the studio in San Diego, after visiting two of my favorite spots; The Purple Mint and Mission Square Market, as they talk about how they sneak activism between their sexy modeling photos.

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!

Over the last year, Animal Liberation Activist Joshua Entis has been traveling the globe giving inspirational talks and workshops in over 21 countries on how to become the strongest and loudest voice for the animals. He uses his sales background to help navigate outreach conversations and motivate others to choose a more compassionate lifestyle.

Today, Joshua joins me in studio during his trip to San Diego for the #ChangeMakersTour after I had the pleasure of doing an Anonymous for the Voiceless Cube of Truth as well as hearing one of his talks regarding Sustainable Activism. In this talk, Josh shares a little more about himself as well as some of the ways we can work towards being more active.

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

Renee King-Sonnen went from rancher's wife to vegan highly because of a special calf she calls Rowdy Girl. Renee's husband Tommy wanted her to care for the calf, hoping that she would become a better Rancher's Wife.

Renee quickly realized the cows were sentient beings as she watched the mothers and babies cry for each other when they were separated. She bought Rowdy Girl for $300, which gave her the official title as a "Rancher", having no idea that this was to be the beginning of her journey towards veganism.

Today, Renee and Tommy's ranch that was once called "Sonnen Ranch" is a sanctuary named after her calf, Rowdy Girl. Rowdy Girl Sanctuary is recognized as a 501C-3 (Non-Profit) and houses 107 animals, 62 of which are cows!

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!
