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.

181: The Greenbaum Foundation


Jim Greenbaum has been interested in resolving injustices that exist in our society since he was a child in Louisiana. When he was a young adult, he had the idea of combating some of these issues legally, by attending law school. At the last minute, Jim decided to switch to a business major, with the idea that he could make a larger impact that way.

Thankfully, Jim was far from wrong. After a few "practice" attempts at business, Jim was able to reach a goal to help support organizations dealing with human rights, and later added a focus on animal rights.

Today, Jim has successfully supported numerous organizations, including Animal Equality, Earthling Ed, The Humane League, The Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, as well as documentaries such as Game Changers, What the Health and Cowspiracy (to name a few)!
