178: José for Congress

178: José for Congress


José Caballero grew up in a small town in Texas to parents of Panamanian, Puerto Rican, and Mexican descent. Until the age of five, José grew up with both parents, however, after José's father was imprisoned for drug dealing and money laundering, his mother was forced to raise him and his younger sister on a less than average income, working multiple jobs to support them.

Today, José is running for US Congress CA53 to end all animal agriculture subsidies and inform the public of the health dangers associated with animal products, but his story had a bit of an interesting start to it.

Disclosure: Although I've allowed a politician on the show, I do not discuss my personal association (or lack of association) with political parties.

169: Self-Reflection

169: Self-Reflection

This episodes contains language and content not suitable for children. In this episode, I've done a bit of self-reflecting (What? No guest??... NOPE). What is this thing called life, and what's my purpose here? How do we heal from past traumas and use them for the best today?

If you're looking to the answers to those questions, you won't find them here.. you'll just find me pondering the thoughts in my head. Hopefully I can at least help you feel like you're not alone if you are thinking the same thing. Love you guys!

Elia Nikolaev started his journey through living a more compassionate life around the age of 22, when he read the great Paramahansa Yogananda's "Autobiography of a Yogi", which was a gateway into his next phase of life. From there, he took his first Hatha Yoga class, and eventually became certified in 2006.

In this episode, Elia describes the importance of yoga and meditation, and how to incorporate the principals derived from those practices, into the foods we eat.

Grant Plummer is the founder of Veg'n Out, one of San Diego's best burger joints! After years of his family talking about veganism, the concept finally clicked for him when he learned about the environmental impact that animal agriculture has on the planet.
