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.

70: Vegan News 2

Vegan Danielle has a podcast. I am vegan and have a podcast. Together we recorded this episode to discuss some prominent vegans suddenly not being vegan anymore.
Danielle feels that money and greed have taken precedence over the animals and has less sympathy for these people. I try to take a more understanding approach towards these types of situations.
In this episode Danielle and I discuss these topics and the possible repercussions of people's actions in the media.

149: I'm Not Vegan Anymore

Victoria Mahdion is vegan and has a podcast. I am vegan and have a podcast. Together we recorded this episode to discuss some prominent vegans suddenly not being vegan anymore (because apparently fish and eggs have the magical cure-all for underlying mental and physical disorders).

Victoria is probably a bit more understanding towards these situations, where I feel money and greed have taken precedence over the animals, and therefore have less sympathy.
