Finally, on YouTube Michael recommended the Bite Sized Vegan and Could you face the reality of where your food comes from?
What a legend right?
Michael truely is such a calming and wise force of influence within the animal rights movement here in Sydney. His patience and positivity is so very evident every time I see him. I found it fascinating to learn that at least in part that admirable patience comes from Michael’s awareness that he – like the super vast majority of us – was not born vegan and did not embrace the lifestyle the second he learned of the cruelty associated with animal agriculture.
If a man like Michael cannot be persuaded to abstain from veal after the lady he’s most eager to impress describes the horror behind that flesh of baby bobby calf… well then that’s just got to be a reminder to us all that we’re planting little vegan seeds and diligently watering them rather than trying to convince and convert on the spot with our vegan outreach.
On the matter of planting seeds, I’d like to introduce a new format of solo podcast show that I’m aiming to produce once a month.
It’s an open letter – sent to an individual or a business that I respect, who has influence over a very large platform and who is not vegan. Each letter will be entirely individual. So for example next week show 555 is called: Feminism, The Dairy Industry and Separating Mums From Their Babies.
This is one of my fav solo format shows I’ve produced in a long long time. I found it emotional and all-consuming to write.
Although I’m an optimist I don’t necessarily expect these open letters will even make their way to the correct person with gate keepers and all however by also releasing them in podcast format I hope they’re of value to you. I have a lot more planned to make this new format more impactful.
I have a lot of individuals and business’s to approach too, so please stay tuned and after you listen to show 555 if you have any suggestions for future open letters please let me know? Joe Rogan and Tim Ferriss are high on my list.
