On today’s show we covered a few news stories, leading with a new trend in corporate divestment — divestment from the livestock sector. That will be followed by news of proposed legislation by vegan Senator Cory Booker, and short piece on the history of milk overproduction in the United States from the activist group Switch4Good. We’ll end with some extraordinary good news by a very special, very long-lived wild king eider.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Humans will always live with contradiction, but we can certainly try to minimize it. One way to do so simply, is to go vegan. It’s actually easier to just do that than to wrestle with the deep hypocrisy detailed so well so often. There’s real joy and peace–not to mention deliciousness and environmental respect–in the process.”
–Gretchen Primack, Poet
