Nonhuman Radio – Episode 20-09

On today’s show we’ll be covering a few news stories, leading with the anaerobic dairy digester fairy tale being funded by tax dollars, followed by news of the USDA releasing its facility inspection reports, and a new survey that shows that Americans are receptive to the idea of meat-free meals. We’ll end with a short David and Goliath story about a small vegan cheese company versus the California Department of Agriculture.

“The only creature on Earth whose natural habitat is a zoo is a zookeeper.”
― Karl Pilkington, British comedian, author, and actor.
