Super Trivia Guy ,

Amazing insight into the beginnings of the animal rights movement.

Absolutely loving this podcast with the "equal opportunity" hosts, The Cranky Vegan and Tylor Allan Starr. You need to listen from the first episode to understand why I came up with the equal opportunity hosts tag.
This is a brilliant history of the animal rights movement by the people who were there doing amazing things, way before social media and getting "likes" on posts.
It reminds of when musicians get together and reminisce about all the crazy times, however this subject matter is way more serious, however there are some crazy and fun stories and I have found myself laughing out loud and relating to many of the situations that the guests describe.
This series is for activists young and old. We must learn our history. It is so important to not lose sight of what we are doing.
