NBSV 157: Ex sheep farmer, now vegan JH Burnett shares his powerful story
Sheep farmer-turned-vegan JH Burnett speaks with me about his experiences in animal agriculture, his vegan transition, and more. This is one of the most raw conversations that’s been aired on the podcast thus far, so I’m really grateful to JH for sharing his story.
JH is a former sheep farmer and breeder in the dairy industry who, after the atrocities he witnessed in these industries, turned vegan and an animal rights activist. He openly shares his gruelling story and absolute low point, and how he gave life a second chance, dedicating himself to the animal liberation movement.
He’s written a memoir, Ex-Farmer Goes Vegan, offers vegan-inspired coaching programs, and, along with his wife Elle, co-creates a variety of vegan children’s books.
Trigger warnings: animal abuse and suicide.

Jen Sinkler on the fitness industry and transitioning her work to the environmental field
Jen Sinkler has a few different titles: writer, editor, trainer, and art maker [to name a few.]
In recent years, her focus as a fitness trainer has pivoted. She trains clients out of a local gym and hosts a community workout group, but her focus has expanded to a bigger-picture approach: learning about the links between the environment and personal health. We discuss a few things that aren’t working in the fitness industry, ableism in the sector, and Jen's process of learning about community organization, and how to get involved with pertinent issues on local and state-wide levels.
Since 2018, Jen has been studying and practicing various forms of visual art — drawing and collage, in particular — and she’s preparing to launch a greeting-cards company.
We discuss her many roles, projects, and what she’s discovered as her focus in the fitness industry has shifted [you’ll want to hear this!]
