A must listen...
Ed Winters has created the perfect podcast for vegans and non-vegans alike. If you struggle about talking about veganism or to vegans in general,this is a great podcast to obtain knowledge, and advice about speaking up for animals.
Ed is very educated, measured, and thoughtful. This podcast is delightful to listen to even when the content can sometimes be upsetting. Ed is respectful even when the guest is coming from the other side of his views, I’ve learned so much in how to speak to others from him and how to approach subjects humbly and kind. Definitely recommend!
Best Podcast ever!
