    Social Media Activist And Professional Speaker. Interview w/ John Oberg | Episode 35

    John Oberg has become one of the most prolific vegan activists in the online age, but did he really expect for something like this to happen? And how has social media changed the meaning of activism?

    2.00: John's vegan story
    13.00: 'Earthlings'
    15.00: Speaking out about animal cruelty (becoming a professional vegan)
