    Vegan environmental science prof Dr. Greg Schwartz on fighting climate change with your diet

    The best way to fight climate change is with your diet.

Dr. Schwartz explains the concept of "concentration of calories", and why animal agriculture's water and carbon footprints are so high.

    Jon Goodman on many ways "hustling" is B.S., and focusing on one thing to achieve success

Also, career advice for people who have extremely wide-ranging interests. Oh, and seitan!

Amazing!!!!

I became a vegan about 11 months ago and this podcast has helped me so much on my journey. I love listening to this podcast and continuing to improve my diet. This podcast is truly a combination of educational, fun and inspirational material!

Ren Jones Episode

I almost skipped this episode because I was specifically looking for episodes focused on veganism. This episode was so great and right on the money (pun intended,
Compound interest). It was so energizing. I gave up running for my 40th birthday last year and now I walk 2-4 miles every afternoon in addition to strength training in the morning. I never looked forward to my afternoon run because it was hard and made my legs hurt. I always look forward to my afternoon walks. They allow me to reflect on my day and listen to podcast that educate and feed me. I’m also getting better results! Glad I found this! Thank you!

5 months a vegan never looking back...

I was very happy to find this podcast. Podcasts are the perfect motivation for continuing this lifestyle change. I have been telling my family and friends that a vegan lifestyle is easy to maintain because there are multiple motivating factors. Health, environment, compassion for living things and the food tastes amazing! This podcast resonated with me when Karina and her guest were discussing this multi-motivational approach. Every other fad diet or lifestyle change uses only one motivation-that’s why they fail. I cant believe it took me 42 years to make this change, but I’m so happy I did! Thank you for promoting this lifestyle Karina!
