Outstanding research.

It is easy to think of vegetarianism as a 20th Century trend, or more precisely, something particularly rooted in the Aquarian Age and later. In this podcast, Mr. McDonald winds his way through the long history of abstention from animal products, the motivations of early vegetarians, interviewing many interesting people on the way.

This is quite produced and well-written and well-worth anyone's time, whether you are a vegetarian (or vegan) or not.
