Continuing our 10 Stages of What Happens When You Stop Eating Animals, today I focus on Stage 5. This is when we are so acutely aware of how large the problem is, of how many animals are suffering, how many animals humans hurt, how many atrocities we commit against animals, how systematic it is, and how systemic it is. And as a result, we may feel overwhelmed, angry, and sad. In this episode, I talk about how we can harness these emotions to be joyful, effective advocates for veganism and animals.
Thank you to all of the listeners sponsors as well as

In addition to sharing with you some exciting news (what I just did, where I'm going, and what's to come), in today's episode I feature questions from callers all of which have to do with dealing with real-world issues. Of course, this is what I address all the time on the podcast, but as I was organizing calls, it struck me as a theme for today's episode. We’ve got one caller asking about how to be the vegan family member who's asked by children why you're vegan. We’ve got one caller asking about how to navigate talking to the organizers of an extracurricular outing that her son should be part of but that involves exploiting animals. And we’ve got another caller asking about how to respond to friends who insist that zoos are valuable for animals because they're places of conservation. Listen for my responses.
