Very enriching interview; thanks for the introduction, it helps this newbie!
I was surprised nothing was said about the “gag Ag” bills in many states. Which is a good example of how corporate has taken over our govt.
Good to note the poisoning of the Veggies by meat product runoff.
You are welcome. I’ve covered the ag gag bill with Nathan Runkle when he was last on. Hugs
I loved that phrase “Give a cluck.” As if I didn’t already have enough reasons to be a vegetarian, along comes Karen! She has given me even more ammunition to fire off when people snidely introduce me as a non-meat eater.
