Miles vs. Veganism: Food Deserts and Barbecue Social Pressure

In this episode, we force our views down the throat of our lovely guest, Miles Bridges. Miles is a musical artist and web developer. He’s an intelligent, honest, and compassionate person. Despite all that, he pays for animals to be slaughtered so that he can experience chunks of their corpse’s flesh in his mouth.

We explore the things holding him back from becoming vegan. They appear to be fish, barbecue, convenience, and ignorance. I politely SLAM HIM WITH THE FACTS.
