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.
