At 17 years old, James Aspey was diagnosed with leukemia and was given only 6 weeks to live. He beat the cancer, lived a life of hard partying, drugs, and developed an eating disorder. 

Many years later, his life changed on a cruise ship – of all places! 

Fast forward to today and James has replaced drugs, cancer, and bulimia with surfing, vegan activism, and meditation.

In 2014, James took a 365 day vow of silence to raise awareness for animals… and since breaking that vow on mainstream television, he has not stopped talking and educating people about animal liberation and peace. 

As an animal rights activist, James has taken part in a multitude of different forms of activism, including giving hundreds of talks around the world, with his most popular speech having 12 million views on social media! 

It was a pleasure to catch up with and learn from today’s special guest, James Aspey.
