I have been waiting for this podcast. James is so amazing! He is such a positive guy, i love how he spreads the message. Thank you guys for posting this.
He certainly is a very special and unique gift to the vegan movement. Thanks for listening and commenting Melissa 🙂
Really enjoyed this podcast. Natasha, Luca and James, you are all doing great things to raise awareness for our animal friends, thank you.
Thank you Brenda, and what an incredibly inspirational man your son is! 🙂 xo
I didn’t know much about James and found this podcast really interesting. It has inspired me to think about a possible vegan festival in the town where I live. I think that a festival is a greater positive publicity than a demonstration. During a demonstration, some streets are closed and the locals hate that. In addition to that there is usually aggression or just negative energy (people shouting etc.) which might have adverse effects. Thanks a lot for what you do!
Glad you found the episode interesting Sabina. Thanks for listening and commenting 🙂
