Episode 014: James Aspey – From Drugs and Cancer to Vegan Activism and Meditation

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.References* This podcast episode was sponsored by Mes Amies Soaps.

Episode 011: Earthling Ed – The man behind “Land of Hope and Glory”

The new film Land of Hope and Glory exposes the truth about animal agriculture in the UK and really breaks down the misconception that farms certified as free-range and organic are any better than regular factory farms.The film also proves that the horrors of the animal agriculture industry don’t just happen in America … these are standard industry practices that happen all over the world - including in the UK. The film has had a great amount of success in such a short time since its release, and we wanted to learn more about the film’s production and the man behind the project. Our special guest is animal rights activist, YouTuber, and producer of the film, Earthling Ed. ReferencesLand of Hope and GloryWebsite  YouTube Earthling Ed's YouTube ChannelInstrumental music produced by Chuki Thanks for Listening! To share your thoughts• Leave a comment in the comment section below.• Ask a question in the comment section below for our 'Ask TVC' series.• Share this show on Twitter, Facebook, or any of your other social media. To help out the show• Leave a review and rating on iTunes. Your ratings and reviews really help and we read each one.Enjoyed this episode?

Episode 020: Do You Suffer From Vystopia?

Do you suffer from Vystopia? Perhaps you’ve never even heard of the term? Is there a cure for it? We discuss this and so much more with our special guest, vegan psychologist and author, Clare Mann. Clare has been heavily involved in the Australian vegan and animal rights scene for many years now, and most recently she uploaded a semi-viral video on Facebook about what she calls “Vystopia”. This got our attention and we thought it would make for a fascinating topic to discuss and share with our audience. Sure enough, it was an incredibly stimulating and thought provoking conversation that even exceeded our expectations, and offers our audience many great insights, tips, and strategies with which to feel empowered. We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did.

Episode 017: Ask TVC – Family Problems, Bad Eating Habits, & Anti-Vegan Excuses

Welcome to another episode in our Ask TVC series. In this episode we answer three very different questions we were asked by listeners. The first revolves around being vegan and dealing with stubborn, wilfully ignorant, and spiteful family members. The second asks how to get rid of bad eating habits and struggles with stress eating. The final question looks at a few of the 100+ excuses people use in an attempt to justify their continued consumption of animal products.

Episode 012: Is Eating Animals Bad Karma?

We were asked some great questions by various people about Karma, spiritual truths, and veganism… so we combined some of these questions and answer them in this episode. Do you believe in Karma? Does eating animals give you bad Karma? How do spiritual truths hold up when put in the context of veganism? Lots of great questions that could go in so many directions! Funny how these topics end up creating more questions than offering conclusive answers  ReferencesThe World Peace DietEating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony.We were so inspired by this truly enlightening book that we completed a 3-month online training course to become accredited facilitators of the book.Available on iTunesAvailable on AmazonThe Power of NowA Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment.Available on iTunesAvailable on AmazonConversations With God, Book 1An Uncommon Dialogue.The 3 CWG books we’ve linked are not religious books.

Episode 013: Minimalism – Did We Fail?

We live a fairly transient life and our recent move made us reassess all the stuff we own. Whilst preparing for our move, we were knee-deep in boxes and felt like minimalist failures! What and why are we still holding onto stuff??To give you a better visual of what we recently traveled with, here’s a picture of all our stuff. In this podcast episode, we forgot to mention the fan box … which we also squeezed a wok into! Oh, and the two big backpacks also contain our towels and bedding.We’re thinking of recording another episode about Minimalism - talking more about what it means to us and some of the more difficult items we’ve let go of over the years.If you’d like to hear those stories and more on this topic, let us know in the comments below these notes.

This episode was requested by a listener. They asked us to watch and discuss the film Unlocking The Cage.  The film follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans. After thirty years of struggling with ineffective animal welfare laws, Steve and his legal team, the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), are making history by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform an animal from a thing with no rights to a person with legal protections.
