Hi, my name is Calen. If you listen to this episode, you will learn that there are some changes happening at the Sanctuary Tour podcast! I recently took over the show and recorded a podcast episode with a (dare I say?) pre-vegan. After living vegan for around 8 years now and eating a diet that is free of animal flesh or secretions, it is easy for me to forget about all of the questions, worries, and criticisms I had about this lifestyle and ethical choice before embracing it. So, I put a call out into the world wide webs for someone who might be on the beginning of that journey that I embarked on years ago. 

My guest, Ahlix Gunn, came to the conversation harboring some thoughtful questions about about vegan ethics, a plant-based diet, animal rights activism, and much more. As we dove deep into the world of veganism, I took a non-judgmental approach to a conversation that can often and easily turn into a heated debate. (For good reason!) 

So come one, come all! Vegans and non-vegans alike! Let’s talk about truth, ethics, activism, and the future of the planet.
