I return to Food issues and ecology to discuss the transition to plant based diets and intersections with reactionary politics overall. I cover the double-think of meat eating, kids confused about meat, and a deep dive into the weakness of arguing for animal rights. In the 2nd half I cover reducing food waste with label changes; food sovereignty and a story of its practice in Porto Rico.
