Vegan and Vibrant

Maddie Krasno on the Psychological Impact of Animal Testing

Episode Summary

Y'ALL. I am not new to the podcast game, having hosted 2 others shows in the past couple of years— but Vegan and Vibrant is the most aligned with my mission, values, and dharma, so suffice to say I am REALLY FREAKING EXCITED to start and share it with you. And I couldn't have asked for a better guest to kick it off— my new friend, the formidable, spunky, genuine, and smart-as-hell Maddie Krasno.

Episode Notes

In classic millennial fashion, Maddie and I met on Instagram, and I was immediately blown away and inspired by her deep commitment to animal activism and her clarity in communicating about veganism from a perspective of intersectional liberation.

Maddie has an important story to tell about her journey from working in a primate lab (which led to PTSD she is still working through) to working in different facets of animal protection for the past 7 years. I know you're going to LOVE this episode.
