We speak about one woman's courageous decision to leave behind an unwholesome industry, deeply embedded in American tradition. As well as her decision to write openly about her experiences.
Laura Jean Schneider reflects on this harmful industry and how the demand it's product, beef and leather, continues to carry damaging consequences for the welfare of animals, human health and our global ecosystems. She considers the industry's morally questionable and often violent culture, connecting it's practices to degrading habitats, threats to native wildlife and much more.
