Why James and this episode will blow your mind!
James' first major form of vegan activism was a 1-year long vow of silence to raise awareness for animals and promote peace over violence. He broke his silence on Australia's morning show, Sunrise, which went viral, reaching millions and thus amplifying his message of peace.
James travels the globe giving free talks to educate about the option of becoming a vegan and helping people understand the suffering of animals to make food, clothing, and entertainment for human beings. He asks himself the confronting question:
"If we don't need to kill and eat animals to be healthy, what are we doing this for?"
At 17 he was diagnosed with leukemia and told he had six weeks to live. Fast forward to beating that disease, getting hooked on a lot of drugs and letting go of them, overcoming Bulimia and being a dedicated personal trainer for almost a decade, James met a man through his work that changed his perspective on eating animals forever.
James brings patience, unconditional acceptance and a down to earth honesty that is very rare, to everything he speaks about. Even if you are completely new to the concept of veganism, have heard amazing or even challenging things against it, this interview is worth the listen. I am certain that by simply hearing his journey, and the roller coaster that is his life, it would be impossible to walk away from listening to this episode and not be touched in some way, for the rest of your life.
