Do We Need Carnitine? Preachy Vegan Advice, Enemas, and Gary Taubes | Q&A 009

Listen on Google Play MusicWe’re back with another Q&A! We’ve had a lot of questions lately, so decided to put out another Q&A show a bit sooner than normal. I’m writing this post and putting up the show as I sit in the London-Heathrow Airport on my way back to the USA after such an incredible trip abroad. Feeling the love and gratitude for the experiences I had and can’t wait to do it again someday. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out my short recap video of the trip and help support our Mercy For Animals campaign:
