Thank you so much to Flux for having me DJ the premiere of #EatingAnimalsDocumentary 🙌 No matter where you stand, this is an important film that highlights the horrendous conditions in which animals that are raised for human consumption live. You know where I stand. I don’t think the answer lies in reducing meat consumption, but rather in wholly removing it from the diet. The ultimate goal is a #plantbased diet for the entire planet. Given the largely unavoidable brute reality of today’s meat production, “It’s only a matter of time before we move from where we are now, to a world in which more and more people are saying maybe we shouldn’t be consuming them in the first place.” - Bruce Friedrich 📸: @bfeinzimer #Vegan#PlantBased#VegansInMusic#VeganDJ#MoviePremiere
It's a doozy today on the Afternoon Show! Not only is our program entirely fueled by the requests of our wonderful Amplifier donors, but it is also the birthday of #Prince ! I am, as always, so excited to share some of my most beloved Prince tracks with you-- which would not be possible without the generosity of our donors 💜 To all Amplifiers: email 'email@example.com' to throw your favorites in... the theme is 'Summer Jams' 🌞🎶 Thank you!
