Using Film to Fight for the End of Meat with Marc Pierschel

Aug 7, 2019

Watch Episode 34 with Marc Pierschel here:

It’s sometimes hard for people to change what they don’t know, and one of the best ways to spread an educational message is through the power of inspiring films. 

Marc Pierschel is a documentary filmmaker who has been advocating for animals personally and professionally for decades. 

He created an online vegan store, which still operates today, in 2002 and wrote a German vegan cookbook in 2009. 

Most recently, he’s the plant-based pioneer behind the films Live and Let Live and The End of Meat and their production company, Blackrabbit Images.

Today he sits down with Dotsie and Alexandra to talk about his journey from vegetarian to vegan to animal rights activist. 

He also shares some of the important insights from his films and chats about the vast cultural differences between the U.S. and Europe when it comes to embracing and expanding the reach of veganism. 

Tune in to hear how this vocal supporter leads by example and education and, after this episode, check out The End of Meat on Amazon Prime.

Balance Hormones, Eliminate Toxins with Functional Medicine Doc, Dr. Koz

Balance Hormones, Eliminate Toxins with Functional Medicine Doc, Dr. Koz

Our guest today is functional medicine practitioner Dr. Peter Kozlowski, and for those who aren’t familiar with functional medicine, you’re in for a real treat. Dr. Koz practices getting to the root of disease rather than treating the symptoms while also addressing mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Doesn’t that make sense?
