Live and Let Live
Marc Pierschel joins us to discuss his new documentary that examines our relationship with animals, the history of veganism and the ethical, environmental and health reasons that move people to go vegan. From butcher to vegan chef, from factory farmer to farm sanctuary owner – Live and Let Live tells the stories of six individuals who decided to stop consuming animal products for different reasons and shows the impact the decision has had on their lives.
On a rainy day last autumn, Tim and I had a chance to visit Judy and nearly all of the 190 porcine residents at Pigs Peace Sanctuary. We brought our audio recorder and we’re happy to present some of our favourite moments from the visit.
Pigs Peace is only two hours south of Vancouver (one hour north of Seattle). We highly recommend booking a tour. The property is huge and really lovely, there’s a vegan information centre on site, and Judy has so much wisdom to share. Before you visit be sure to check their wishlist and bring them what you can.
