This week the bearded duo delve into another news roundup to discuss a variety of timely topics that have sparked their curiosity. Most notably a vegan author who believes veganism is the solution to America’s gun problem and the revelation that America ranks damn near dead last on a new animal cruelty index. They also discuss a baloney ban and Greenpeace’s new anti industrial meat video, among others.
