Episode 126
(Air Date: September 16th, 2020)

I swear, I thought I was going to be right back with another episode a week later.
In fact the day I posted this episode, I also recorded another awesome interview (which I’ll post very shortly) and then a series of things happened. My main computer (with all my everything on it) completely crashed, the world pretty much blew up, the United States suddenly discovered racism is indeed alive and well and needs to be dealt with once and for all…

So I once again apologize for this enormous delay.

And during that time, on June 19th, Canadian activist Regan Russell was struck and killed by a truck driver outside of Fearman’s, a Toronto-area slaughterhouse where Regan was holding vigil along with the Toronto Pig Save Movement.

This is beyond tragic. My God, just a year ago, I was there myself, outside of Fearman’s at another pig vigil. I can’t imagine what her loved ones, friends, and fellow activists must be going through.

In a subsequent episode, we will go into more detail about Regan, her life, and her passion for animal rights — with stories shared by those who knew her.

But for today, I am interviewing Orlando Martina, one of the organizers of the Run For Regan.
