It was quite the improv experience. 1st few minutes, my book, the rest, a "thought experiment" in real-time on what the implications would be for the planet and global society. Apparently, some listeners actually thought it had happened and went looking online social media for reference to the event!
It's about 45 minutes streamed or as an MP3 audio download:
Don and I had talked about the possibility the night before, and I said, "sure, you lead, I'll follow." We were basing the idea upon a recent blog anniversary essay I wrote, "While You Were Sleeping..."
A wild ride ensued. We covered, among other things, farm animals, Global Climate Change, water, companion animals and cancer, the entertainment industry, the health profession, the military-industrial complex, and more. Don has interviewed so many "biggies" the past several years (Barnard, Esselstyn, Tuttle, Goldhamer, Greger, etc.) and was quite knowledgeable and obviously "on fire" during the discussion.
In many ways the interactions encapsulated some distilled essences of many of those interviews and what he's learned in his efforts to "change the way we eat, and in effect, change the world." We riffed on a war between two worlds: plant-based and current.
My thanks to Dr. Don for a wonderful bit of time thinking about the future, and the fun we had. It was a tightrope walk, and I'm honored to have been on the rope with him. We all DO need to ponder about and plan for the future inevitability of most of the planet being whole foods plant-based. It's gonna happen.
Check out his archives for so many marvelous and informative interviews (over 600 he's done, don't know how many are in the archives) with authors, nutritionists, scientists, and movers'n'shakers swimming upstream society's river of ignorance. You won't be disappointed.
