  • Meat Eater is bad for hunters

    I can’t support this podcast knowing that the meat eater machine promotes things only to line their pockets and is counter to the interests of the hunting public

  • Thank you

    A big thanks to you and Steve for inviting on anti-predator, anti-wildlife, pro-industrial and corporate agriculture folks and organizations on your podcasts. Love seeing hunters masquerading as conservationists and lovers of native wildlife defend agriculture over native habitats and native flora and fauna. Cows not condos! Amazing!
