Documentary Review: The Ghosts in Our Machine

Happy World Vegan Day! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve wished people that already today but it still puts a smile on my face to say (or type). So, I’m back.

I believe animals should be in the wild where they belong and not in enclosed spaces for us to gawk at. And then … Continue reading Caught between a rock and a hard place
