Plant Strong

Because of his age and background as a firefighter, his message seems to be welcomed by a different demographic than some other voices in the vegan movement.

The Heathen Down Under

The video had over 14,000 views on it’s first day, and lucky for us the first mail he opened was the book! Oh My Zeus! And I just loved his reaction, and then his realization that this was a secular book about Christian fairy tales. The best. Thank you for sharing, Dave! Continue Reading →

Free AudioBook: “The End of Faith” by Sam Harris

Apparently, one of Sam Harris’s early books, The End of Faith, was not read by the author. The audiobook voice actor did an appalling job of reading the book, as Sam explains in the first audio reading of his book. To rectify this, and to add more discussion to a book that is highly controversial, he has recorded the book himself with additional comments.
