UPC Podcast Episode 2:
Meat is NOT “Essential” and
Free From Harm’s Robert Grillo

UPC’s new Hope for the Animals Podcast had a fantastic launch last week with over 100 listeners. People from all over the world tuned in to our first episode, listening in from the U.S., Canada, France, Mexico, and India. We are introducing our second episode and hope that you will join us as a regular listener.


In Episode 2, Hope will discuss how the current pandemic crisis is affecting our food supply and the meat industry. Then we have a conversation with activist and author Robert Grillo talking about his book Farm to Fable and his work with Slaughter Free Cities shutting down slaughterhouses in Chicago. Robert is the founder and director of Free from Harm, a non-profit dedicated to helping end animal exploitation.

UPC’s Hope for the Animals Podcast covers a variety of farmed animal issues including the ethical, environmental, spiritual, heartbreaking, and heartwarming aspects of living vegan. In every episode, we will have engaging conversations with special guests on the critical reasons for living a vegan lifestyle covering issues such as the humane hoax, effective communication and outreach in animal advocacy, and current events that are relevant to the protection of animals. We hope you will enjoy this fresh and innovative form of outreach and help us by sharing it with your online community.
