Ricardo "Mad Dog" Moreira: Don't mess with this vegan!

Show #51 - Ricardo "Mad Dog" Moreira

January 31, 2008

Our 51st show features vegan athlete and Ultimate Fighting contender Ricardo "Mad Dog" Moreira. Ricardo talks about his path to veganism and how such a seemingly violent sport can jibe with a compassionate vegan ethic. We find how Ricardo gets his protein, how he trains by moving furniture, and why he fights in a cage. In the news we have stories about people contracting neurological diseases from animals, how African refugees are effecting the bush meat trade, and chimps being denied personhood in Austria.
