Podcast Ep. 002: Vegan Turned Hunter

March 30, 2018

In this second episode of the Modern Carnivore podcast I sit down with Robyn Migliorini who is a vegan turned hunter. Robyn and her husband Nick were strict vegetarians, and then vegans, until their bodies started giving feedback indicating that they weren't getting all the nutrients they needed in their diet. However, considering the idea of bringing meat back into their diet was difficult because they originally became vegetarians in part due to all the problems with "factory farming". As a result they started exploring the idea of becoming hunters and responsibly sourcing meat themselves. Robyn's story is very engaging and her perspectives and thoughtful considerations can be appreciated by all.
