David Boles: Human Meme

Welcome to the David Boles: Human Meme podcast! You may subscribe via Apple iTunes, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, Spotify and RSS or your own podcast player. We explore ideas of knowing, merits of sharing, and the danger of thought -- as one listener wrote about this podcast; "Mindfulness with an edge" and another said, "You have the spirit of philosophy; you inspire dialectic thoughts."

There is glory in the bean. There is salvation in the nut! 40 years ago, some Midwestern farmers gave up growing alfalfa -- animal feed -- to instead grow soybeans to feed people. Today, dairy farms are giving up the cow to grow the almond nut. The cruelty of Animal Agriculture is dying, while the Human Feed Harvest is...
