On veganism: “I’ve been reading so much about climate change and just sitting with what it means to eat animals and animal products—the environmental cost of it, more than anything. It all came to a head when I read Jonathan’s book; he just laid out the facts so clearly. And I just sighed to myself, like, Oh, God, I’ve really got to do this. Am I going to be a person who acts, or am I going to be a person who doesn’t act?”
