If you don't know already, John Lewis is a fitness pro, public speaker, and all-round Vegan Bad Ass. In the latest episode of the Plant Based News Podcast, the star sits down with host, and PBN's Co-Founder, Robbie Lockie to discuss his upcoming documentary Hungry For Justice, racism in the vegan community, and PETA's controversial Superbowl campaign. "We've been brainwashed to think we have to eat the animal, we have to eat that fat, we've been told that this so-called 'soul food' was ours, and it wasn't," Lewis states. "And the worst thing about 'normal' and 'tradition', and I put those two words in quotes when I say that, is that it doesn't make it right."
