If you like beef, pork, and chicken, you probably won’t like this episode. But listen anyway to find out why. Slow dialog: 1:03 Explanations: 2:49 Fast dialog: 15:10 Ashley: I’m thinking of becoming a vegetarian. I think it would be the ethical thing to do. Paul: Are you going to eat eggs and dairy? If you’re doing this for ethical reasons, you really should avoid anything made with animal products or animal by-products. Ashley: I guess you’re right. Paul: Then you’re going to be a vegan. You won’t be able to eat any milk, butter, cheese, or yogurt. Ashley: Really? I guess I’ll have to be a vegan then. Paul: You’ll have to eat a varied diet so you don’t have a vitamin deficiency. Ashley: Yes, I’ll have to guard against that. Paul: Are you going to avoid buying things that are animal-derived, too? Like leather shoes and belts? Ashley: I hadn’t thought of that. I suppose I should. Paul: Are you having second thoughts? Ashley: No, I just didn’t know there would be so many restrictions. Paul: Just be glad you didn’t choose to become a fruitarian. Ashley: What’s that? Paul: You don’t want to know. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
