Let’s start with one of the happiest places on earth: a beautiful sanctuary for formerly farmed animals! In our Seasonal Sanctuary Stroll, we are featuring for spring 2016 the idyllic Poplar Spring Sanctuary, Poolesville, Maryland, a leisurely drive from Washington, DC, and speaking with Poplar Spring’s co-founder and co-director Terry Cummings. She tells the story of an incredible little pig who fought for his life and is having a lovely one at Poplar Spring.

Blast from the past: If you enjoyed August McLaughlin’s take on enlightened sexuality, check out this episode featuring Drs. Brian Clement and Anna Maria Clement, of Hippocrates Health Institute, discussing their book, 7 Keys to Lifelong Sexual Vitality



  1. This is a practical and particularly thoughtful discussion on healthy sexuality. Indeed, August McLaughlin brings a fresh perspective to sexuality–mindful and compassionate–so akin to the vegan lifestyle. I really enjoyed the podcast. Thank you!
