Note: It was announced that Hope Botanic, author of The Ultimate Betrayal: Is There Happy Meat? would also appear. She had a time zone mixup and was not on today’s show. We’re working to get her rescheduled and will let you know on our “Events” page on this site and on social media when that happens.
