When I discovered the ‘Yoga is Dead’ Podcast, I deliberately left the episode titled ‘Vegans Killed Yoga’ until last, because I didn’t want to be put off listening to the advice and experiences shared by Jesal and Tejal, because of my own strong beliefs about animal exploitation. I was determined to be open-minded and to hear why ‘Vegans Killed Yoga.’
It was a hard listen and I did have to do it in parts, because I will admit it frustrated me. Not on behalf of the vegans (we are not victims), but on behalf of the animals. I wish to outline here why I think this episode missed the mark.
