The V Word- What's It All About? *Bonus Five Minutes*

Hello again,  After we recorded our full episode we were chatting about specific stats, facts and figures relating to animal slaughter and cruelty with Evelyn. We turned on the mic to capture this for anyone who is interested in knowing more. It is not for the fainthearted but it is important information. We have also included separate show notes below to aid with any further research you wish to do!
