Greg & Tom talk with Melanie Joy, founder of the Carnism Awareness & Action Network, and author of "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows." Joy talks about carnism - the belief system that leads many of us to eat animals without a second thought to the cruelty and oppression behind the practice. She also explains why victims of carnism aren't just animals, but the people who eat them. Part 1 of a 2-part interview. www.carnism.com
