003 There's Beauty In The Darkness
In episode three I talk with Stewart a.k.a Vigilante Vegan. Stewart is a human and animal rights activist based in New York. He is a writer, poet and published author of three books (Kayla the Vegan, Liberation Summer & There's Beauty In The Darkness). In this episode we discuss what role art plays in our lives, how young people can teach compassion, veganism, the experience of being Black and working class in Brooklyn and the parallels between human and nonhuman oppression. Stewart gets vulnerable as he shares his thoughts and feelings on depression, healthcare, masculinity and struggling with mental health as a parent.
Stewart, thank you so much for your honesty and vulnerability. This is a really beautiful episode.

Phoebe aims to spread love for all beings throughout all that she does, whilst working on herself and evolving to be her best, kindest, truest, unapologetic self.
