As I come up to my 40th birthday, I thought it would be good to look back on the 26 episodes of the Do a Day Podcast and hit on the amazing guests I’ve had, some of the key messages they’ve shared, and talk about one Vegan day, my effort to use my 40th to help people try being Vegan for one day. It’s a way to use my milestone as a catalyst for others to have a milestone in their lives for their health and the health of the planet. Or just a way for everyone to prove to themselves that they can do anything for a day (obviously, that’s a key part of the Do a Day message)!
And it’s a great chance to give another special shout out to Wes Yee for the great music he created just for this show. Wes does amazing work, if you’re ever looking for a producer. Plus he’s a cool guy.
