Episode details

It's 2022, do you know where your meat comes from? Probably not. Dishonest labeling, loopholes, and misleading claims about sustainability and health sell people lies about the meat they buy. We are sold meat claiming to be all-American and antibiotic-free that is anything but. Moreover, we are told meat is unhealthy and bad for the environment, in an attempt to sell processed "plant-based" or lab-grown "meat" products that are neither healthy nor ethical.

Benjamin Spell is the Founder and CEO of Good Ranchers, a company that delivers high quality meat, sourced ethically from American farmers, that is actually antibiotic and hormone-free, to Americans. I spoke with him about what the meat industry isn't telling you, where your "American" meat actually comes from, the harms of fake meat, and how you can choose ethical meat and support American farmers.
