Today’s guest is Mr. Josh LaJaunie. In his own words, Josh is a “plant-eating, miles-logging, WHODAT from the Bayou with an appetite for life!” Yes, he ran a TON of miles and has an incredible story to tell, but this conversation really had me thinking a lot about hunting. Josh doesn’t hunt anymore, but it is part of who is he and it will always be tied to great memories. As someone who now doesn’t eat meat of any kind, he is thinking outside the box about how he can communicate to his Bayou brothers and sisters that eating meat is not something that he feels is healthy for them. His ideas on how to engage in that conversation and his thoughts on hunting as it is looked at from the outside world are fascinating, so I welcome you to open your mind and really hear what he has to say. In addition to that, we talked about family and the impact that this plant-based journey had on his family’s dinner table and get togethers. He is a great guy who is full of life and I am excited for you to get to hear from him.
