Kam Waters, co-creator of the documentary film soon to be released, Christspiracy, sits down with Tony Jones from The Reverend Hunter Podcast to debate if Jesus was actually a vegan. The Film “Christspiracy” documents Kam’s personal quest, as a lover of Christ, across the globe to answer the question “is there a spiritual way to kill an animal?” interviewing theologians, archeologists, Christian farmers and more. Kam grew up in the Bible Belt, was born and raised in the Christian church, and began questioning his traditions’ position on animal ethics when he realized there was more to the story than he had been told. Tony Jones is a writer, theologian, outdoorsman, and passionate hunter who believes the lack of people currently killing and butchering their own animals for food “is one of the most primal aspects of religion that has been lost.” He’s written many books including his latest “The God of Wild Places: Rediscovering the Divine in the Untamed Outdoors.” He teaches at Fuller Theological Seminary and lives in Minnesota with his wife, kids, and dog. Both of these men are passionate about their cause.  Kam and the Christspiracy team are shaking up the common narrative, but Tony comes in sharing where he thinks they go wrong. Did God put animals on this earth for us to eat and use how we see fit? What does “dominion over the animals” really mean? And what does it mean on a broader scale if Jesus really did advocate for compassion for animals? Or is eating animals without boundaries, a God - given right that is good?

Today, we delve into the heart of parenting exploring two diverse parenting philosophies amidst what can be a contentious and emotional topic.

Arden Young, is an undercover investigative journalist from Sound Investigations. Her undercover work exposes PornHub executives admitting that they knowingly profit off of the sexual exploitation of minors AND that they knowingly allow content of rape and sexual abuse content on their site because of an ID loophole. Benjamin Nolot is the CEO and founder of Exodus Cry, a non profit that fights sex trafficking, and all forms of commercial sexual exploitation. He is committed to shifting cultural mindsets and laws that protect children from porn exposure and abolishes commercial sexual exploitation. He has been a featured speaker at the United Nations and is an award-winning filmmaker. Benjamin’s book Raised on Porn is a must read. In this conversation they expose the heart of today’s destructive porn industry, the human trafficking and sexual abuse content inevitably intertwined within it, and how porn is currently shaping an entire generation of young people. We cover the addictive nature of porn and how it is affecting our relationships in real life, what’s different about porn today versus when our grandparents were young, how children younger and younger are first getting access to porn, why PornHub execs should be in prison, and so much more.

Few topics are more hotly debated than nutrition. With contradictory messaging abundant, it can be difficult to discern credible health advice and navigate which dietary patterns are optimal for our health and longevity.  Simon Hill, nutritionist and host of The Proof Podcast, cuts through the noise and breaks down today’s most popular diets and trends. Simon has a healthy obsession with nutritional science and uses reliable science-based information to form his dietary thesis philosophy. He focuses on nuanced, evidence-based research instead of biased black and white thinking. While science is not perfect, we do have clear biomarkers for longevity and preventing our #1 killers, and this episode goes into how these trends stack up against those markers. With so many experts letting their biases get in the way to form nutritional recommendations, Simon is the nutrition resource we need right now. In this episode we cover:  Popular diets: Paleo, Carnivore, Vegan, Keto, Plant Paradox, & Nourishing Traditions What “ancestral diets” get right and wrong Saturated fat vs. PUFAS Popular Trends: Butter, Bone Broth, anti-nutrients, seed oils, etc Eating to survive vs. eating for longevity  Why what’s “natural” isn’t necessarily what’s best for long term health Simon's resources in YouTube description box HERE Sponsor: Anima Mundi Herbals | enter the code ELLEN20 for 20% off everything at WHERE TO FIND SIMON Website Instagram Podcast Youtube WHERE TO FIND ME Birth Course Recipe ebooks Instagram Watch the Podcast
In this fiery conversation with my husband and friends Amelia and Matt, we discuss and debate the meaning and value of sex, marriage, and monogamous vs. polyamorous relationships.  Amelia and Matt recently celebrated their love in a non traditional marriage ceremony after dating for 5 years. They practice consensual non monogamy and value freedom, self expression and evolution as the foundation of their relationship. They share polar opposite life experiences to me and my husband Andrew, who have only ever been with each other intimately and waited until we were married to have sex. We’ve been together for over 20 years, started dating when we were 15 and 16 years old and our marriage vows are based in a life long commitment of growth and unconditional love, through the easy times and the hard times. We get into our differing perspectives on love and if having multiple sexual partners (either at the same time or throughout our lives) is best for society, raising children, and ourselves as individuals.  Sponsors: Branch Basics | Get 15% off all Starter Kits (except the Trial Kit) ⁠⁠ Anima Mundi Herbals: enter the code ELLEN20 for 20% off everything at We discuss topics such as: problems within monogamy vs polyamory for relationships, children, and society  The purpose and meaning of sex - is it sacred, solely for pleasure, etc?

I sit down with Dr. Klaper, an internationally recognized teacher, speaker, and gifted medical practitioner who’s been helping patients reverse chronic illness with plant-based nutrition and integrative medicine for the last 40 years. In this episode we hone in on optimal nutrition to prevent America’s biggest killers - heart disease and diet-related cancers.  We know that dietary patterns are a key component to preventing and even reversing many common diseases that are prevalent here in the US. Yet this education is still rarely taught to our medical students, emphasized in the medical course curriculum, or even discussed in the general population.

The topic of how to feed upwards of 10 billion people with the least amount of deforestation and pollution is complex and layered. There’s clearly big issues within the standard industrial farming system, and in this conversation four guests get into what they believe is the best way to farm to feed the world, both on a small and large scale.  Speaking for the regenerative ranching positition is Will Harris and Jason Rowntree.  Will is a fourth-generation cattleman, who tends the same land that his great-grandfather settled in 1866.

Will has been recognized all over the world as a leader in environmental sustainability and is the Beef Director of the American Grassfed Association.  Jason RownTree is a professor of Animal Science at Michigan State University where he holds the Charles Stewart Mott Distinguished Professorship for Sustainable Agriculture. Rowntree’s research focuses on identifying the metrics and management that reflect ecological improvement in grazing land and other agricultural systems.  Speaking for the regenerative plant agriculture position is Nicholas Carter and Jimmy Videle. Nicholas is an ecologist and co-founder of, a library of peer-reviewed articles and summaries on the evidence to shift to plant-based diets. His thesis focused on the global estimates of greenhouse gas emissions attributed to animal agriculture, and has since written reports and articles on biodiversity loss and food systems.  Jimmy Videle is a professional farmer, activist, consultant and researcher. He lives on a small-scale veganic farm in Québec and has been growing his own food and homesteading for over twenty-five years, with experience on eleven organic and permaculture farms around the world. This episode covers: What the best type of agriculture is to feed the world without destroying the planet The differences between regenerative ranching vs regenerative plant agriculture What they improve on the environmental metrics and if it is scalable Regulation and accountability (or lack of) within the regenerative label Soil issues, what causes it and how do we fix it? Is buying local food a way to reduce your environmental footprint? Is there enough land in the US, or globally, to support meat demands if we switched to grass fed/finished beef? If it’s unrealistic to expect people to reduce their meat and dairy intake Where most methane comes from and If there is such a thing as carbon negative beef Allan Savory and his claim that holistic grazing can reverse climate change  Sponsors: Branch Basics | Get 15% off all Starter Kits (except the Trial Kit) SafeSleeve | Get 10% off your order with code ELLEN10 Anima Mundi Herbals | enter the code ELLEN20 for 20% off See Nicholas' timestamped references here WHERE TO FIND WILL HARRIS Instagram WHERE TO FIND NICHOLAS CARTER Instagram WHERE TO FIND JIMMY VIDELE YouTube WHERE TO FIND ME ⁠My birth course⁠ ⁠My ebooks⁠ ⁠Instagram⁠ ⁠Watch the podcast

How often do you find yourself going through the motions of life without patience or living in the present moment? Hurried busyness is so common in our modern lives that it’s become the norm. Even if you have never meditated regularly, you likely know the feeling of being in flow — that pure state of presence and calm, which can often feel so unattainable in a culture that constantly presses us to outdo yesterday’s productivity. Thankfully, meditation has been having a zeitgeist moment. More people than ever are familiar with the concept of mindfulness, and nowadays those who are dabbling in meditation don’t always fit the stereotype. It seems the deeper and deeper enmeshment of technology in our lives has also brought greater accessibility to meditation teachers, especially for those of us who need more guidance in a practice that feels so foreign. One of these meditation teachers and thought leaders is Manoj Diaz, a speaker and meditation teacher who was born in Sri Lanka and later raised in Australia. In this episode Manoj gives us simple steps to start a mindfulness practice with meditation and breath work. While starting meditation and breath work may feel daunting, it doesn’t have to be. This conversation aims to demystify meditation, show you how to quiet your mind, and inspire you to open up and slow down. this episode covers: How to start a meditation practice and the reasons why The benefits of breath work How to be more present and connected in your life Cultivating a disciplined mind Why it can be hard to quiet our mind How just 5 minutes of meditation a day can change your life Thank you to our partners for sponsoring today’s episode Anima Mundi: enter the code ELLEN20 for 20% off everything at Indigo Luna: my favorite lounge wear and yoga clothes. enter the code ELLENLOVE for 10% off your order HERE WHERE TO FIND MANOJ instagram Website Open app WHERE TO FIND ME My birth course My ebooks Instagram Watch the podcast

Ellen Fisher has a record of spreading misinformation on vaccines so is a poor judge of Dr Malone's claims. When I heard about Dr. Malone's career I was initially hopeful that she was going to talk to someone who challenges her views. Instead it appears she's cherry picked the one expert who agrees with her. Yes Dr. Malone is credentialed in the correct field to talk about this topic however there are many other scientists just as qualified who have come to the opposite conclusion. It's a great thing that we have many scientists in many fields of research. Unfortunately this also raises the odds that a small percentage will come to inaccurate conclusions and some may find a media career talking to the public about their unsubstantiated views. I find it telling that Dr. Malone has started speaking at anti-vaccine rallies and doing podcasts with people like Ellen Fisher and Joe Rogan who have a reputation for previously spreading misinformation. If I wanted my unorthodox scientific views

My favorite question was about pushing your religious beliefs on your children and I couldn't agree more. I really hoped she might go into how this might relate with veganism. My children have been vegan their entire lives but my parents are often giving me a hard time for telling my child something like "that has animal products in it so we don't buy it, if you'd like we can find a vegan option or make a vegan version at home." They say I'm forcing veganism on my children, would love to know your thoughts, Ellen, or Dr. Shefali's thoughts.

Awesome conversation. It was always about the mass vaccination program. Everything is Covid now. A teen going to the hospital with adominal pain and fever. Tested positive for covid and sent home. goes back the next day and turns out his appendix burst, but he was misdiagnosed. Crimes against humanity!
