In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Howard Jacobson about changing other people and if that is even possible. It is always a hoot with Howie. This is his fourth appearance on the Plant Trainers Podcast and we always laugh and have fun. For some, change is no laughing matter, and trying to change others is even more serious. I think at the end of the day, our conversation was about the steps you can take to respectfully model and educate the ones we love about a plant-based diet to help them be ready to decide to change on their own. This episode is for anyone who is plant-based and is struggling to have their family members and the ones they love follow suit.
