In this episode Brandon is interviewed by Steve and Joseph of The Working Title podcast.

Other discussions include: how technology has left the domestic scale behind (dulling the edge of human nature in the process); factory farming vs. veganism; the butcher's duty to kill well; the cost of our existence; and what a random morning in Brandon's life looks like.
