Eating animal products, aside from being horribly polluting and terribly cruel, is shamefully inefficient. Thankfully, we can do better thanks to technology today, and the future looks bright.

I was thrilled to interview Karthik Sekar, Ph.D., a data analyst in the “alt-meat” industry and author of the book “After Meat: The Case for an Amazing, Meat-free Future.” He clearly explains what makes animals a technology of the past, how we can do better, and what it means for human nutrition. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did! (Audio via the Vegan Family Kitchen Podcast is available below the video.)

You can get his book from all online book retailers including Smashwords. For more information, visit the book’s website: You can also connect with Karthik on Twitter.
