PBN Co-founder Robbie Lockie appeared on the Plant Proof podcast this week.
The activist, visionary, and entrepreneur sat down with host Simon Hill to discuss Plant Based News, his story, and how and why he became vegan.
In sharing Lockie's personal story, the pair discuss his move from Zimbabwe to London, the birth of his passion for digital media, and how he came to veganism and his work with Plant Based News.
While Lockie first discovered plant-based living through his quest for better health, he also delves into ethics and compassion - and the breakthrough that led him to become a full-blown ethical vegan.
Hill and Lockie also delve into the origin of, and future plans for, Plant Based News.
Lockie shares how Plant Based News grew from YouTube channel to a multi-platform business, the role of vegan prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal, and his vision for the future of vegan media.
