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.

Lockie’s story

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.
