About the Moderator
Drew Kincius (KIN - CHUS) is a self-described optimistic realist. Two years ago he switched from being a giant meat head, consuming pounds of animals each week, to a full-fledged vegan, chugging kale, hummus, and tempeh with reckless abandonment. The catalyst for this switch? A little film called Forks Over Knives.
