    Megadeth Drummer Dirk Verbeuren on the Link Between Metal and Veganism
    Welcome back to another episode of the Plant Based News podcast! In this episode, we spoke to metal drummer Dirk Verbeuren. Dirk joined Megadeth, one of the world’s biggest thrash metal bands, in 2016. Dirk has always been an animal lover, but - like many people - he previously didn’t realize what was happening to animals in our food system. His wife Hannah opened his eyes to animal agriculture back in 2005, prompting him to ditch meat and go vegetarian. He went vegan eight years ago after learning more about how animals are being treated for food. We sat down with Dirk to discuss the link between veganism and metal music, the animal causes close to his heart, the importance of using his social following to stand up for animals, and much more. Dirk's story is a testament to the power of personal change, informed by love for animals and a quest for a more compassionate lifestyle.
