Ellen Ericksen is a known animal rights activist here in San Diego. She's also been on the podcast a few times already to discuss Sea World as well as Del Mar racetrack (Episodes 88 and 94).

With horse racing season coming up (7/17/2019), Ellen returns to the podcast to expose some of the details behind the $100 BILLION dollar industry, including the underground horse slaughter and horse-meat trade that's happening right in our own backyards!
