Wayne Hsiung was released on December 9, 2023 after serving a sentence of 38 days in a Sonoma County (Calif.) jail for trying to free animals from the cruelty of factory farms. I talked to Wayne as he prepared for the trial earlier in the year. He was optimistic, considering he had just beaten the attempts in Utah to convict him on similar charges. As we recount 2023, we reprise my conversation with Wayne in this encore podcast presentation.

Read about Hsiung's Sonoma Country conviction on his Substack blog, The Simple Heart.
