Greg, Tom and Liz have a conversation with Dan McKernan, Founder of Barn Sanctuary. Dan dreamed of founding his own farmed animal sanctuary and devoting his life to caring for animals. He achieved his dream and on ACT Radio, Greg, Liz, and Tom talk with Dan, who is also star of the popular Animal Planet series, Saved by the Barn, and author of the children's book, "This Farm Is a Family."

Dan gave up his six-figure, tech industry job in Austin to transform his family’s 140-year-old farm in Michigan into a safe haven for farmed animals. Dan shares how he set out to change the way the world views farmed animals and inspire others to live a compassionate and plant-based lifestyle.
