When you think about someone using their business for good, you don’t usually think of a rock star. And when you think of a rock star, you might think hedonistic living and self-aggrandizement.

Well, despite the fact that Moby has sold more than 20 million records worldwide and is so famous in fact that he only goes by one name, his life is driven toward one primary purpose: to alleviate suffering on the planet.

He’s tried to do this not only by using his albums to promote compassion for animals, but also by opening an all-vegan restaurant in LA, Little Pine. And in this episode, we talk with him about all of that, and a lot more.

So sit back and enjoy hearing about Moby’s philosophy on life, his trials and tribulations, and his efforts to use the power of his various businesses to make the world a better place.
