Everyone has a cause that they’re passionate about — and as Ira Glass, host of This American Life on NPR, told David Letterman last night, one woman’s mission inspired him to become vegetarian. That woman, Karen Davis, is the president of United Poulty Concerns — a a nonprofit organization dedicated to the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl. Every year, she organized people to write in to This American Life and complain about their annual “Chicken Poultry Slam” series (a play on Poetry Slam) that would tell stories about eating chickens and turkeys around the holidays.

She urged Glass to come visit her farm and see just how much personalities chickens have. And he did — and became a vegetarian. Check out the great video below of Ira on The David Letterman Show.

Thanks to Sara for the tip!
