Controversial "shock jock" Tom Leykis has been on the air for decades and made his fair share of enemies with his polarizing views on women and relationships.

But nobody is one-dimensional, and in her effort to get to the bottom of why Tom is the way he is, Rachel discovered a charming man who makes his own wine, loves to experiment in the kitchen, and refuses to buy meat from a grocery store.

On that note, we talk to Tom's butcher Lou DeRosa of Marconda's Meats, the oldest standing meat market in Los Angeles - where 3 generations of DeRosa butchers have been working since 1941.

Actor, animal rights activist, author, and the reason everybody was running around in 1995 saying "As if!" Alicia Silverstone joins Rachel on this episode of YLM!

The "Clueless" star admits that although she's been vegan since 1998, she's most tempted by a delicious cheese, so we talk to Youssef Fakhouri, owner of Alicia's (and LA's) favorite vegan cheese shop Vromage.

And remember that 2012 video of Alicia feeding her child like a baby bird? It caused quite the stir, so Rachel gets to the bottom of "premastication" with Melanie Martin, post-doctoral associate at Yale University in the field of Biological Anthropology.

Check out Alicia's books at thekindlife.com. And order Youssef's "cheeses" to try yourself at vromage.com.
