Our 27th show happened to fall on the least vegan holiday of the year, Thanksgiving. We could have taken the day off but instead used this opportunity to reach the people who were home listening to the radio while they cooked dead birds to poison their families with. They may have changed the channel, but they couldn't escape the radio waves that were passing through their kitchens and into their subconscious minds!

In this show we feature interviews from the 2006 Boston Vegetarian Food Festival. As many of you know, there is a great debate forming in the animal rights movement over wether we should back companies and laws that are supposedly making animal agriculture more humane, or wether we should be abolitionists who do not accept any form of animal enslavement, rape, torture and murder. We have interviews with Satya Magazine who recently dedicated two issues to this very subject. We also interview Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero about Post-Punk Kitchen and their cookbooks Vegan with a Vengeance and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Dr. Michael Greger, MD. tells us about the bird flu and his new book Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching. We also have the Little Vegan Monsters, Boston activist Homefries, The new vegan cheese, Cheezly, Herbivore Clothing, Tamar Portafino, NEAVS (New England Anti-Vivisection Society), Lush, and much more! To top it off we have a phone interview with Megan's high school friend's 80 year old grandfather, Joe Esposito. Joe has overcome heart problems and lives a pharmaceutical-free lifestyle thanks to his nearly-vegan diet.
