Show #40 - The Mountain Goats and Brenda Davis
June 20, 2007
Our 40th show! And it's a great one... Derek traveled to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY to document the ZOOP! concert and camping fundraiser featuring seperate live performances by The Mountain Goats' John Darnielle and Peter Hughes as well as traveling companion Perry Wright. Derek recorded a great interview with Darnielle where John talks about his music, his vegetarianism and his fundraising efforts for Farm Sanctuary. And of course we feature some of The Mountain Goat's music!
The second half of the show features an interview with our favorite vegan nutritionist Brenda Davis. We get the low down on the multitudinous aspects of vegan nutrition from one of the most knowledgeable nutritionists in our movement. Brenda also tells us about the amazing results she is seeing in treating diabetes with a plant-based diet in the Marshall Islands where Diabetes has run rampant since the introduction of meat and processed foods.
