Our 80th show features Beloved Binge on tour and in the studio with us for an interview and further shenanigans. The Binge are one of our favorite bands, and great vegan activists to boot. They created a documentary called Seeing Through the Fence that "explores the role of food in modern society and our connection, or lack of connection, with both the processes and animals from which our food originates". They also hand out Vegan Outreach literature at college campuses in the towns they play at.

During the second half of our show we interview Gary Lowenthal from The Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale, a global fund raising event put on by local groups around the world. Gary tells us how this great idea got off the ground and now involves dozens of groups and locations around the world. Each participating group gets to choose its venue, what to sell, and how it uses the proceeds. A great show that will leave you jonesin' for vegan cupcakes.
