Our 49th episode Scott calls in on Skype from his vacation to give a report on the state of veganism in the U.K. Derek debuts his Dennis Kucinich Mix just in time for the primaries in New Hampshire. Will it help swing the vote?
Our 48th show features an interview with Liz Holtz, co-founder of vegan cookie-maker Liz Lovely. Our own vegan baker Megan Shackelford talks shop with Liz about just what it is that makes their vegan cookies so freakin good. We feature a listener-submitted clip of a talk that Mark Mathew Braunstein gave at the NorthEastern Connecticut Vegetarian Society in June called "Why and How to Wean from Cow: Milk's Utter Truth and Udder Nonsense".
This year our regularly scheduled show falls on Thanksgiving, and we take the opportunity to get the animal rights message out while the blood is pooling on the counters of US citizens celebrating the genocide of Native Americans. First we talk about Peta's investigation into Butterball's House of Horrors.
On Vegan Radio 46 we are vexed by Hollywood vegans who use mainstream media-influenced ideas of female sexuality to bring the vegan message to the mesmerized masses. We talk to Sunny Subramanian from the Vegan Vixens, a group of five "sexy, trendy and fun loving women whose goal is to inspire men to live a longer and happier life". We also interview Rory Friedman, co-author of the NY Times bestseller Skinny Bitch.
For our 45th episode we sneak into the studio on an off week, dragging along two of the members of Shokazoba, our local Afrobeat Battalion. Singer Hodges is a vegan anarchist running for "Vegan of the Year" (in Northampton, MA). Wendell Rheinheimer is one of the band's guitarists and also the veggie oil mechanic for The Vegan Bus. We talk about Afrobeat, politics and conspiracy theories, among other sordid things.
When last we met Vegan Radio co-hosts Derek, Megan and Scott, they were about to embark on a journey aboard The Vegan Bus to bring engaged veganism across the country to Burning Man. On today's show they bring three of the five other Vegan Bus travelers into the studio for a recounting of the trip.
Vegan Radio co-hosts Megan, Derek and Scott are getting geared up to go to the Burning Man Festival at the end of August, and this show is dedicated to the spirit of Burning Man. We have an interview with Raquy from Raquy and the Cavemen which was recorded at the Starwood Music Festival.
