Food for Thought: The Joys and Benefits of Living Compassionately and Healthfully (In Other Words: Vegan)
About This Show
Celebrating a way of life that encompasses compassion for everyone and emphasizing the fact that being vegan is a means rather than an end in itself, the Food for Thought podcast addresses all aspects of eating and living compassionately and healthfully. Each episode addresses commonly asked questions about being vegan, including those regarding food, cooking, nutrition, ethics, animals, family dynamics, food politics, and social psychology, and it debunks the myths surrounding these issues. Drawing upon language, etymology, history, ethics, poetry, short stories, and other forms of literature, this is a unique podcast that leaves listeners feeling inspired and informed.
