About This Show
The ChickPeeps is your friendly, fun, mad-curious vegan podcast. Join us as we explore, discuss and unpick the dilemmas faced by vegans in our quest to be more compassionate towards animals.
How do I be vegan? Should I be ok with my partner calling me 'honey' or is that mindless tolerance of an industry built on slave labour? Do I even like bees? Will the vegan gods flay me alive for the brief but profoundly sadistic period in my youth, when I amused myself by pouring sea salt onto defenseless slugs? Must I hold monthly vigils for the deceased slugs? Will I ever be vegan enough?!
Perhaps these are some of the difficult questions that plague you as a new vegan, as you wait for vegan-Jesus to descend and press Ye Olde Book of Veganism into your outstretched hands. However, there is no vegan Jesus (we have Moby, though), no sacred text and no perfect or definitive way to go or stay vegan and you will have to answer those questions for yourself.
Enter The ChickPeeps, the new plant-fueled pod to accompany and empower your vegan journey. Join our host, actress Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter), and her co-hosts Momoko Hill, Robbie Jarvis and Tylor Starr as they discuss their philosophies, challenges and opinions on living the vegan lifestyle, and listen in as we turn the mic on some of the Animal Rights community's most inspiring and seasoned activists and try to decipher the best ways of living that is kind to animals, ourselves and Mother Nature.Read more »

For the second part of our discussion on vegan athletes, The ChickPeeps chat to Brian Rose, the founder and host of London Real, who recently went plant-based when challenged by his friend, musician and triathlete, John Joseph, to compete in a half Ironman and do it vegan. Brian offers a unique perspective on going vegan as somebody able to observe the changes that occurred within his body and mind in a short space of time, and who’s primary motivator in trying veganism were the health benefits. Also on this episode: Brian shares how the many vegan guests he interviews on his weekly show piqued his curiosity about the lifestyle. “People don’t do what you say, they do what you do.” Brian talks about how he had to increase his food intake when he went plant-based to keep up with the demands of his training. The changes Brian witnessed in his mind and body, and how green vegetables played a crucial part in his training regime. We discuss why many athletic coaches are vehemently against their athletes following a vegan diet. Brian gives his 3 top tips for new vegans. “If it hurts, don’t eat that.” Fear = False Expectations Appearing Real. How going vegan prompts a shift in one’s thought process and a different outlook on life. "If you look at the world in 50 years, I mean it’s a no-brainer to me, that we will all be eating more plant based, it’s just gonna be what does that look like?” Links Follow Brian and London Real on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
