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.
