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.

Inspiring

I love this podcast, I listen to it on my morning commute. It’s informative, fun, and a great way to hear about current vegan topics. I’m so glad they made a season 2 and hope there will be many more. Much love!

ChickPeep rocks!

Season 1 helped me through my transition to becoming a vegan. Now I've been vegan for a year and a half and still hasn't died from lack of protein! I didn't think I would be getting a heart attack either since there are no animal product in my diet, but I almost had one when I found out season 2 of ChickPeeps is back! Really enjoyed the show, getting Earthling Ed on the show is wonderful because it was through his videos that it made me question my morality and actions. I had the priviledge of meeting Ed when I visited the Unity Diner, I didn't think he was gonna be there but there he was sitting across from me while I ate. Shook his hand, took a picture with him, he was as wonderful as I imagined, like seriously one of the highlight for my UK trip was meeting Ed. Anyway keep up the good podcast! I would be tuning in every week! Cant wait for more!
