Your favourite vegan hippie meathead Sam Shorkey (first-ever VEGAN World Naturals bikini pro and coach to the winner of Bodybuilding.com's 2015 $200,000 12-Week Transformation Challenge) is proud to present "Jacked on the Beanstalk: The Podcast." Together with her sister Sarah, they're on a mission to not only promote and discuss the benefits of following a plant-based diet and lifestyle, but teach others how to live with purpose and without regret. To unlock and share the mysteries of a healthy mind, body and spirit.
Here in Podcast Land, the Shorkey sisters are showcasing how strength starts on the inside. And as much as they are passionate about vegan health and fitness, they're using this platform to really focus on personal growth and helping others to develop healthy relationships with food and their bodies. All the while, sprinkling each and every episode with that smart-assed, annoyingly vegan and brutally honest Shorkey charm we've all grown to love. (And hopefully provide a few helpful secrets and tools along the way.) As we always say at Jacked on the Beanstalk "mind right and the body will follow." Now let's get this "meatless meathead / holistic hippie" wellness party started!
#85: Steroid Stink and the Carnivore Diet
Oh how I hope that none of the guys I've dated in the past listen to my podcast! Nevertheless, on this episode, we are diving into bodily smells yet again! But more specifically, why I always seem to detect this strong, pungent odour emitting from some of the steroid using, meat-loving guys I meet. I have always held this theory that it was some kind of predator vs. prey pheromones-type reaction going on. Perhaps my vegan body's way of saying "they are not a match for you." Whatever it was, I knew I had to research. And of course, share my findings with my beloved podcast listeners. Enjoy!
#84: "New to Vegan Bodybuilding" Listener Questions Answered
This episode comes to you via one of our very own podcast listeners who recently turned vegan and is never looking back! Yes, apparently our new listener Jack was just so damn inspired by our podcast that it turned him vegan! And in doing so, he actually had a lot of great questions for us that we thought we'd turn into a whole damn episode. So today, we're covering everything from fake vegan meats to the best and worst fast food options for vegan bodybuilders. Plus we're sharing our thoughts on whether vegans get sick less often than meat eaters. And finally, is it better to train with higher reps and lighter weights or heavier weight with lower reps? Enjoy!
#83: The Vabbing Experiment
Vabbing: The weird and gross TikTok trend where women literally take their vaginal discharge and place it behind their ears or perhaps on their neck and wrists (much like they would a perfume.) Apparently this attracts more male attention. Who the hell is actually doing this though? And WTF is wrong with people?! Naturally, I (Sam) had to try it for myself and see if there was any validity to it whatsoever. And I bet you Jacked on the Beanstalk podcast listeners can't wait to find out how my "vabbing experiment" went.
#82: The Importance of Knowing your Body Composition Metrics
It's no surprise that I love to nerd out on numbers when it comes to my health and fitness. Tracking my calories and macros is of course, something I've done for years already. But only recently have I become fascinated with tracking my body composition metrics. I'm talking how much fat weight I have vs. muscle mass, bone density and water floating around inside my hot vegan bod! It's really fascinating stuff not to mention an absolute game changer when it comes to making progress with my training and nutrition efforts. And today, I'm sharing why I think these metrics are so damn important for all of us to know right here on the podcast. Enjoy!
#81: Interview with Vegan Professional Dominatrix Estelle Sinclair
Just in time for Valentine's Day, I am bringing you a very sexxxy and oh-so-taboo interview with one of my very own JOTB vegan clients: Professional Dominatrix Estelle Sinclair! Yes, we are diving into ALL the topics on this spicy episode! From farting fetishes and blindfolding to promoting veganism via sexual domination, we are learning ALL the tips from this alpha female. Just don't let your kids listen to this one!
#80: Hunting Season Hoopla!
November is deer hunting season here in Ontario, Canada. And the very reason why I (Sam) stopped eating animals at eight-years-old. Yes, it's an incredibly depressing time of year for me because of my personal connection to the beautiful deer that live out here. So naturally, I've been trolling hunters all month long via the local facebook groups! Which then led to a random chat with Sarah that we decided last minute to record. So this podcast episode is a short one but you vegans will no doubt appreciate it. Enjoy!
Love your guy’s show! Sam, you keep referring yourself to as a “Meat Head” but since you’re vegan you should call yourself a “Veg Head”!
I love this podcast!! So much great information on here, and they are freaking hilarious! ❤️
Hilarious, informative and natural!
Just listened to this podcast for the first time and I laughed out loud at least 5 times. Never thought calculating macros and discussing body types could be this entertaining. Glad I’ve subscribed to this!
