    Vegan For The… Coronavirus? Ep 221

    In this week's mini episode Paul and Andy are talking about the vegan community's response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. With claims that being vegan makes one immune to the effects of the virus to those saying that if the world was vegan this virus wouldn't be an issue. Some insist that this is the ideal time to advocate for veganism, while others say that it is insensitive to so in the midst of such global suffering. They'll do their best to cut through the chaos and find some answers! A transcript of this episode is available at https://bit.ly/TBVEp221Transcript.

    The Limits Of The Vegan Lens – Ep 219

    The Limits Of The Vegan Lens – Ep 219

    What's up, beardos?! While we, obviously, believe that veganism frames the way we look at the world, in today's mini-episode we ponder if there are occasions where judging things, or people, purely on a binary Vegan YES/NO misses the big picture and prevents us from accomplishing long term gain.

    The Curious Case Of Ethica Global + News Roundup – Ep 218

    This week Paul and Andy bring back the news roundup where they discuss a variety of news stories that have recently caught their interest. Stories include Happy the elephant being denied legal personhood, the new guidelines for employers to comply with the ruling that veganism is a protected characteristic under the Equality Act, the erosion of the United State's oldest ag-gag law, and more. The episode concludes with a lengthy discussion about Ethica Global, a company that touts their ethical vegan roots but was busted buying bacon for their employees. What started out as a simple question about the merits of vegan businesses hiring non-vegan employees turns to an exploration of why this story was reported in the first place. Things may not be as they seem! You can always reach The Bearded Vegans by emailing TheBeardedVegans@gmail.com or visiting TheBeardedVegans.com

    Should We Celebrate Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar Speech? Ep 216

    Should We Celebrate Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar Speech? Ep 216

    This week the bearded duo weigh in on the speech that broke the vegan internet. As Joaquin Phoenix accepted his Academy Award for Best Actor, he remarked upon the commonality of oppression, giving specific examples of the horror of the dairy industry, and eventually turned to introspection on the nature of forgiveness and second chances. It was a ton to pack into a 3.5 minute speech and the internet has a LOT to say about it. Paul and Andy discuss their feelings on the content of the speech before looking more broadly at the Vegan Community's feedgasm, how well non-vegans understood his message, and several pieces that slammed Phoenix for not speaking about other injustices. This is a whopper of an episode as it touches on privilege, earning redemption, using one's platform for good, and much much more!
