    • Society & Culture

Mariann and Jasmin explore the epiphanies they are having in these isolated times, and why they are trying to avoid using Amazon. We also continue our Supporting Vegan Businesses program by shouting out Brewing Good Coffee Company, PNT BSD, Just Veggiez, and Lavva Yogurt. Jasmin interviews artist and psychologist Linda Brant about her recent project, Monument To Animals We Do Not Mourn. She talks about the creation of the project and some of the beautiful symbolism she incorporated into it. Jasmin and Linda also discuss the role of art in activism, and Linda talks about the odd process of collecting and cleaning animals bones--and how that act led to her becoming vegan! (24:00) Mariann interviews Clare Mann, vegan psychologist and author of the new book Myths of Choice, who explains to us her theory of "life myths" and how these unquestioned assumptions affect people's choices. What are the myths that people carry, and how do these myths keep people from making changes like becoming vegan? Clare tells us about existential psychology and how we can take control over our lives and choices. (1:09:00) Mariann brings us Rising Anxieties about factory farms and meat shortages. (56:30)
