    NBSV 073: GiGi Carter and Alissa Nash on the increasing number of Black vegans, and whether veganism should include human rights

    One of the fastest-growing vegan demographics is Black Americans. Alissa Nash and GiGi Carter discuss increasing the number of Black vegans, including quality of life benefits and cultural barriers. We also discuss the scope of expression of veganism's compassion (whether - and how - it should extend to human rights), and contributions ethnic cuisines have made to veganism. We acknowledge systemic and economic barriers faced by many, and focus on issues that are controlled on an individual level.

    NBSV 070: Why vegans shouldn't support PETA, and how to assess whether an animal sanctuary is legit

    PETA is the world’s largest and most recognized animal rights organization. I feel they send the wrong message about animal rights, and give all of us vegans a bad name. I share 5 problems with PETA, and 5 ways it exhibits appalling prejudice toward certain groups of people. I suggest supporting local and smaller-scale organizations instead. Many of these are animal sanctuaries rather than broader animal rights organizations, so I share 6 questions to ask when assessing whether a sanctuary is ethically ru

Ren Jones Episode

I almost skipped this episode because I was specifically looking for episodes focused on veganism. This episode was so great and right on the money (pun intended,
Compound interest). It was so energizing. I gave up running for my 40th birthday last year and now I walk 2-4 miles every afternoon in addition to strength training in the morning. I never looked forward to my afternoon run because it was hard and made my legs hurt. I always look forward to my afternoon walks. They allow me to reflect on my day and listen to podcast that educate and feed me. I’m also getting better results! Glad I found this! Thank you!

5 months a vegan never looking back...

I was very happy to find this podcast. Podcasts are the perfect motivation for continuing this lifestyle change. I have been telling my family and friends that a vegan lifestyle is easy to maintain because there are multiple motivating factors. Health, environment, compassion for living things and the food tastes amazing! This podcast resonated with me when Karina and her guest were discussing this multi-motivational approach. Every other fad diet or lifestyle change uses only one motivation-that’s why they fail. I cant believe it took me 42 years to make this change, but I’m so happy I did! Thank you for promoting this lifestyle Karina!
