Love this podcast

This podcast is real and not scripted. This is a combination of so many topics. You won’t get board listening to all the various show topics.

I keep subscribing and unsubscribing from this podcast. Now, I did come to this late, as in 2020, and when I find a new (to me podcast) I like to start from the beginning. So some of this information is already very dated. I used to not mind banter in a podcast, and now the more I hear on different podcasts, the more irritating it becomes (this is particularly true in true crime, which this podcast is not, and I get that.) The thing is, I don't know any of the people who banter in the podcasts. Sometimes I might be FB friends with one or two, but we have no actual real no connection. And when a podcast episode drags on for an hour and a half, with half of that being personal stuff, I'm not sure, how should I say, that I care all that much? I'm a longtime vegan who was vegetarian for a long time before that, and so a lot of the information here isn't really new to me. I don't care about the NYC social or vegan scenes; I don't live there anymore. And I am really really not a fan of greenwashed vegan products, so I tend to cringe when they gush about Daiya or some other brand that has sold out to vivisectors. That said, and I'm only up to 2014 in terms of podcasts, the episodes where they interview other activists tend to be really really good. I loved hearing Donny Moss and the issue of the carriage horses (which, all this time later, is still a thing). I loved the first Thanksgiving episode where they interviewed 3 vegans (except I am not a fan of Colleen Patrick-Goudreau; I don't think she's updated with the times in terms of conjoining justice movements). The food reviews I can do without. I am just not into hearing about vegan food. I like the activist stuff. So I've downloaded a few new episodes and we'll see how they go -- whether I keep on with this or give it up once and for all.

Surprisingly... PROFOUND! 😲👍

Just listened to ep: 109 Ex-Ex-Vegans, Pt 1.

I’ve never learned SO MUCH from ONE podcast!
* Racial/Cultural/Class/Body-Image Discrimination - in Vegan/Animal Activist Communities & Work Places!
* PTSD/Mental Health’s influence on a person’s Vegan/Activist/Sexual - Identity and Social Interactions/Relationships!
* The [no but really!] Importance of Educating yourself on The Vegan Diet/Lifestyle ESPECIALLY for Women! #Iron 💡
* [Mis-]Educational/Societal/Familial Peer Pressures and Influences on vegan-identifying individuals who are otherwise isolated from the community.
* Oh, and I even learned about Gender Diversity in Drag-Queen Culture! 👍

All from Pt1 of a Interview-Centric type episode of an all around entertaining, educational and just FUN podcast encapsulated in its very wise, talented and open-hearted/minded host Ms. Honey LaBronx (Ben Strothmann).

To sum up; I Highly Recommend this podcast and encourage support for it, and the many endeavors of its lovely host.
😊👍
