    Hobbies and Side Hustles

    Hobbies and Side Hustles

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! We're about 2 months overdue with this, but time isn't linear and you know what clock we run on (CPT).

    - Drag 

    - What constitutes as a hobby (in our differing opinions) 

    - Traveling in the midst of a pandemic

    Vegan or not? There is so much noise around pets and whether or not pet ownership is vegan. As usual, we do not provide a clear cut answer to this question because the discussion around companion animals is complex so you'll have to listen to the episode in full to get our opinions on the topic.

    If you liked this episode, remember to share it with a friend or in your social media networks. You can tag us @goatsandoatspodcast on instagram. We can't wait to connect with you and hear your thoughts on this episode. 

    Happy Halloween!

    In this episode Jay and Zipporah discuss the infamous vegan documentary that is earthlings. In doing so, we begin to understand the waywardness that is yt veganism and why many yt folk are influenced to go vegan after watching these kinds of documentaries that so boldly compare the exploitation of non human animals to that of Black and Jewish people during Slavery and the Holocaust respectively.

    If you haven't watched the documentary, we invite you to do so before or after listening to the documentary so that you can more accurately understand and clock the instances of anti-Blackness, colourblindness, and anti-semitism first hand as they may be subtle to those of you who are just beginning to decolonize your veganism.

    Eating Disorders

    TW: throwing up, bulimia and other eating disorders 

    Update since posting this episode: A&W has since released their plant based nuggets. Go ahead and try them out! We also discuss 

    In this episode we discuss the intersections between eating disorders and veganism as two people who have recovered from. 

    We explore the following topics: 

    How a strict whole food plant based diet often promotes orthorexic eating patterns
    How eating plant based in 2021 is a lot different than in 2001 (resources, inspo, alternatives, costs thereof and accessibility thereto)
    How taglines such as “All food is good food” push people to think that if you're not eating the “real thing” you’re doing something wrong in recovery, when in reality plant based foods are just sourced differently, they're not any less authentic or real
    How listening to your hunger cues can be complicated and sometimes impossible when taking ADHD medication for example of while smoking and how those can also be used to restrict
    Tips for going vegan with an eating disorder (anchoring yourself in your why, transitioning slowly, swapping foods instead of cutting them out, and being consistent in the swaps you make)

This podcast has taught me so much!

As a pretty new vegan and someone who wants to do her part in spreading information and speaking on veganism, I have learned so much about things that I myself have overlooked when it comes to research & the vegan community. I have to thank this podcast for opening my eyes and also existing so that I can listen to interesting conversations during my workouts and my walk to work! :) it’s also really nice to listen to conversations that are had in the same vernacular as mine lol. thank you guys so much for your activism and your no-nonsense rants! Love how y’all take it there everytime! Thank you again!

The BEST podcast!

This podcast is incredible and has taught me so much! I always look forward to listening and never finish an episode without bursting out into laughter and learning something new. Zipporah and Jay are the perfect duo and choose the perfect topics to discuss. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I’m OATSESSED (kill me 4 this joke)

Over the last couple months I’ve driven from Albuquerque to New Jersey and then from New Jersey back to Albuquerque and chose to binge listen to this podcast and because I’ve been following zipporah on TikTok for a while and love their content.I’m so glad I chose this podcast to accompany me.Despite the fact that I was driving 65+ combined hours all alone it felt like I was on a road trip with two incredibly knowledgeable and wonderful pals. As a polyamorous pansexual chubby nonbinary vegan it was great to not only be able to hear them talk a lot about issues that affect me and that I care about deeply about but to also hear them talk about true the lens of black vegans, as black vegans are rarely given platforms or spaces to talk about what a veganism based on harm reduction as a result of the white supremacist colonialist capitalist world we live in looks like. I truly hope the future of veganism and liberation movements as a whole is one that lead by people like jay and zipporah. Sorry for the length of this, i just adore this podcast. I’m frantically recommending it to anyone who will listen lol.
