    Time is Passing. How Do You Want to Spend It?

    Time is Passing. How Do You Want to Spend It?

    "I wish this hadn't happened in my time." "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." My inspiration for this episode.

    When to Use (and Not Use) the Word Vegan — (REBROADCAST)

    When to Use (and Not Use) the Word Vegan — (REBROADCAST)

    One of my goals has always been to take the word "vegan" out of the box called "vegan." My goal is constantly thwarted by

    *the overuse of the word vegan

    *the use of "vegan" to refer to people as well as food

    *the attempt by some vegans to narrow the definition and make the word "vegan" refer to every social problem that exists in the world

    If you call yourself vegan or have ever been told you can't call yourself vegan, this episode is for you.

Comforting and thought provoking

I love listening to Colleen! At times it feels like we are having a conversation. She brings up excellent points and helps me process through various thoughts I have. Even though I’ve been vegan for nearly 8 years, it is helpful to listen to the things she has to say.

Living an Engaged Life

I am so thankful to have found this podcast. Colleen has committed her life for the animals and shares so much knowledge. And she gives so much information on living life in a real and engaged way! Because of her I am now making my own soy milk and tofu (her class was awesome) and today I will attempt to memorize one of my favorite poems. She lives life in such as engaged way and encourages us all to do the same. Thank you for all you do Colleen!
