MVR Episode 37: Uncle Sam Goes VEGAN
Ever wondered about what it might be like to go vegan in Korea while serving in the air force? We didn’t before we met Emily and heard about her husband, Tom, who did just that. Emily and Tom join us and share their amazing story about going vegan and their experience navigating veganism as they navigate living in a variety of cities and countries across the globe. Emily and Tom share their stories of learning about issues surrounding health, the environment, and what animals endure and what it was like for each of them to make the switch to vegan in their own way in their own time and how they made that work as a couple. Emily also shares about the challenges of finding a job that she is ethically comfortable with in a new country where employment opportunities for military spouses are scarce. Get ready to fall in love with these two! If you miss the heavy, thick, creamy taste and texture of alfredo sauce, you won’t want to miss hearing about Victoria Vegan’s line of vegan alfredo sauces. Seriously, buy this stuff and help her get big enough to make this available in groceries everywhere - it’s delicious. The bachelors out there should love the green challenge for this episode. Embrace your inner Dude with this one - listen to find out what it is! And as always, we wrap it up with shout outs - is yours one of them?
MVR Episode 36: Veganism and Eating Disorders
With the popularization of veganism, more people who suffer with eating disorders are using it as a socially acceptable cover for restricting their eating. Dallas and Ryan discuss this distressing trend, share personal stories, and explore whether or not someone can go vegan “for the wrong reasons”.
Documentaries are powerful tools for changing hearts, minds, and society and the product review is one movie lovers won’t want to miss. Peaceable Kingdom is the new documentary from the fine folks at Tribe of Heart. Yes, we said NEW! If you think you’ve seen PK already, think twice, because the new one is an entirely new film and well worth watching. Designed to be used as an outreach tool and shown to small groups in a home setting, this film highlights the relationships between individual people and individual animals in a way that will appeal to a wide audience and provide a perfect opportunity to discuss veganism.
This is definitely one of my favorite podcasts. I really like the show's laid back format. It kind of feels like you're just hanging out with some friends talking about life, love and veganism. I also like the "Green Challenge" and "Product Review" segments. I love everyone's personalities and how they blend together.
Thanks so much Dallas, Ryan and Elliot for an awesome show! Keep 'em coming!
Ya, we got it.
They talk over each other too often. There is also a significant amount of time wasted with silly off topic moments..frustrating.
This podcast is awesome.
