    Jenny and Pavle Stojkovic: Is Veganism Doomed?

    Jenny and Pavle Stojkovic: Is Veganism Doomed?

    Meet Jenny and Pavle Stojkovic, a power couple determined to shape the future of food with an arc towards justice and compassion.

Whether you're vegan, plant-based, or a hamburger eating carnivore, I guarantee you, this episode is one you're going to want and NEED to buckle up for--we go from tragedy to clarity to activism to the future of not just food, but everyone who eats it. As is always the case on Are You Ready, we cover a LOT of ground, get deep, and take a good long look at some challenging issues.

    I Ran The NYC Marathon!!!

    I Ran The NYC Marathon!!!

    “My knees began to smart and I started to feel “something” in my right hip-flexor–something that reminded me of those cartoons where Elmer Fudd tries to drive a car that literally falls apart with the wheels rolling away and the engine banging out with a “poof.”
     
    Joanne recaps her awesome NYC Marathon experience, complete with the weekend nutrition that fueled her race: boiled potatoes, NYC bagels, pizza, ramyeon, and her favorite NYC restaurant. Plus, a nightmarish parting thought…

    The Power of Words.

    The Power of Words.

    "As my brother learned the hard way when he once used the word 'negligee' instead of 'negligent,' it's probably a good idea to know exactly what a word means before you use it."
     
    In this week’s episode, Joanne takes a deep dive into the meaning and etymology of words that might require some clarity, at least as they relate to the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East.

    Behind Every Great WOMAN...

    Behind Every Great WOMAN...

    In this episode, Joanne sits down with two men (Sam Livits, COO of Blogilates / Popflex; and her husband Anthony, GM of The Korean Vegan) to talk about how they've found themselves behind the women who've launched themselves into public facing careers and helmed the prows of their own businesses.

    Loneliness.

    Loneliness.

    "[Loneliness] is associated with a greater risk of cardiovascular disease, dementia, stroke, depression, anxiety, and premature death. The mortality impact of being socially disconnected is similar to that caused by smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day, and even greater than that associated with obesity and physical inactivity." -​U.S. Surgeon General's Advisory (2023)​.
     
    This week, Joanne tackles the subject of loneliness and wonders whether she can "fake out" the nation's current epidemic in the same way she tried to outsmart her imposter syndrome.
     
    Visit the episode page on The Korean Vegan website for more on the epidemic of loneliness, including pictures and links. Plus, this week's Recipe Inspo, and "What I'm... (Watching, Reading, Wearing)."

    Faking Out Imposter Syndrome

    Faking Out Imposter Syndrome

    "You need to create a 'Joanne 2.0,' a Joanne that pretends that she knows she deserves to be there as much as everyone else."
     
    I imagined donning the guise of a totally "new" Joanne--one who was confident, made people laugh, strode into rooms with her shoulders back and her gaze straight. Only, it wouldn't really be a "new" me so much as a "fake" me, like a character in a sitcom.
     
    While looking to trick herself out of her own Imposter Syndrome during a recent trip to NYC, Joanne discovers the true meaning of confidence. 
     
    Visit the episode page on The Korean Vegan website for more on "Faking Out Imposter Syndrome," including pictures and links. Plus, a Korean Street Food recipe, and a feature in The New York Times in "What I'm (Watching, Reading, Wearing)."

First time listener

I watch you on Facebook all the time. Today I finally started to follow your podcast. The first episode I listened too was about cultivated meat. I wish more hard questions were asked but it was still a great episode. Please consider interviewing Miyoko Schinner. She is a very well known vegan who has spoken out against cultivated meat. She can provide more info and a present a different side of the industry I feel is very hidden to many vegans.

Great podcast

I enjoy this podcast so much. Thank you for all of the information and fantastic guests. I am sad I missed the Champaign event (I live in Forsyth!) but hopefully I’ll meet you at some point. Please keep up the great work.
