Favorite Countertop Appliances + Lessons from a Kitchen Remodel
29 Apr 2020 at 9:00am
While it's true that countertop appliances require some space, it's also true that they make it easy to prepare and eat delicious, nutrient-dense, animal-free, plant-based dishes. While you can get along without them, I do think a couple are worth the space they take up on your counter, and their price points are really reasonable these days. In addition, (... More)

Vaccines Are a Bunch of Bull: Animal-Related Words for Diseases and Cures
14 Apr 2020 at 8:00am
No, this episode is not about denying the life-saving efficacy of vaccinations; it's about all the animal-related words we have for diseases and cures, including the word VACCINE, which comes from the Latin word for a cow or bull.
