All Things Vegan show notes: Zoe Weil, of The Institute for Humane Education, on doing the Most Good and Least Harm

Standard

I forgot to mention that we had a new episode air on Tuesday:

Zoe Weil, of The Institute for Humane Education, on doing the Most Good and Least Harm to yourself, other people, other species, and the environment

Zoe Weil has an amazing list of accomplishments: She’s an author, an educator, a speaker, and has a one woman show, called “My Ongoing Problems with Kindness: Confessions of MOGO Girl”. Her greatest accomplishment is co-founding the Institute For Humane Education.

Some of the topics we have to share with you in this episode are:  The firestorm that ensued when a USDA newsletter endorsed Meatless Monday and why the short-lived endorsement was retracted, which celebrities have been speaking up for animals, and we have a new song to share with you—Groovy Vegan Song by Vegan Smythe.

Plus much more news from the Vegan Frontier, Barb’s Out ‘n About in Eugene, and vegan related events around town.

Mellower than Saturday

Standard

Thankfully, Sunday was mellower than Saturday. I slept wayyy in, cleaned the master bedroom, read some of Zoe Weil’s Above All, Be Kind and put together an intro and some questions for Zoe, who we’re interviewing tomorrow morning. I also reviewed some songs that we might feature on All Things Vegan.

Other than that, we had an impressive thunderstorm. Exactly what Ruby didn’t need today. We thought maybe her pain meds would dull her normal anxiety about thunderstorms—we even gave her a little extra (within the OK range from the vet)—and she still freaked out and spent much of the evening squashed under the desk in the closet. Poor little nut.

Later this evening, we turned on the Mars Curiosity coverage and have left it on. If it lands around when they think, I may still be up. But I have to get up at the crack of dawn for the ATV interview, so if there are issues, I may not.

In spite of this, the day flew by: I’m not sure where the last 11 hours have gone!
