124: Breakfast Republic

124: Breakfast Republic

What happens when a vegan has the Owner and the Corporate Executive Chef of an egg-dominant restaurant on her show? It's not what you think, guys; Breakfast Republic is doing big things here in San Diego! Not only have they added a few vegan items to the menu (they're friggin' amazing; I've had them!), but they even removed a lot of the animal products from their non-vegan items (by replacing the butter with oil, etc), to create less of a chance of contamination.

Let's give a big round of applause for (in my opinion) one of the most vegan-conscious, but otherwise non-vegan breakfast joints for taking the extra step to create an environment for vegans to feel safe to eat in!

122: Direct Action Everywhere – DxE

122: Direct Action Everywhere - DxE

Born and raised in Iowa, Matt Johnson grew up with plenty of farmers, hunters and fishers in his family. As a kid, he made a decision to not eat animals after making the connection that they were sentient beings, but it wasn't until 2013 that he went fully vegan.

Since 2015, Matt has been the press coordinator, as well as an open rescue investigator with the animal rights network Direct Action Everywhere, also known as DxE.

In this episode, Matt shares what it means to be involved in "direct action" as well as the legality of open-rescues under our current system.

121: Understanding Rett Syndrome

121: Understanding Rett Syndrome

Janelle Noble Donovan, creator of ANSHI, developed a product literally at her daughter Raegan's hospital bedside. Raegan has a genetic condition called Rett Syndrome and according to RettSyndrome.org, the unique postnatal neurological disorder is often misdiagnosed as autism, cerebral palsy or non-specific developmental delay.

Rett Syndrome is caused by mutations on the X Chromosome on a gene called MECP2. Common medical concerns may include, but are not limited to: epilepsy, disrupted sleep, orthopedic dysfunction, osteoporosis, spasticity, anxiety and/or early-onset puberty.
