Uhhhh…. holy crap. I interviewed Simone Reyes. And it was one of those interviews that charged my vegan batteries BIG TIME - like after it was over I was in the mood to go picket something or demonstrate somewhere or bake a bunch of delicious vegan cookies and shove them down some omnivore’s throat. Yeah, it was THAT AWESOME.
And for the record, we DID touch on the PETA thing. Kinda apropos, because I’d just spoken about it with Ryan Patey in Red Radio EP39… and talk about different points of view! For those of you who noticed that I seem to be waffling on the subject, well… I am. Why? Because I’m truly conflicted. I have a rough time grilling people on the topic because every time I feel like I’ve secured a solid opinion, I dig a little deeper and find that I’m still quite undecided. So, instead of pretending I know all the answers - SURPRISE! I don’t! - I’d rather just continue to dissect the subject. And dissect, I shall. Keep your ears peeled.
In the meantime, give Red Radio Episode Forty a listen! And remember, I’m on hiatus this week (due to my trip to Toronto for the Vegetarian Food Festival) and will return to the web-waves on Monday, September 17th with EP41 - not to worry!
