Appetite for Reduction Review & BC Vegan Bucket List

On this special edition of Animal Voices (broadcast live from the Vancouver Art Gallery), Alison gives us an enlightening review of Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s (in advance of her interview on the next episode) latest cookbook, Appetite For Reduction. Carissa takes VegNews’ April cover story (The Vegan Bucket List – “99 absolute must-dos before you retire to that great tofu farm in the sky”) for a spin, and shares her own version – the BC Vegan Bucket List.

Because this is a special broadcast edition of the show, there is no feature interview, but lots of time to catch up on all the vegan happenings in Vancouver, like the recent opening of Nice Shoes last weekend, and the upcoming opening of the natural vegan bakery Edible Flours.

Many prostitutes, spouses and girls are sexually harrassed and murdered by men. Cows, pigs, chickens, etc. are raised on farms and ranches mostly run by men and these animals are killed in slaughter houses owned and operated by men. Feminist vegan, Carol J. Adams, has analyzed this connection in a scholarly manner in her book, The Sexual Politics of Meat (see the Vancouver Pulic Library for a copy). Also her website is
    I urge you respectfully to explore this subject on your weekly radio program. I would be pleased to assist you in any way I can.

    Hi Marv,
    Thanks for your comments, and thanks for listening to the show!
    I know Carol J. Adams and her books and this is definitely a subject we haven’t explored before. I will take this suggestion to my co-hosts and see what we can do to present a show on the relationship between violence against animals and women.
