In this week’s episode I, Tara, will be hosting the show for the first time. I will be interviewing Joanne Chang from Nice Shoes on the ins and outs of opening a vegan shop in Vancouver. We learn what the challenges and rewards are of running a vegan store. We also get to hear about Alissa’s first trip down to Portland, OR where she discovered for herself just how vegan friendly the city is. Alissa will also be discussing zoos and why they are a form of animal cruelty.
