In this show we hear from Abioseh Cole, the Vegan Poet on the power of language and what lead him to writing the children’s book, “I am Not Food”, a text which explores why animals are people. We also speak to, Addy Rivera Sondas, the illustrator of the new children’s book, “Junebug: No Life Too Small” on her process of bringing this sweet story to life as well as how she uses her artwork to inspire empathy and social change. Our feature interview is with YouTuber and Indigenous mama, Jen Rivera Bell, on Veganism, parenthood, decolonizing food, and minimalism.
A feature interview with Brigitte Gemme on cooking plant-based meals for the family from scratch, plus an interview with Capilano University instructor Nicholas Jennings on his new upcoming course “Veganism & Sustainability”, and an update with local activist David Isbister on Van Aqua suing the City of Vancouver.
We celebrate Black History Month with two young activists who are actively working to change the world. Genesis Butler, 11, has already been recognized as the youngest person to give a TED Talk. 13-year-old Kingston is sharing his vegan message through a YouTube channel, “King Zoom the Vegan Kid”.
