What’s up, beardos?! This week, by popular demand, we are discussing an incident involving a protest-gone-wrong. Local activists in Toronto decided to target a restaurant that prides itself on providing local and “humane” meat. When the restaurant’s co-owner decided to stage a counter-protest that involved carving up a deer’s leg and eating it in front of the protesters, he earned the restaurant a flood of international praise and their reservations skyrocketed. We dissect what went wrong and attempt to find some lessons learned in the aftermath. Ultimately the discussion keeps leading us to weigh the pros and cons of targeting individual restaurants.

Plus we break down the news, including the latest vegan celebrity worship and Post Mates banning the delivery of foie gras.
