Leave the food talk. It’s become a staple (pun intended) of the episodes. Great podcasts often have food talk.
Keep talking about the food you ate! It makes me super jealous, but it’s awesome to hear about the restaurants and amazing sounding dishes all over the country. It’s helpful when I’m about to travel and it makes me want to travel!
They just opened up an Empire in the Back Bay area of Boston.(I believe) Went there recently for a family member’s birthday and the staff was super accommodating! Their vegetable and tofu dishes were great 🙂
So that’s the case? Quite a reelvation that is.
Hi, I just recently found out about the show through the Edgeland podcast so first off, I just want to say that I’ve really enjoyed the episodes I’ve dived into so far. Also, I’m a fan of the food talk so I would say to leave it in.
As far as the question/topic for this podcast, the only other thing I thought about after reading the original article and watching the video is that the author might have a few credible points if he was speaking directly to someone who is vegan and who is asserting that they are absolutely morally superior and that meat-eaters can’t make any moral or ethical decisions with how they eat. It feels like his gripe is with vegans who think they are perfect, but he then makes the mistake of trying to bring in broader talking points about being vegan as a whole. If he really encounters that many vegans who think they are “perfect”, then it’s fine to suggest that they probably aren’t. He just makes a mess of it by assuming all vegans who are motivated by morals (rather then health, since he is apparently all for that) think they are superior. Like you guys said, he is making an all or nothing issue where there doesn’t need to be one. Those are just my thoughts though! Really enjoyed the episode!
Agree with Jacky — It sort of seemed like this guy was arguing some stuff one vegan did or didn’t (gonna go with didn’t) say to him once and using that to try to, well…make an excuse as to why he thinks it’s okay to eat meat. Which is what things like this are always really about anyway. Some of it just reminded me of a kid bullshitting his way through an essay question on a test. (“plants, tho”) I was also kind of put off by how clearly he doesn’t consider animals to be anything but property for humans to use while doing some weird muddy accusations of vegans very selfishly only caring about animals because they…”look like us.” (??) This made no sense. So good song choice for the closing.
