This week Paul and Andy turn their attention to challenge-based advocacy, embodied by campaigns like Veganuary. Does challenging someone to go vegan for a select period of time have a high success rate or is it doing more damage in the long run?

Plus they follow up on the latest developments in #timesupAR and cover the news, including lawmakers forcing stores to carry eggs from caged chickens.
