On today’s show, we feature an interview with Mark Love, a fitness trainer with over ten years of experience in training all kinds of people, from athletes to sedentary adults and people recovering from illness or injury. Mark gives tips on how to get motivated and keep yourself motivated to exercise, and discusses what it’s like to be a vegan in the fitness industry.
We also have our usual Vegan Freak fare: we discuss articles about dog rental services and about the subjectivity of our perception of food, and in response to listener voicemails we talk about standing up for what you want in a restaurant, the “manliness” of eating what you want and dying young, and why it isn’t healthy to channel your anger and sadness over the state of the world inward.
This week on Vegan Freak Radio we are joined by Chris Hannah of Propagandhi to talk about music, activism, living one’s principles, jingoistic sporting events, eating foodies and….oh, yeah, and Propagandhi’s new album, Supporting Caste, out March 10th around the world. We play two excelllllent tracks from the new album, which is sure to please old and new fans alike.
Of course, we put the exciting stuff with Chris in the second half of the show. In the first half, you have to suffer through our witty banter, which includes us pondering why anyone would call 911 about chicken McNuggets, and our discussion of how masculinity and meat eating constructs even the identities of our companion animals. Plus, we talk about what “vegan-plus” means (hint: nothing) and we respond to your tweets and voicemails.
