In today’s episode, we’ll report back on Jasmin’s appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, where she dropped the V-Bomb. And we’ll chat with kettlebell champion and passionate vegan, Jennifer Hintenberger, whom we met last weekend during our trip to Niagara Falls where we spoke at the 1st-ever Niagara VegFest (and join us next week for a full rundown of the amazing event).
Our feature interview today is with world-renowned ultramarathon champion, Scott Jurek, whose new book, Eat and Run, details his unlikely journey to ultramarathon greatness, and explains how his veganism played a vital role in getting him there. Scott will chat with us about all of that, as well as how he came to embrace veganism, and what advice he has for vegans who might be interested in taking up running, and runners who might be interested in taking up veganism!
For our review, and in preparation for our big move to the West Coast, we will give you our top ten tips for vegan road trips.
On today’s episode, you’ll also have the opportunity to win one of five one-day admission passes to The Seed: A Vegan Experience, which is coming to NYC next weekend, June 16 and 17.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
