Episode 188: “Outrage is the nutrient of activism.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — August 16, 2013

Steve_BW_blkteeWelcome to the 188th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Steve-O [transcript].

In today’s episode, we discuss the latest examples of brain-dead behavior from various members of the meat industrial complex. We’ll also tell you about our film shoot for our forthcoming video, “A Vegan Taste of Chinatown.” You won’t believe some of the truly hidden gems we found. Also today, we’ll chat about the meaning of the word vegan; the meaning of the word hypocrisy; and the new meaning we found in a super special kale juice. We may never think of kale the same way again.

Joining us today is comedian, TV host, and “Jackass” star, Steve-O, who will tell us why he’s a passionate vegan, let us in on what items he had to jump through hoops for to get leather-free, and, shockingly, he’ll apologize for some previous behavior involving animal exploitation. Learn why your angry comments to Steve-O changed him forever. Absolutely do not miss this inside scoop. But be forewarned: You may just fall in love with Steve-O.

For our review today, Mariann and I will give you our thoughts on a recent Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary, If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front.

All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.

    What bothers me about the whole vegan meaning diet only is that that's what vegetarian means! A strict vegetarian follows a vegan diet, but may not follow vegan tenants. Vegetarian has become so lax that vegan is becoming the new strict vegetarian. The word is becoming muddied, and I have no idea how to fix it. I just saw a cooking show with a vegetarian competitor who eats eggs and dairy, and another contestant referred to her as vegan.

    Oh, PS - I (briefly) went to a CSA box pickup location where the owners referred to their baked goods that someone else made for them to resell as "gluten-free, vegan-free" LOL. God they were annoying. Call me crazy but I didn't quite trust that they were in fact vegan!
