Jasmin talks to Sarah Woodcock about her Minneapolis restaurant, Trio Plant-Based, which was recently funded on Kickstarter and will be opening soon! They discuss Trio’s spectacular vegan menu, the power of partnership, and the efforts to get the project funded. Sarah Woodcock is a Korean-USAmerican adoptee, social justice activist, and co-founder of Trio Plant-based – a forthcoming Minneapolis restaurant which will bring delicious plant-based food, made and served with love, to the community.
Then, Jasmin chats with Erik Marcus about his newest essay, “Why Choose Vegan?” Erik explains his reasons for writing this important essay and his hope that people will use it to reconsider some of the arguments they use for promoting veganism.
Also, Jasmin and Mariann talk about a disturbing note left on Jasmin’s car this week, and how people’s reactions to it affected her.
