Episode 497: Ryan Patey of T.O.F.U Magazine

By Jasmin and Mariann — July 20, 2019

This week, Jasmin talks to Ryan Patey of T.O.F.U Magazine about publishing a DIY magazine, how his travels influence his views of animal issues, and why looking back at your own early work isn’t always the best idea. T.O.F.U. started in 2007 in Canada, but has since gone on to establish a worldwide audience. Nominated as one of the best vegan magazines in 2018’s VegfestUK Awards, the magazine takes a pro-intersectional, anti-oppression approach to veganism in an effort to extend the conversation beyond the plate.

In the intro to this episode Jasmin has some interesting experiences on an Amtrak train while trying to write her new book, including one lovely gesture from a fellow passenger.

As always, the award-winning weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by Mariann Sullivan and Jasmin Singer.
