Welcome to the 101st episode of Our Hen House, featuring Liuba Grechen from Sweet Cheeks Vegan Bakery, with a special appearance by vegan artist extraordinaire, Sue Coe.
In today’s episode, we discuss our recent foray into de-tchotchke-ifying our lives, and our need for nesting. We also talk about health – including some ruminations on the differences between a junk food vegan diet and a whole foods based vegan diet. We’ll tell you about the home study we’ve been doing throughout our current juice fast.
Joining us today is Liuba Grechen, owner and founder of Sweet Cheeks Vegan Bakery – a new cruelty-free company in NYC. Liuba will talk about for-profit activism, how she feels the tide is turning for vegan businesses, and what you need to know if you want to start your own.
Then, as a special addition to today’s episode, we will play for you the story of how vegan artist extraordinaire, Sue Coe, met her first dog.
For our review, our Hollywood Correspondent Ari Solomon will be joining us to give us his take on the book, An Eagle Named Freedom.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
