Welcome to the 313th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Michelle McMacken, M.D., with a special Veganic Gardening 101 segment with Alessandra Seiter. As always, the award-winning, weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by us — Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan.
On today’s episode, we squawk about reclaiming personal power and letting go of fear as a way to help our advocacy efforts, and we offer some of our thoughts on avoiding burnout.
Today we’re joined by Michelle McMacken, M.D. — who is the Assistant Professor of Medicine at NYU School of Medicine, works with the Bellevue Hospital Weight Management Clinic in Internal Medicine, and is a Plant-Based Nutrition, and Lifestyle Medicine expert. Dr. McMacken will squawk with us about how current medicine is very reactive, not preventive. By the end of this interview, you’ll want her to be your doctor, and your very best pal.
Then, in honor of National Houseplant Appreciation Day (who knew?!), the always charming Alessandra Seiter will join us to give us the basics about veganic gardening!
All that, vegan banter, and of course, “Rising Anxieties,” too, so hold onto your tempeh!
