You guys! Please join the chat at 3pm today. I am actually just chiming in in the last 10 minutes to talk about vegan cooking. I'm not sure what the debate part will be, since none of the panelists are vegan, but, we shall see!

ETA: They've added T Colin Campbell to the panel, so that's cool.

I'm trying to listen, but the audio is really rough. I'm not sure if it's just my computer or not.

Also, the audio was echoey when I first listened and now it's sorting itself out.

it sounds o.k. to me, but it was sort of a mess at the very beginning. i just saw isa's cat, who's crazy cute, so the glitches are worth it.

this paleo guy. at the very beginning he said the largest veg populations in the world, in india and china, have the same rates of cardiovascular disease as non-veg populations, but then when the medical doctor said that those recent values had shifted as a result of the adoption of a westernized diet, he said the largest study was essentially invalid because it had followed too few subjects and you couldn't take those recorded rates seriously. and now he's trying to tell isa that she's b12 deficient even though her doctor told her she's not. his sound just started to cut out, and that's my favorite thing about his portion so far.

I think if you opened it in a second window, you have to close the original window. that's what fixed it for me, even though it wasn't playing in the original window.

No they pulled the plug on me. Instead of telling Paleo dude to STFU.

It's still echoey for me, even with the other window open. I see Isa's gone anyhoo. Well, she did good while there.

Dr. Campbell said something about 'B12 deficiency in so-called "viggins", which I don't support'. So he was just as big of a loud, yelling douchebag!

I think the moderator realized how bad it was going. I said 'this was pointless' in the chat right before she killed it.

oh, i thought he was saying he doesn't support the idea that vegans are worse off for their b12 levels. But i think you're right that he was saying he doesn't support veganism because after that he said plant based.

Ha, I had a loooong email exchange with the producer before the show about how I don't want to argue with a paleo dude. What the fork ever. I feel screwed over.
