Did anyone else hear this recently?http://www.wnyc.org/shows/lopate/2012/a ... m-animals/
(only read the comments if you need to feel crummy. the meatmeat site is linked.....)
I was really frustrated listening and was yelling back at my ipod several times.
Jenny Brown sounds like a cool lady, and I admire the work she does. A few times she used some words that I could almost hear audience members roiling about (holocaust, slavery, women's suffrage etc- the usual comparisons that maybe we longtime vegans are cool with but sometimes get noobs upset; no criticising though since i probably couldn't do any better in a face to face interview).
BUT, the interviewer was a real butthead who was directly confrontational, challenging, and then cut JB off several times after claiming veganism was extreme, unrealistic, etc. Because she has health challenges that personally make it impossible to be vegan. And people who can't eat cheese would have problems.
