We had planned to talk about Veganuary this week when we saw our friend Jaime K post about it on her social media and thought, hey, let’s collab! The three of us discuss the potential dark side of Veganuary in the way it has been co-opted by those who profit off of health veganism.

Rank #20: 167 Returned Ex-Vegans
We are FINALLY doing our Returned Ex-Vegans episode, woohoo! Today we bring you five unique and moving stories about people who went vegan, stopped being vegan, and became vegan again. Their stories illuminate the many reasons why we need to have compassion for those who struggle to stay vegan in this non-vegan world, and why we need to have an inclusive, sensitive, anti-capitalist movement that goes beyond defining veganism by consumption.
