Episode 96
(Air Date: August 4th, 2017)

Today’s the day my first ever play opens — Off-Off-Broadway!!! (That’s a thing!)

And instead of running to the gym (Spoiler Alert: I didn’t make it) I instead busted out this episode so I could get it to you guys sooner rather than later!

I forgot to mention in this episode that I will be appearing this weekend at the National Animal Rights Conference in Washington, D.C.!  I’ll have a booth in the exhibit hall during the day on Sunday from 10am – 5pm and then I’m performing at the closing night festivities with Mistress Ginger herself!  So come say hi, and buy some merch, will ya?

In today’s episode (it’s a long one!) I interview five people who just saw the movie “What The Health” and decided then and there to go vegan!

I spoke with: Mariah Kitner, Eric Miles, Sandra Torres, Lois Thompson, and Amanda Riker.

And these are their stories!

Enjoy!

P.S. If you want the Vegan Cheese Sauce recipe I mentioned on this episode, IT’S ON MY PATREON!!!

Episode 94
(Air Date: May 30th, 2017)

Hey guys!

So first off — HAPPY 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO BIG FAT VEGAN RADIO!!!  We forgot to observe that this time around!  I guess Honey was too distracted exhibiting The Vegan Drag Queen at RuPaul’s Drag Con and enjoying LA!

So for today’s show, we decided to try something spontaneous. Ben was thinking about what were people’s biggest influences in going vegan. He posted this question on his Facebook and got over 130 comments! So he challenged his Facebook friends to spontaneously record their stories about hot they went vegan, and what was the single-most influential person/movie/incident/etc… that helped them make the switch.

Special thank you to those who contributed their storied to this episode:

A man bought a 17 pound lobster named Larry (estimated to be between 80-100 years old) from a restaurant so he could release him back into the ocean.

HISSES:
Ben’s hissing about:

His local Zen Palate (at 105th & Broadway) has closed!  
We gotta support our local vegan business, people!  Especially when we can clearly see that they’re not doing too well!

Laura’s hissing about:

The USDA retracts it’s support of Meatless Mondays after pressure from Ag business

WHAT’S FOR DINNER?

Laura has a Tofurky Pizza
(don’t picture a turkey-flavored pizza…  it’s not!)
http://www.tofurky.com/tofurkyproducts/pizza.html

Ben had a boring-ass veggie burger and fries
at the Cosmic Diner on 52nd St,
surrounded by fellow drag queens.

WHAT’S A KIKI?

Ben explains the difference between a “kiki” and “kai kai“.

BEN MAY OR MAY NOT BE A HO

Ben divulges a bit about his sex life, and reveals his ideas for creating more responsible sexual conduct in the gay community (and beyond.)

HISSES & PURRS:

Laura’s purring about:
James Cameron goes vegan and openly says it is for the animals!!
http://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/james-cameron-goes-vegan-and-its-a-moral-choice/

Ben’s hissing about:
A Heifer International catalog came in the mail, soliciting donations to send livestock to third world countries as gifts to help poverty stricken individuals.  WTF?
http://www.friendsofanimals.org/actionline/fall-2005/heifer-international.php

By the way — here’s a link to the ridiculous question they have posted on their website.
AS IF an actual vegan/vegetarian wrote this question, right?!?
http://heifer.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/heifer.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=9

…and Ben suggests that you give instead to:
Kiva.org (micro-credit loans to third world countries),
just be sure to give to animal-free businesses!

Laura’s hissing about:
All the commotion over Michael Vick having a new dog, and everyone’s perpetual obsession with Michael Vick’s evil-ness while munching on hamburgers.
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/20567391/vick-has-a-dog-might-be-just-whats-needed-to-break-cycle-of-cruelty

Ben’s purring about:
Shoes of Prey will custom make vegan shoes fit for a drag queen!
http://www.shoesofprey.com/

…and Ben likes:

a few easier-to-find (over-the-counter) favorites such as:
Chick-O-Sticks, Mambas, Nutter Butters, Oreos, and Skittles,
and as always, anything on PETA’S Accidentally Vegan list
(…and don’t forget — Starburst are NOT vegan!)

***CORRECTION***
In the first version of this episode, Ben originally included “Smarties” in his list of candies that are vegan.  This was a mistake!  As you may remember from Episode 1, we previously stated that Smarties are in fact NOT vegan.

As stated on their own website, Smarties states that their candy is indeed vegan:
http://www.smarties.com/product/vegan/


***UPDATE***

IT IS CONFIRMED!  Smarties are vegan!  Here is the email I received from Smarties:

From: Kerri Nastasi
Subject: RE: Contact Us
Date: November 8, 2012 9:34:50 AM EST
To: “benstrothmann@mac.com”

Thank you for your email at Smarites.com, Ben-

Please be assured that our Smarties products are vegan and do not contain any animal products or by products. The information that is listed on the link that you included in your email, regarding Smarties containing carmine, is false.

We appreciate you brining this to our attention, thank you! We hope that this has addressed your concern. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.

Thank you again!

[BELOW IS MY ORIGINAL EMAIL TO THEM]

From: noreply@smarties.com [mailto:noreply@smarties.com]

You have an article on your site that states that Smarties are indeed Vegan.

However – as I have seen published on other websites, some Smarties are dyed using carmine (a dye derived from beetle-like insects)

Is this true? Has this changed?

Here is a link to this source:
http://simplyfantasticbooks.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/8-foods-you-didn_t-know-contained-meat1.png
You mentioned on your site that Smarties are indeed vegan and that they contain no animal ingredients. Here is a link to that page on your site:

WHAT’S FOR DINNER?

Ben is eating his feelings again.  Starting with two Chana Masala (Spiced Chickpea) Wraps at  Bombay Frankie’s Roti Roll, followed by a bowl of Cap’n Crunch and a Strawberry Banana Naked Juice – oh and a side of shame. And all of this on top of a half a box of girl scout cookies.

Laura had LUNCH!!  At Veggie Grill!  She had a Beef and Barley Soup plus the VG Rollers (Vegan Chick’n with a spicy sauce)
