Episode 2129 - On this Monday's show, Vinnie Tortorich and Anna Vocino chat about an email from a vegan, vitamins, an article about environmental concerns, and more. http://vinnietortorich.com/2022/06/email-vegan-episode-2129 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS EMAIL FROM A VEGAN Vinnie and Anna lead off by discussing how busy they both have been, which leads to some playing a bit of music. (2:20) Then Vinnie and Anna discuss an email from a vegan that was sent to them which leads to a zippy little "stinger" that Anna makes up on the fly. (12:40) Anna reads an email from Chris, a vegan, who Brings up "Beyond Impossible" and makes claims about B-12; as a result, Vinnie explains the sources of the vitamin. (14:20) Vinnie and Anna also discuss some of the "rebranding" that is being used from "vegan" to "plant-based." (12:58) The email also inspires discussion of celebrity endorsements and whether or not they are effective, in Vinnie and Anna's opinions. (29:43) ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS Vinnie and Anna then switch to a topic based on an article that was sent to Vinnie from the U.K. (35:18) The article discusses the misleading idea that going "plant-based" is better for the environment; a large company in the U.K. got into a little bit of trouble by making claims that they couldn't back up. (36:45) The article mentions the importance of supporting locally sourced and sustainable foods when possible and avoiding highly processed foods and "food miles." (39:12) Vinnie brings up several very important points about food sourcing and the environment. (45:20) Anna and Vinnie discuss environmental concerns and they advocate learning where your food comes from. (47:30) They discuss sponsorship and support for the show and how sharing its message is important. (49:15) This leads to a chat about particular products for women. (53:00) The show ends with Vinnie's song of choice inspired by the discussion. (59:26) PURCHASE BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE The documentary launched on January 11! Order it TODAY!
