Back to our regular Wednesday weekly slot, we, The ChickPeeps, find ourselves wildly keen to discuss the past year in vegan news - the updates, controversies, victories and progress, and who better to mull that over than with the exceptionally erudite animal rights’ activist, Earthling Ed. A much loved returning guest from season 1, Ed is vegan educator, public speaker and co-founder of Surge and The Official Animal Rights March. The past year has seen him spreading the vegan message to Ivy League students across America and opening his own non-profit vegan diner, and this week he takes time to pause and reflect on where the vegan movement is in the public consciousness now.
