E238b – Steph Routh Ends Her Vegan Year



Steph Routh went vegan for a year on a bet she thought she would win.  Turns out she has incredible self-restraint!  Brock was there for the first non-vegan thing she ate since 2014, and asked if she’d share the moment.

Congratulations on a huge life experiment, Steph! It’s inspiring to try something new, even if it’s challenging.


E221 – Maren Souders: Open Ears, No Car



Maren Souders has never, ever owned a car.  That’s an achievement even for those who’ve tried!  She brings us some inspiring stories and thoughts on low-car life, the value of listening, and trying to eat vegan while taking Amtrak trains across the country.  Notably, she’s spent some time on a multi-city listening tour, sitting in public places with a “free empathy” sign!  Her webistes:dreamintochange.com & happytolisten.com

Also: Brock explored the wilds of SW Washington; Aaron rides to Boring.

E196x – Lisa Nims, or, Pins



Because Lisa wasn’t able to make it to our Jonathan Maus interview, and because I think she’s just good for the podcast, here’s Lisa (I call her Pins) and I chit chatting it up for almost 2 hours. Most of it about food.

Also, Brock and Adele’s latest and last tour update.

You can’t get this shit on the radio, this is only for you internet hounds!
