E6: "It's Double Trouble": On Being a Vegan of Color (with Emiko Badillo)

We start with a brief conversation about Pokemon Go, #BlackLivesMatter, and the place of politics in food media. Then we interview Emiko Badillo, one of the owners of Food Fight, the first vegan grocery store in Portland. She also started Vegans of Color and is a COOL LADY DRUMMER! She talks to us about lifestyle veganism vs. political veganism, the "double trouble" of being a racial as well as a political minority, and how human-centered social justice can have a place within veganism, too.

Music by AF the Naysayer, Blue Dot Sessions, and Puppy Breath. Photo of Emiko Badillo by Annie Paulson.
