Veg Out 525: We’ll Meat Again?

No, we’re not considering turning our backs on our vegan life choices. Instead we’re talking about mock meats, meat substitutes and protein alternatives. But we also broach the topic of lab-grown meat. When the cell-cultured stuff is ready for mass consumption will we be first in line to try it, or are we happy with the alternatives we already have? https://media.blubrry.com/tvp/p/veg.ca/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/VegOut20220514.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Links 3D-printed fake meat on YouTube Soy Curls Other Places to Listen Veg Out on Spotify Veg Out on Google Podcasts Credits Hosts: Marni, Steve and Sweta Editing: Sweta Write Up: Marni Theme Music: Matt Judge… Read More
