In today's episode, I share my experience - and a fun audio clip - from my recent visit to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, the Albany (NY) VegFest, and Red Robin Song Animal Sanctuary (and vegan guest house). I also answer your questions about whether or not it's "vegan" to visit natural history museums (that feature stuffed dead animals), about what I feed my cats, and about what my favorite teas are. I wrap up today's episode with The Compassionate Life segment in which I share my story about going from a compassionate child to a desensitized adult and back again. Today's Tweetable: "Being vegan is not about trying to be perfect. It’s about doing the best we can do avoid causing harm to someone else."

Food for Thought has been running for almost 8 years, which is fantastic and incredible – and possible because of the support of my amazing listeners. However, it's time for a change, and change is here! Check out today's brief episode in which I announce the new format for the podcast, including Through a Compassionate Lens (my weekly observations and experiences), Animalia (reviews of animals in arts and culture), Verbal Vivisection (how our language contributes to violence against animals), The Compassionist (my weekly essay), a call-in segment called WWCPGD?, and MORE! The possibilities for the new format are incredibly exciting, and I appeal to you for your support, feedback, and enthusiasm!

Today’s episode focuses on the third stage of "what happens when you stop eating animals"): Coming Out. Join me as I talk about what it means to “come out.” What does it mean to be in the closet? When is the best time to come out? How do you come out? To whom do you come out? And how do you respond to the reactions to your coming out? My intention in this episode is to empower you to come out in such a way that reflects your enthusiasm, demonstrates compassion for family and friends who may not understand (or who may not share your enthusiasm), and to reflect your autonomy.
