1. The ChickPeeps Vegan Podcast

As a massive Harry Potter Fan, and proud Ravenclaw, I was so excited when I found this podcast. Evanna Lynch (our very own Luna Lovegood) and her three co-hosts Momoko Hill, Robbie Jarvis, and Tylor Starr bring you “Your friendly, weekly Vegan and Animal Rights Podcast.” Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, always very passionate, this podcast covers many different topics with a variety of guests, including vegan chefs, activists, business owners, doctors and athletes. They even have two episodes on animal rights in the Wizarding World, for all the Harry Potter Fans out there. Currently, Season 2 is in full swing, so go ahead and join the ChickPeep community.

My current Top 3 Episodes:
1. 1.15: Zero Waste Veganism with Max La Manna
2. 1.24: Activism vs. Attractivism with Earthling Ed

2. The Disclosure Podcast

You probably know Earthling Ed from his videos, passionate speeches, his two Ted Talks, or from his documentary Land Of Hope And Glory. If you have not watched his speech “You Will Never Look at Your Life in the Same Way Again”, I highly recommend checking it out. Now, Ed also has his own podcast. The compelling aspect of this podcast is that there are not just vegan guests on. In one episode he sits down with a dairy farmer and they discuss their different views and opinions as well as aspects they agree on. If you are looking for a more serious, thought-provoking podcast, hosted by one of the most well-known vegan activists, The Disclosure Podcast is what you need.

My current Top 3 Episodes:
1. Vegan Activist Meets Irish Dairy Farmer
2. The Dark Confessions of an Ex-Animal Farmer
3. Can You Be a Non-Vegan Environmentalist? In Conversation with Jack Harries
