Katie is back for this one and we’re joined by one of our favourite comedians Myq Kaplan, who will be performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He discusses travelling as a vegan, the potential for comedy to promote important political ideas, and aiming for greater diversity in comedy. We encourage people to check out Myq Kaplan’s podcast Hang Out With Me, buy his CDs, follow him on Twitter and like him on Facebook!
Other stuff covered on the episode is: Lindsay McDougall’s article ‘10 Reasons to go Vegan that have Nothing to do with Animal Rights’, Nick’s talk ‘Hybrids or Hummus: Which has the Biggest Impact?’, a new free online vegan starter pack, comedian Judith Lucy’s show ‘Judith Lucy is all Woman’, privilege and police, and there’s plenty of contributions from our dog Charlie.
