We discuss no longer being car-free but still believing cars are the number one enemy, individual and structural actions for sustainable transport and food systems, and visible versus invisible disabilities. In discussing how effective different actions are in tackling climate change, we refer to the article The climate mitigation gap: education and government recommendations miss the most effective individual actions by Seth Wynes and Kimberly Nicholas.

We also do some taste testing of vegan products from the Vegan Grocery Store, featuring: Future Farm Plant-Based Tuna, Chuckie Creme Egg and Hands Off My Chocolate Bites – Candy Choc Crispy. This vegan tasting segment is NOT a paid advertisement or sponsored segment or anything like that, it’s just something we felt like doing!
