ACT RADIO: Questions People Ask Vegans

  Greg, Liz, and Tom talk with Sherry Colb, Charles Evans Hughes Scholar and Professor of Law at Cornell University.  Sherry is the author of "Mind if I Order the Cheeseburger: And Other Questions People Ask Vegans."  Sherry talks about some of those questions, including "what about plants?"  Why are vegans not as sensitive to the needs of plants as the are of animals?  Another question, "what about eating for pleasure?" is one that non-vegans use to justify their consumption of meat and cheese. Part 1 of a 2-part interview.  http://mindifiorderthecheeseburger.com/
