March’s podcast from Viva! – How well do you know your history of veganism? Did you know that ethical veganism is a protected philosophical belief in the UK? Well, we chat to the man that made it happen Jordi Casamitjana, who gives us the lowdown on his new book, Ethical Veganism: A Personal and Political Journey to Change the World.

In this episode, we also delve into why vegans specifically don’t eat prawns, (spoiler alert, research suggests they do feel pain), and Maryanne from the Vegan Recipe Club reminisces about a time we could travel (sigh), as we round-up some top vegan travel tips.  
Plus, we bring you the latest vegan news and music to get your ears around!
