What are you thankful for? We're thankful for the opportunity to visit with Victoria Moran, vegan lifestyle coach, radio host, and author of Main Street Vegan -- and we're also extra-super-thankful that our Thanksgiving table won't feature any dead birds! Like Halloween, Thanksgiving poses special navigational challenges to plant-eaters. We sort right through the holiday's ambiguous history, the nature of tradition invention, and the fine art of dealing constructively with friends and family members who can't imagine a turkey-free Thanksgiving table. Listen!

Also be sure to join the Facebook group Thoughtful Thanksgiving, for some wonderful vegan feast ideas! This group is brought to you by friend of the show Marla Rose, who also created the very fabulous Humane Halloween event last month.
