This week’s show included an extensive interview with Angie Cordeiro about the ongoing methane disaster at Porter Ranch, California. Hilarity ensued, and the conversation ranged widely. We wrapped with a climate-change update.
THE NIGHTMARE OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE has come home to roost at the SAN ONOFRE nuke reactors south of Los Angeles. The tremendous grassroots victory of the No Nukes movement in shutting this horrible plant is now followed by the harsh realities of dealing with the immense quantities of lethal radioactive fuel rods and other ridiculous residue sitting by the ocean.
So we hear from DONNA GILMORE and ACE HOFFMAN on the technical, economic and political realities of managing this material. We hear, as expected, about how Southern California Edison is doing all it can to cheap out on dealing with this stuff and what it might take to get it managed properly. See Sanonofresafety.org.
We are then joined by MARC ASH of READER SUPPORTED NEWS for our first conversation about progressive websites on the internet. Coming out of the Al Gore campaign in 2000, Marc helped pioneer the world of disseminating important news and information. He warns, among other things, that net neutrality is not a done deal and is now under fire in federal court in Washington DC.

Stay tuned for future shows on both these incredibly important topics.
Part I: Aubry Walch and Ryan Strandjord, The Herbivorous Butcher
Sister and brother duo Aubry and Kale Walch have spent the last several years perfecting The Herbivorous Butcher’s deliciously deceiving meat-free meats. Aubry has been a vegan for 18 years and has spent over a decade creating meat-free alternatives to many the foods that she grew up with on Guam, a place where cooking was a deep-rooted part of everyday life and each meal consisted of at least two different kinds of meat or seafood, not to mention a wide variety of flavors, spices, and textures, blending Guamanian cuisine with culinary cultures from across the world.
After years of watching Aubry thrive as a strict vegan, Kale Walch followed suit and became vegan. Over the past four years, he has developed a keen sense for the many ingredients and methods that go into making the most flavorful, nutritious and satisfying meat alternatives. Having made the change from omnivore to vegan more recently, he is able to invoke the flavors of his previous “meat palate” to create realistic and tastefully accurate meat-alternatives.
Aubry Walch is President of The Herbivorous Butcher, and Ryan Strandjord is Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer.
