Malcolm in the Middle Eastern Food
Greetings one and all! This week, I have a bit of a throwback for you back when I was rocking my old podcast. Alright, I'm going to level with you; I had a rough month and couldn't secure a guest, ok? Cut me some slack! That doesn't mean I don't have a back up plan and that back up plan is Tommy Marudi who is the owner and operator of The Middle Feast food truck! He won season five of The Great Food Truck Race which is no easy feat! If you've seen that show, you will know how hard it is to secure being one of the finalists let alone winning the whole thing. We discuss his time on the show, his business running a food truck, his restaurant background and everything in between. Definitely want to check this out, folks. TUNE IN NOW!!

Time For Vegan News! (April 15th 2021)
Hello one and all! Another glorious month packed full of plant-based bulletins guarantee to get your noggin workin'! This time around, I get a bit introspective and rant-like, but make no mistake, my words come from a place of genuine concern for my world. As always, I add my usual verbal spice and lay on a flair for the dramatic soap box in the form of celebrities posing as vegans, Joe Biden's plan and what my take on what people can do to further grasp the idea of being vegan. What more do you need to know? TUNE IN NOW!!

Please Welcome Dr. Stephanie Peacock!
Happy April Fool's! No, I won't tease you about going back to meat or suddenly becoming a full-blown carnivore because I hate animals. Although that would be fun, I like to keep things as straight forward as I can which is why I am excited to have my first medical expert on the show. Dr. Stephanie Peacock is a former professional swimmer that decided to go into the field of chiropractic medicine and help those who need specialized treatment with their overall well being. Recently hired at The TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, she works alongside some of the nation's most sought after experts in the field of acupuncture, reflexology and water fasting. We discuss her background, what it means to be a chiropractor, combining plant-based nutrition with new age medicine and some misconceptions on what it takes to become certified in her field. There is a lot of valuable information here for those looking to join the vegan lifestyle and for those just curious about it. You won't want to miss this so, TUNE IN NOW!!

Time For Vegan News! (March 15th 2021)
Another month, another round of plant-based news! This month, there is quite a lot of buzz revolving around the fast food world and how the vegan market is starting to encroach on it. Slowly, but surely, our eating habits come closer to being meat and dairy free. Is there a hidden agenda to it all? Maybe. There is plenty to hear and learn, but that is a small piece of the news; we still have Starbucks, UK grocery chains making dietary changes and much much more! What are you waiting for? TUNE IN NOW!!

Shroom Magic & Hemp Dreams With Shadi Ramey
Micro-dosing. Hemp talk. Fungi. Even weed. These are the topics that Shadi Ramey is most passionate about. An author, chef, professor and proprietor of all things sustainable, not to mention the release of her book on all hemp paper called "Hemp Can Change the World," Shadi is one fascinating, far out woman and we talk about it all, but the time flew so quickly that we didn't get the chance to go into too much detail on any one topic, but that just means the conversations never stuck on one focus for too long!

The Valley Vegan Chillcast #4 - Retro to Modern Console & PC Music
The newest segment of The Valley Vegan Chillcast is LIVE! Previously, I have been giving you some of the newest dubstep, electronic and a journey through each genre in the past decades. However, I wanted to do something a bit different. Growing up, I played on all different types of video game systems from Nintendo and Playstation to Sega Genesis and Xbox. When I grew up, I started getting into PC games as well. The things that stood out to me were not the stories or the characters, but the music. The soundtrack of a game makes or breaks the experience. It sends you to a place outside of your reality and gives you goosebumps, nostalgia and even a majestic sense of wonder to explore. It encapsulates everything and nothing and you're never the same again. This week, I bring you some of my childhood tunes from the games I played from retro to modern from all walks of electronic life. There is definitely a lot of emotion floating around these tracks and, as always, there is something for e…

Will The World Ever Be The Same?
Shout out to all medical healthcare professionals; this segment is for YOU. When the pandemic hit peeks of craziness, it was all of you at the forefront. When people are flooding the hospitals and waiting rooms, you are taking care of business. As the madness dies down and we slowly descend to normalcy at some point, it will be all of you that hold fast and continue to provide well-being, care and medical services to the masses. There will be further insanity, people, and it is high time we all realized who has our back; let's have theirs as well. I get on my soapbox for this one, folks, and it is for a worthy cause.

I have you covered to bring your spirits up and get you out of your funk; at least for a little bit.

Is This Pandemic Really SARS 2.0?
Keeping up with the latest in coronavirus news, I have some very interesting articles that I looked through and it has come to my attention that the American people just weren't aware of what was in store for them. We may have been able to stave this off. I talk about how that could have been done. I also get to news that relates to how the virus is affecting us as a society and what kinds of impacts it has made to media and what YOU as Americans should know regarding wages and your economic security.

For those of you that have "self-quarantined" and are limiting your social interaction, do what you have to do, but don't put yourselves in such a state that you avoid all human contact thanks to what you read and hear. I recorded this to hopefully alleviate your concerned about the COVID-19 virus by slamming home some logic into your heads, jump start your common sense and get some of you back on the path to reality.

Jennifer Golden & The Vreamery Factory!
It has been almost two years since I had Jennifer Golden of The Vreamery on my program and since then, I have switched gears from hosting a podcast that rants and haas lots of unfiltered social commentary to a program that deals almost exclusively with vegan news and guests. Having this wonderful woman back on almost feels like being home because, since we last talked, we have both grown in our ideals and learned tons of new information that has shaped our perception of the world for the better. Not only that, but she is now on the precipice of finally opening up her shop at the Paso Walk in Paso Robles! I couldn't be more excited for her and I had to get her back on the re-vamped show. Keep in mind that this was over the phone and I was recording in less than stellar conditions so, if you can make it past all the technical things, then this is definitely a segment that you won't want to miss. TUNE IN NOW!!

Introducing The Vreamery!
This is a throwback to my Word to the Wise Podcast days when I had a lot of different guests on. At the time of this recording, I was new to the vegan thing and this lady who I met in San Luis Obispo at a farmer's market was selling this plant-based cheese that looked delicious. I immediately liked it and her so, I gave her my card and we started talking shortly after I got home. One thing led to another and she ended up on my podcast! Jennifer Golden has come so far since then, but I wanted to share this with my audience to demonstrate how smart, genuine and talented one person can be. Having taken lessons at a renowned vegan artisan culinary school, that is now sadly defunct, Jennifer honed her craft and has produced amazing vegan cheeses that will make your jaw drop. This was one of my favorite recordings and I'm pleased to share it with you all. TUNE IN NOW!!

Should All Feminists Be Vegans?
Have I got one hell of an episode for you this week. I tackle everything from Beyond Meat and vegan fast food to celebrities and vegan feminists. Yes, vegan feminists exist and there may be a conflict of interest there. When it comes to the betterment of humankind, you know how I feel about most movements. Some are good, but most are just people blowing hot air that produce limited results. Hey, don't worry, we got laughs thrown in as well; it isn't all serious. Around here, it never is! TUNE IN NOW!!!

Kobe Bryant, Memphis Meats & More
What a week it has been and what a way to end it with the death of Kobe Bryant. I am not a sports person anymore so, this man dying doesn't mean much to me.

The Valley Vegan Podcast 2019 NYE Blowout!
Happy new year! Have I got a treat for all of you. Last night, I decided to be very stupid and drink nine beers. In an hour. No, not Coronas, Bud Light or Buttwiper. I'm talking high ABV craft brews that will mess you up and they did. Did I do it alone? Hell no. I was joined by one of my good friends Nocterminal, also known as Jenarro Vestuto, who is an up-and-coming music artist and has contributed to this podcast more times and I can count; he even created a special intro song just for this recording! All was going fine with the material until...he fell asleep! No use crying over spilt co-host so, thankfully, my equally inebriated best friend up north wanted to battle on Age of Empires II while we nursed our buzz. While we played, we discussed life, our future, friendship and all that sentimental horseshit. Both conversations have been combined and edited for your listening pleasure and, trust me, a lot of it is hilarious. I will be back to my usual stuff in a week or so, but, for no…
