Mexie and Marine, you deliver quality content from a pro-intersectional perspective. I am a better person after listening to each episode. Thank you so much!
A Great Team Up!
I was first introduced to both Mexie and Marine by way of their respective YouTube channels and was really stoked when I heard that they where going to start a podcast. They offer a valueable perspectve on both issues within veganism as well as offering a revolutionary vegan woman's persepective on issues out side of veganism. I am looking forward to wide variety of possible topics and the concept of not defining veganism by consumption.
