This week (and next week) we are finally tackling a topic that we've been interested in for a long time: universal basic income (UBI)!

For the first of our three-part kids' movie series, we rewatched Wall-E and were horrified at how awful it was. Beyond insufferable fat-shaming, it had an insidious conservative message lurking under its seemingly liberal veneer. Oof.

After hearing about a school in Texas that denied a family's request for vegan food and served their 4 year old meat, we thought this was a good opportunity to talk about a lot of things, including access, how government aid can make personal autonomy more difficult, respecting others choices, and a whole lot more!

Heyo! Today we wanted to share some information from one section of our London speech with y'all and generally talk about why pro-capitalist veganism will never succeed to free animals from oppression. Also, Nichole gives a legendary rant-recap of No Reservations, one of the worst movies ever made during which she and Callie possibly laugh harder than they ever have before on air.
