  1. Blending Art, Advocacy, and Compassion in the Fight for Collective Liberation with Stewart Mitchell Carly Jean Puch 53:22

When my guest, Stewart Mitchell, first swapped their food service apron for the mantle of vegan activism, they embarked on a quest that would challenge and change them in ways they never expected. This episode captures that transformative journey, inviting listeners to understand veganism not just as a dietary choice, but as a potent form of planetary activism. Through the lens of personal narrative, we unearth the deep connections between our well-being and the broader health of our environment, underscoring the ripple effects of our food choices.

The heartbeat of our conversation thrums with the struggles and triumphs of advocating for the voiceless. We chart the path from a simple love for animals to the front lines of activism, wrestling with societal norms and personal convictions. The power of storytelling emerges as we spotlight “Liberation Summer,” a children’s book, written by Stewart, set to reshape perspectives in New York City schools, especially within communities of color. It’s a tale that exemplifies the inclusive potential of veganism, proving it’s accessible and vital for all walks of life.

As we wrap up, our focus shifts to the essential role of Self-Care in the activism arena. Keeping the flame of passion alight demands that we nurture ourselves with the same fervor we devote to our causes. I share my gratitude for the community we’re building, the conversations we’re fostering, and the change we’re collectively striving towards. Join us on this episode as we lift the veil on the intricate tapestry of veganism, social justice, and the enduring power of compassionate commitment.

Music by Matthew Baxley

As I stumbled through the perils of answering the ultimate question, "what do you want to do with your life?" I knew somehow my answer would incorporate helping others. This translated into paths that, when I tuned into the universe, I realized were very connected. (Funny how that always happens!)

People are complicated, messy, and layered with identities. So is this space. I am a meditation enthusiast that sits in quietness every morning and a lover of blasting 90's hip-hop at full volume. I'm a gym rat and a yoga instructor. I am both learner and a teacher. We are all many things. Together we can make them all work.

I love to share all the things I'm learning along the way. Learning how to be your most fabulous self but being honest about how damn hard and messy it can be along the way lets you speak your truth. It allows you to best use your voice for the causes that matter to you. Let's get healthy and change the world together!
