Grey Area: podcast exploring ambiguous topics in veganism

From Vegan Student Association Amsterdam comes this podcast series discussing ‘topics within veganism that could be interpreted in different ways or are seen differently by vegans’. In every episode the three hosts discuss a different topic in an intelligent and nuanced way, like should you be 100% vegan, how to think about ex-vegans or the topic of relationships and veganism. So far five episodes are online, approximately one new episode every month. Because of corona, the podcast is being recorded over Zoom.

All episodes are in English. You can find Grey Area on Spotify, check out the latest episode below!

At the moment Happy Cow lists 374 vegan friendly restaurants in Amsterdam, of which 39 are fully vegan! Albert Heijn added little vegan signs (see pic above) to various (not all) vegan products in the supermarket, this is huge. Many big nationwide companies are currently working on vegan options, this year for example Hema, Ikea, Multivlaai, Subway and Bakker Bart came with a vegan meal.
