What is The V Spot? Well the short of it is Dani and Katt are vegan best friends who are just trying to survive the world we live in and they've decided to document their chats in the form of a podcast.
The long of it is Dani and Katt like to talk. Like a lot. So why not record it for everyone to enjoy! Topics center around veganism, feminism and just activism in general, but that doesn't mean some side convos about their cats or the food they have just eaten won't happen. It will happen. It will happen a lot. So come join these two friends and be their new best friend as we all just try to survive the world together while being cool to each other, having some fun and just not taking it all too seriously. Episodes are uploaded every Monday!

You know we like food. Like a lot. So we spend a good chunk of the start of this one talking about food we love, all the exciting things that are becoming vegan, and the sadness of things that haven;'t yet. GET ON IT PEOPLE. After we get over that, we talk about water!

We've decided that we are no longer really a vegan-ish podcast, we're more of a survival podcast. Cause really what are we all trying to do here in 2020? Just survive the great taco / sandwich war, that's what. We also spend some more time trying to survive the patriarchy and potentially a life without avocados, or as Andy will now be calling them, alligator pears.

It's awards season and we're going to the Golden Globes! Okay, no we aren't but we can talk about it and the vegan-ish stuff that happened and the bit of a dust up on the Twitters surrounding the extremist food choices. And a lot about napping. We also talk about the fires in Australia and there's not a lot fun about that one.

Happy New Year! New Year new podcast right?!
Nope. Same old V Spot, same old vegan-ish content. This one is pretty heavy in the ish category and it really gets Katt going. We talk some New Year's intentions, Meat Loaf, and about some toxic masculinity in conference form. We're believers in that feminism and veganism can go hand in hand, so there's the ish friends.

Hop on your Peloton for a whole mess of segues this week! We talk some news, some interesting internet reactions to commercials, and talk about football! But not in a fun way, in a Michael Vick sort of way. This is kind of a part 1 because there's more to come on the same topics next week.

Happy Friendsgiving everyone! It's a day early just to provide you with something to listen to on your way to or from some sort of gathering you might not want to be at!

Bonus episode for the 2 year anniversary! We did our best to record the Vegan Bosses panel we did at Central New York Vegfest in Syracuse, NY in mid October through all the wedding chaos. The audio quality is passible, but not the Silent Producer's usual standard, so he apologizes. If you came to the panel thanks for showing up and if you didn't, let us know you want more live things, it's a lot of fun getting to meet folks.

You know there's more than one way to make a point. You don't always need to be an abrasive jerk or hit someone with a hatchet. You could for example, use you families wealth to help animals. Lizzy Borden is a role model for us all. Wait.

It's a different episode this week, because Dani has been struck with bone ills and we had to delay the episode for an embargo! So official. This week, Katt and the Silent Producer Andy chat about climate change, cars, and pasta. Also we pepper in a little Democratic debate talk. And the best part, when it all gets a little intense, Mrs. Doubtfire comes to the rescue.
