The ChickPeeps is your friendly, fun, mad-curious vegan podcast. Join us as we explore, discuss and unpick the dilemmas faced by vegans in our quest to be more compassionate towards animals. How do I be vegan? Should I be ok with my partner calling me 'honey' or is that mindless tolerance of an industry built on slave labour? Do I even like bees? Will the vegan gods flay me alive for the brief but profoundly sadistic period in my youth, when I amused myself by pouring sea salt onto defenseless slugs? Must I hold monthly vigils for the deceased slugs? Will I ever be vegan enough?! Perhaps these are some of the difficult questions that plague you as a new vegan, as you wait for vegan-Jesus to descend and press Ye Olde Book of Veganism into your outstretched hands. However, there is no vegan Jesus (we have Moby, though), no sacred text and no perfect or definitive way to go or stay vegan and you will have to answer those questions for yourself. Enter The ChickPeeps, the new plant-fueled pod to accompany and empower your vegan journey. Join our host, actress Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter), and her co-hosts Momoko Hill, Robbie Jarvis and Tylor Starr as they discuss their philosophies, challenges and opinions on living the vegan lifestyle, and listen in as we turn the mic on some of the Animal Rights community's most inspiring and seasoned activists and try to decipher the best ways of living that is kind to animals, ourselves and Mother Nature.

After a story is reported, sometimes there’s more to say. Host Doug Fabrizio talks with KUER reporters as they unpack stories they’ve recently published. You'll hear new insights, unheard recordings and what initially inspired them. It’s kind of like a director’s cut… the good kind.
Take a deep breath, get comfortable (in your car, probably) and bury yourself in Going Mental, a podcast all about…well, going mental. Both hosts navigate life while managing their sometimes debilitating mental health conditions: Neal's a screen and television writer, while Morgan is a Hollywood drop-out and current BuzzFeed editor. These long-time friends will be talking about living (and functioning) with an array of mental health challenges, from depression & anxiety, to ocd, bipolar, and panic disorders, while finding ways to maintain their mental health in today’s world. The show leans on their personal experiences, with a little pop culture thrown in, because they’re not doctors, like not even close. At least we're all in it together, right? RIGHT?

A thrilling podcast about the History of the Modern World. Humanity has been hard at work for centuries to empower itself with better tools and insights, from science and surgery to electricity and the Internet, and this series celebrates the history of those triumphs.

Historian Brad Harris tackles that question head on, revealing how the most important scientific, technological, and cultural advancements in history began, and inspiring us to keep reaching for new historical triumphs along the way.
