The chef of Verde Mesa in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, discusses the connotations of “vegetarian,” the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, and the island’s beet resurgence.
Welcome to Meatless, a podcast about eating.
It’s hard to have open conversations about the reality of eating animal products — whether omnivorous, vegetarian, vegan, or something else entirely. On Meatless, Alicia Kennedy talks with chefs, writers, and more about how their personal and political beliefs determine whether or not they eat meat. How do identity, culture, economics, and history affect a diet? Join Alicia and her guests as they discuss why people eat, how they eat, and where ethics, politics, cultural identity, and animals fit into all that.
Written and presented by Alicia Kennedy. Produced by Sareen Patel.
