Episode 45: We’re Back!


The team is back together! After more than a year, we are finally living within an hour of each other which is an absolute dream. Last Friday we had a little reunion on Laura’s cute balcony drinking coffee, talking about love and planning big things for the podcast. Of course we also had to record an episode while we were at it! This episode is basically a catch-up on what we’ve been up to during the podcast break, what we have planned for the show and what kinds of health, wellness and mindfulness things we’ve been interested in lately. You can listen to the episode through the player above or by subscribing to our iTunes channel.

There weren’t many shownotes for this episode, though we did talk briefly about:

We are so grateful to have this space to talk about our favourite topics and feel blessed that we can share our thoughts and interests with like-minded people. So thank you so much for listening! We appreciate it so much.


Episode 39: Vegepisode 2.0!

Vegepisode 2.0 >> Guinea Pigging Green

Hi friends!

Hope you’re well and healthy and happy. You can listen to today’s episode using the player below or by subscribing to the show on iTunes here.


Laura has been a vegan for 2+ years and I have been a vegetarian for almost 6 (!!!) with brief periods of pescetarianism and veganism mixed in over the years. Right before moving to Korea last March, I had been happily eating vegan for about 3 months after my experiment with transitioning to vegan. You can hear our episode on that topic right here or see some of the meals I ate here.

In the show we talk about a few different facets of the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, including:

  • my experience being a vegetarian in Korea
  • what is and isn’t challenging for Laura being a vegan
  • The Official Podcast Boyfriend’s (read: Laura’s boyfriend’s) perspective on what it’s like to be a male vegan
  • having friends and family members who eat differently from yourself
  • some of our favourite veggie meals to eat:

We loved having this honest conversation with each other about food and our personal choices, it was really #real! It’s sometimes hard to talk about these topics, but we hope that sharing our experiences here will maybe make other people feel more comfortable with their own choices. We’re all trying our best and our best is always changing.

Again, you can find the show here or on iTunes. You can also let us know your thoughts and ideas in the comments below or on Twitter or Instagram!

Thanks for listening! All our love and non-judgement,
