Episode 9: Interview with Nick Zukin, Part 2

Stumptown Vegans Episode 9

In July 2009, Portland based food writer and restaurateur Nick Zukin abandoned his carnivorous roots for a month-long Vegan Quest.

The food connoisseur behind ExtraMSG, the Portlandfood.org forums, and both Kenny & Zuke’s establishments, was interested “to see what it’s like to live as a vegan. Call it a form of cultural anthropology, like living with a tribe in the Amazon or something. That’s not intended to be demeaning. I just mean to highlight the truly incommensurable differences between my world and the vegan world. I aim to walk in their shoes”.

Join the Stumptown Vegans as we sit down to discuss his experience in the final part of this interview.
