Big Fat Vegan Radio

Big Fat Vegan Radio Like veganism? Like drag queens? You'll LOVE how we dish about politics, new ideas, social justice, & animal rights but with levity & snark! A place for vegans to just let go, laugh, and be stupid - while still taking animal rights really super seriously!

Coming Clean, a play by Ben Strothmann – Honey LaBronx

In 2014 I wrote I play. I didn't realize I had written a play. I only intended to do it one-night-only, because I wasn't ready to say all these things out loud in proud on a stage in front of an audience.

Over the years enough people insisted I do something with the show and that they wanted to see it again.

So here you go! Instead of mounting a full production of the show here in New York this summer, I'm releasing this online as a virtual theatrical event!

This show is deeply personal, and definitely not appropriate for young audiences as it contains strong language and themes including sex and drug use.

There is (FINALLY!) a new episode of Big Fat Vegan Radio! And as you might imagine, after all this buildup... it's gonna be a long one!

Shablameo Order Form

You know how some of your favorite drag queens are out of work? Well here's a way to support your queen and give the perfect gift to a loved one (or a loathed one!)

I'm filming these on Sunday, so you can get one week delivery without paying the $20 rush fee!

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! Since I'm trying to cover an overdraft in my checking account and avoid a slew of fees, if you order within the next 32 minutes (before 9pm Eastern) you can get THREE shout-outs for the price of TWO!

(.....sighhhhhh! That's right.)

Honey LaBronx, The Vegan Drag Queen

Honey LaBronx, The Vegan Drag Queen

This weekend I will be back in drag to teach a private online cooking class. Don't worry, as soon as I'm ready to do these publicly I'll be announcing details.

As long as I'm in face, here's your chance to order a #SHABLameo for that special someone in your life, here's your chance to order them with FREE rush delivery (normally an extra $20).

If you'd like to wish someone a happy birthday, tell someone to keep up their spirits and keep fighting, parent your child, or very lovingly and gently break up with someone (or ask them out), what a better way to do it than with a personalized drag queen video?

Shablameo Order Form

It's that time... I'm filming some content this week, so that means -- I'll be recording personalized video greetings!

My website is still down, but in the mean time I made this rinky-dink page where you can place an order online for your SHABLameo greetings!

https://sites.google.com/site/shablameo/

Make sure to have your orders in by the end of the day Wednesday so that I can get your video to you within the week!

(Forget the $45 order option for rush delivery on my page - since I'll be in the studio recording, everyone can get rush delivery for the normal price, just $25!)

Cali Cafe Explosion! Diana and Hernan need help!, organized by Mihla Mauricio

I'm sharing this again because the first time I shared it, we got a good number of responses and donations. But then about 24 hours passed with no response, and we still have a long way to go if we are going to help my friend recover and rebuild Cozumel's only vegan restaurant which was lost several days ago in an explosion.

Please give anything you can, even if you feel it isn't enough even to justify donating. Even if it's a dollar, it's appreciated.

And please, please share this as much as you can!

Whether you're a fellow animal rights activists, whether you believe in strong female entrepreneurship, or even if you have ever had that one friend in your life who means the world to you, and for whom no length is ever too far to go.

Diana is that person to me. If you've ever wanted to show your appreciation for me or my work, I am asking you show it to me by showing it to Diana and Hernán of Cali Cafe in Cozumel!

We are raising money for Diana and Hernan, a young recently married … Mihla Mauricio needs your support for Cali Cafe Explosion! Diana and Hernan need help!

10/16/2020

I know a lot of people.

I've eaten at a lot of vegan restaurants which I consider to be among my favorites.

Even among the hundreds of people out there who have been touched my heart, Diana Fragoso STILL and always will have a place at the very tip-top of that list. If you know her, you know exactly what I mean and you likely feel the same about her.

So naturally, when she and her husband Hernán moved to Cozumel to open the island's only 100% vegan restaurant, of COURSE it was above and beyond.

I visited Cali Café with my friend Chris Fernandez and in one week we ate every single item on the menu. Every single item on the menu was so good we couldn't believe it. I almost found myself laughing at each meal because I just couldn't believe how good it was!

Earlier this week, I got the news that their restaurant had an explosion. Everything was lost. All four walls, the roof, all their equipment - gone. And there was damage to the surrounding buildings and a car parked across the street. They are financially responsible for all of it.

Diana and Hernán hold bake sales to help fundraise for causes in their community. They rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home stray dogs. They employ their family as a way of helping to support them, and because of COVID, they have been struggling just to get by.

On top of all of that -- their restaurant explodes.

I share a lot of people's fundraisers. I donate often to help others. I've spent years touring with my show raising funds for over a hundred different organizations.

This time - I am personally asking you to help these people. I would consider it a personal favor. They are already off to a good start, having raised nearly 20% of their goal in just two days.

I need for them to experience how loving and generous the world can be. I need for this to show them how, in the face of absolutely anything, no matter the circumstances, ANYTHING is STILL possible even when it seems all hope is lost.

Please donate whatever you can, EVEN if it's only $2 to show them that there's one more person out there who cares!

Please, PLEASE share this with your friends and family so that more people can have an opportunity to get to be generous and feel helpful in causing a miracle for someone else.

And please remember: you already know that whatever love you put into this, it will return to you tenfold!

How to melt cheese restaurant style!

MICROWAVE:
Place your item (with cheese on top) on a plate in the microwave and add a small bowl of water. Nuke for 1 minute.

STOVE:
After cooking, add cheese to the top of your item and turn the flame down to medium low. Take a small bowl of water and splash some around the edges of the pan and slam the lid on to trap the steam. Wait about 30 seconds or so before checking.

AND THEN:
Go make sure you're subscribed to Big Fat Vegan Radio and if you like it, throw the podcast a few bucks!

Hey Ben and Laura, I'm trying to download some of your podcasts via the rss feed and none of them will download. They all die at around 20% or lower. Alas, I'm on a linux pc so itunes does not work for me. An rss feed is the only way I get to subscribe to any podcasts I enjoy. So please, Help Me Obi-Wan, you're my only hope!
I'm behind on podcasts, so I just listened to Episode 96, and love it so much. I burst out laughing during the conversation about cigarettes. You still got it.
