And they'll be airing the episode later today -- Tuesday, February 1 at 4:00pm.
See how fast resolutions can work? Snort. No, I can't take any credit as obviously this show has been a while in the making and I haven't even gotten caught up with commenting on blog entries (yours and mine), let alone contacting people in TV land, but I'm stoked that Oprah is paying attention to the issue. What I like even more is that this episode has already generated over 200 comments and nearly 17,000 Facebook likes and it hasn't even aired yet! Clearly, this is getting a lot of attention.
Not sure how I feel about Michael Pollan, but I like Kathy Freston, despite the serious flak she's gotten from fellow vegans for not pushing people to go 100% vegan overnight. My take though is that she has probably reached more folk who otherwise would not even have heard of veganism, let alone try to incorporate it into their lives, and perhaps her more patient approach is more effective in the long run. At any rate, I'm looking forward to watching this and will have a follow-up post as soon as I can!
