Archived shows (2015-2018) at: vegansradio.wordpress.com and WCUW.org/vegannation Interviews with Vegan author,  JoAnn Farb, and her activist daughter, Sarina Farb, in Kansas on January 12, 2018.  On Jan. 19th, is the broadcast of the interview with Kansas activists, Christina Marie (Mitchell) and Darren Lara   (Attebery), a Vegan couple.  Thank you for caring enough to hear and be heard.


JoAnn Farb is a former microbiologist with a global pharmaceutical company, who became vegan over twenty five years ago because of that job.  She is also the parent of two life-long (now grown-up) vegan daughters, author of one of the first vegan parenting books ever published: Compassionate Souls — Raising the Next Generation to Raise the World, and will soon be publishing her third book which will explain why the issue of gluten is so critical to the vegan movement.  She lectures nationally on parenting, veganism, healthy aging and gluten.

  • Sarina is a life-long vegan and second generation activist with a passion for making the world a better place. She speaks publicly and has published essays about growing up vegan and dealing with “pushback” to veganism.  Sarina previously worked with Tribe of Heart as the International Liaison, helping to make the award-winning animal films The Witness and Peaceable Kingdom: The journey Home understandable and accessible to people in as many cultures as possible.  In addition to speaking about veganism, Sarina is currently a math and science tutor, and hopes to pursue a PhD in education with the goal of rethinking science curricula to include a better discussion of ethics in science. Sarina also founded AACT, a vegan group at Grinnell College, where she earned degrees in biochemistry and policy studies.
