    Articles About Beer You Should Stop Reading Immediately

    A list of eight beers “you should stop drinking immediately” went around earlier last year and even ended up in my inbox a few times, but I didn’t imagine something so silly could have serious traction among the pretty geeky and science-savvy scene that is the craft beer drinking community.

    Why Vegan Values are Humanist Values

    A couple weeks ago, I gave a presentation to the Humanist Community of Central Ohio about “Why Vegan Values are Humanist Values.” It was a pretty laid back presentation that I had a lot of fun giving.

    Ask Surly Amy: Vegan, Vegetarian and Pescatarian Diets

    Dear Surly Amy, I’m trying to find non-biased sources on health, longevity, etc, related to Vegan/Vegetarian/Pescetarian diets, but am having an incredibly hard time finding any article online that isn’t teeming with bias (Vegan websites are super biased, btw).
