"Our backgrounds in print journalism helped us be able to trust ourselves, look at what we like and assume our readers like that too." [04:00]

"There's no way to post once a day with long stories unless you have a big team. The internet today requires that you have content constantly churning." [08:00]

--Monica Khemsurov on After the Jump

"We're still known for the content behind the images - so that's been nice. Even though we produce shorter stories [than we used to] they're still full of content." [09:00]

Adam Shprintzen discusses 19th Century vegetarianism in his book, The Vegetarian Crusade. This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio talks with Adam about the roots of meat abstention in the 19th Century with the British Bible Christians. How was vegetarianism related to the American Reform Movement and the murmurings of temperance? Tune into this episode to find out how the American Vegetarian Society organized disparaging groups of non-meat eaters. Have vegetarians faced vitriol throughout history? Learn how food entrepreneurs like Harvey Kellogg and Sylvester Graham helped spur on the spread of vegetarianism. What are the parallels between 19th Century vegetarianism and its form in the modern day? Find out all of this and more on this week's edition of A Taste of the Past! Thanks to our sponsor, Consider Bardwell. Music by Obey City.

"The 19th Century was not only a time when people were thinking about reform, but also a time when people were thinking about ways to live a better life. People were abstaining from alcohol, rethinking sexual relationships with the 'free love' movement... It only makes sense that people were also considering changing their diets." [6:00]

"Today, vegetarianism is marketed in a very personal way!" [31:25]
