112: Vegan Journalist and Historian Avery Yale Kamila

Avery Yale Kamila is the long-running author of the Vegan Kitchen column in the Maine Sunday Telegram newspaper. In early 2020, just days before the pandemic lockdowns began, she discovered the clue which unearthed hundreds of years of buried history of vegetarianism in Maine.
