This past Sunday, I was listening to "Selected Shorts" and heard a science fiction story I wasn't familiar with. Does anyone know the Philip Dick story, "Beyond Lies the Wub"? It was published in 1952, and I was surprised by the veg sensibility it has. Here's the link--"Beyond Lies the Wub" begins roughly 25% into the hour. I found the following at a Philip Dick fan site: "...Dick wrote that he saw the wub as exhibiting 'the deeper traits that I associate with humanity: not a biped with an enlarged cortex -- a forked radish that thinks, to paraphrase the old saying -- but an organism that is human in terms of its soul.... It has to do with empathy, or as it was called in earlier times, caritas or agape.'"
Speaking of public radio, I'm a fan of This American Life, and I heard that Ira Glass went vegetarian after interviewing United Poultry Concerns' Karen Davis. Here's the YouTube video of him telling David Letterman the story.
