The entire motivation behind the creation and evolution of this podcast starts at the roots: my passion for veganism and animal rights. I am excited to broaden the vegan community’s spectrum by promoting veganism and abolition as the only ethical and healthful lifestyle choice. Of course I anticipate ‘converting’ many omnivores, however I also look forward to supporting animal causes and charities, organizing events and meetups, and encouraging a more active and PROactive vegan community in my vicinity and far beyond. From an outspoken and realistic standpoint, I plan to address and educate on a number of topics ranging from Veganism 101, to animal rights and abolition, to health and fitness, to environmentalism, to cooking, baking, and more. I will have guests from the activist community along with music, television and film personalities on the show, record on location at vegan hotspots, interview vegan ‘celebrities’ and include real stories with vegans of all walks of life. My goals are to educate, entertain, and enforce. To wake people up. And have an unreasonably good time doing so. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll learn…and you’ll stop drinking pus and eating rotted flesh! The HostI’m Erin, but everyone calls me Red and that’s just fine with me. I’ve been Vegan since 02/10/06 and it remains the best choice I ever made. I am also a muay Thai Fighter and Instructor, a Bikram Yogini, a runner, a Canadian, and I’m covered in tattoos. I share my home in Brooklyn with three cats and the man I love. Life is good.
