My name is Erin, but everyone calls me Red and that's just fine with me.

I'm a certified VLCE and Vegan Nutrition Specialist, fitness professional, public speaker, writer, consultant, kitchen wrangler, problem solver, host of the popular vegan podcast Red Radio, and right-hand-woman to vegan Wunderkind Chef Jay Astafa. I also co-founded The Seed in 2012, and continue to organize events across North America.

By night I'm a muay Thai practitioner, runner, Bikram Yogini, and tattoo collector. I share my pad with a vegan human, a vegan dog, and two carnivorous cats… all rescued. I hail from Toronto, Canada but Brooklyn, NYC is home.

I hustle. Hard.

Try to keep up.

EP32: The Sexy Vegan Takes Over Red Radio!

You know, I get to chat with a lot of pretty amazing vegan folks through Red Radio, and never once have I been like “Man, what a total douche so-and-so was”.  In fact, I can honestly say that I’ve been downright impressed with how awesome people have been, and how much fun it’s been to get to know them through my podcast.  

That said, every once in a while I chat with a vegan that could EASILY be my lifelong BFF.  Like, KISMET man.  I don’t think I need to tell you that Brian L. Patton is one of these people.  What a freaking talent this dude is!  Hilarious, creative, compassionate, talented, and let’s face it - the man is a veritable encyclopedia of Dick Jokes.  His Fiancee must be all, “WIN!”.

On the real, though - go check out his YouTube Videos and pick up The Sexy Vegan Cookbook.  But not before listening to Red Radio Episode Thirty Two!

In jaw-droppingly sexy Red Radio Episode Thirty Two, Erin Red spends some time getting to know Brian L. Patton, also known as The Sexy Vegan!  Light some candles and slip into something more comfortable as we learn about Brian’s vegan journey – including his enlightening ‘spider moment’ – his popular YouTube clips, proper techniques for making out with one’s dog, and the epic release of his scandalously delicious new cookbook, The Sexy Vegan Cookbook: Extraordinary Food from an Ordinary Dude!  Plus in this week’s Steamed Veggies segment, Erin Red reveals why she’s not so thrilled about the latest news on phasing out gestation crates.  Please consider supporting Red Radio by visiting erinred.com and clicking the DONATE button, and subscribe to Red Radio on iTunes today!  If you love what you hear, leave a glowing review, or drop Erin Red a line at erinredradio@gmail.com.  You can also read her blog at erinred.tumblr.com, and find her on Facebook and Twitter @erinred.

Oh, and I totally know I didn’t post the show notes from EP31 - I’ll post them along with EP32’s later this week.  And trust me, once this announcement is cleared for takeoff, you’ll understand the delay!
ANTICIPATION!

EP31: Real Talk with Vegan Superstar Ari Solomon!

Honestly, guys…never a dull moment.  There’s a quote from one of my favorite songs, Extraordinary Machine by Fiona Apple, that goes…

…but I’m good at being uncomfortable so I can’t stop changing all the time.

Best explanation ever.  I’m often overwhelmed by how quickly my life moves…but it’s definitely exhilarating and dammit, I’m good at it.  And so it goes.

I know, I’m being super hipster-cryptic right now - I’ll stop.  But know that big announcements are coming up (aren’t they always?) and have faith that forward is the only direction I know.  Seriously.  Ask my boxing coaches and muay Thai Kru.

Red Radio Episode Thirty One is one of my favorites so far.  I had such a great time chatting with vegan advocate and animal activist Ari Solomon - he and I are definitely kindred spirits and it was awesome to learn about his world.  I also included a particularly biting Compassionate Clip of the Week to rev your engines a little bit.  You know how I do!

Erin Red interviews her friend and vegan superstar Ari Solomon in Red Radio Episode Thirty One!  Vegan advocate, animal and human rights activist, and President of vegan candle company A Scent of Scandal, Ari shares his path to veganism and activism in his usual hysterical fashion.  Hear about Ari’s humble New Jersey beginnings, his vegan moment of clarity, his marriage to husband Mikko Alanne, and his passion for justice for all species!  Plus, a truly outspoken Compassionate Clip of the Week!  Please consider supporting Red Radio by visiting erinred.com and clicking the DONATE button, and subscribe to Red Radio on iTunes today!  If you love what you hear, leave a glowing review, or drop Erin Red a line at erinredradio@gmail.com.  You can also read her blog at erinred.tumblr.com, and find her on Facebook and Twitter @erinred.

EP9 Show Notes!

What’s crackin’, y’all?!

I’m getting so much amazing feedback already from Red Radio EP9…I was more ‘myself’ in this episode than ever before, so I’m glad to hear you guys are on my wavelength for the most part!  I finally feel like I’m starting to relax in front of the microphone and I’m glad to be finding my feet.  I’ll need ‘em; there’s a ton of amazing stuff coming up very soon.  Eee!

Alright, on to the show notes:

That’ll just about do it for this week, kids.
