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.

EP46: Veteran Activist Liz White Talks ‘Saving Dinah’ and More!

When I found out there was an upcoming feature film with vegan/AR themes I was excited enough - but once I discovered it’s entirely volunteer-made and produced by powerhouse animal activist Liz White, I was all “SNAP!”  Seriously, talk about a powerful production on behalf of the animals…'Saving Dinah' is bound to be a vegan classic. I can’t wait to see the film and I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to speak to Liz for Red Radio Episode Forty Six.  She was truly inspiring and really got me pumped to see Saving Dinah.  I know I’m not the only one!

What’s more?  The wonderful folks over at Saving Dinah were kind enough to blog about Red Radio and yours truly - check it out at SavingDinah.com!

In Red Radio Episode Forty Six, Erin Red is honored to speak to powerful animal and environmental activist Liz White of Animal Alliance Canada, who also happens to be the Executive Producer for an upcoming AR film called Saving Dinah!  Learn all about the community-produced feature film, as well as Liz’s nearly THIRTY years of important work on behalf of the animals.  What a powerhouse!  Plus, Erin Red raves about her favorite chocolate goodies, and drops some important knowledge about feral cat colonies.  Meow!  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.

EP39: Shootin’ the T.O.F.U. with Ryan Patey!

Well hey there dear friends and listeners, and friends who are listeners!  I’m finally catching up on some of these blogs - I know I say it often, but my schedule just keeps getting crazier and crazier, and it’s every minute that goes by it’s harder to manage my time.  I’m going to have to figure out a way to create an extra day in the week so I can get all these backed up things finished.  For real!  

Enough bitching - it’s kind of awesome that I’m blogging about Red Radio Episode Thirty Nine right now, because I’m sitting at Pearson International Airport in Toronto, waiting to fly back to NYC.  Sufficed to say, Canadians are pretty fantastic people.  Don’t believe me? Take a listen!  Ryan Patey will knock your socks off!  Srsly!

Grab a cup of (fair trade, almond milk) Hot Cocoa, put on your favorite (wool-free) flannel pajamas, hit mute on the hockey game, and tune into Red Radio Episode Thirty Nine!  Listen in as Erin Red has an in-depth, casual conversation with Ryan Patey of T.O.F.U. Magazine, everyone’s favorite digital vegan periodical.  Ryan and Red talk music, activism, feline YouTube sensations, PETA, authentic Canadiana, and much, much more – you’ll be all aboot it!  …and don’t pretend you’re not singing along with the outdo song.  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.
