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.


EP27: A Conversation with Nargus; Vegan Athlete, Artist & Inspiration

I’m pretty pumped to have had the opportunity to chat with the lovely Nargus Harounzadeh for Red Radio Episode Twenty-Seven.  Aside from the pure wow-factor, I think we can all agree that the word ‘inspiring’ can be used enthusiastically in this case - I can’t wait to talk to her about my own fitness/nutrition goals!  And I’m SO EXCITED to see what she has in store for her live art exhibit at The Seed in a few weeks!  EEE!

And yeah, I got a little out of line with my rant on the human embarrassment that was the ‘Great’ GoogaMooga Festival.  I admit it.  And I don’t regret it.  (Also: Really?  A cartoon pig wearing sunglasses in the logo?  How far up asses do heads even go?)

Check it out!

In Episode Twenty-Seven, Erin Red interviews vegan artist, athlete, teacher, scholar and all-around superwoman Nargus Harounzedeh about her journey to veganism, her athletic and artistic prowess, and the unbelievable accident that changed her life forever.  Plus, Nargus and Red discuss her upcoming live art exhibit at The Seed: A Vegan Experience in June!  And the Steamed Veggies Segment makes a particularly snarky return as Erin Red waxes poetic about Brooklyn’s Googamooga Festival.  Remember:  Red Radio is 100% listener supported!  Please consider donating by visiting Erin Red and Red Radio at and clicking the DONATE button!  You can also read her blog at, and find her on Facebook and Twitter @erinred.
