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 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  You can also read her blog at, and find her on Facebook and Twitter @erinred.
