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.

EP29 Show Notes!

This is how I know I’m pretty much busier than ever:  I opened this page to start writing my blog post over four hours ago.  Every once in a while I’d click back to see how far along I was (blank page every time) and then forget about it entirely when something else came up.

Seriously, it just happened again.  There was a 30 minute break between the last paragraph and this one. 

And another 45 minutes between these two.  FOCUS, RED.  FOCUS!

…Ok, now it’s about 48 hours since I started this blog post, and I’m even more zombie-fied than I was in the first place.  Let’s just get to these show notes before I melt into my computer, yes?

BUT FIRST!  CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the Red Radio Ticket Giveaway for The Seed: A Vegan Experience!

I can’t wait to see you all there!

EP23 Show Notes!

You know what’s cute?  JL Fields, the vegan advocate/blogger/WFAS Board Member/social media darling/superwoman with whom I chatted on Episode Twenty Three of Red Radio, told me she was NERVOUS to hear herself speak on the show.  HOW CUTE IS THAT?!  Especially considering the woman is a total powerhouse and a true inspiration (there’s that word again…).  She was amazing, was she not?!  

Also, in “What A Coinky-dink!” News - have you heard EP120 of the Our Hen House Podcast, hosted by Seed Advisory Board Members Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan?  They featured a brief segment about The Seed: A Vegan Experience.  So that means I featured them, and they featured me, all in the same week without any previous knowledge.  I’m telling you, our stars must be aligned!

Alright, enough gab.  Onward to the Show Notes!

Oh man, I’m pretty pooped.  Did I forget anything?  Let me know if I did!

EP23: Meet The Ladies of The Seed – Featuring a Chat with JL Fields!

If someone had approached me a year ago and said, “What’s crackin’, Red…one year from now you’re totally going to be working with a team of major vegan bigwigs to create the biggest vegan show NYC has ever seen”, I’d be all “GTFOH, son!”.  Seriously, I’d probably slap you for being so ridiculous, too.  

That’s not very nice of me. 

On the real, though…here I am!  The Seed: A Vegan Experience is just over a month away and I’m SUPER blessed to be working amongst some of my vegan idols on such a big event.  Wanna get to know some of them a little better?  You totally do!  Give Episode Twenty Three a listen!

In Red Radio Episode Twenty-Three, Erin Red introduces us to the inspiring team of women behind The Seed: A Vegan Experience!  In an earnest interview with JL Fields (JL Goes VeganStop Chasing Skinny, etc.), we learn about JL’s incredible journey to veganism and activism post-40.  And in the latest installment of The Compassionate Clip of the Week, we’re introduced to two powerhouse vegan women: Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan of Our Hen House.  The kicker?  All three amazing women have joined The Seed’s advisory board!  Have you reserved your tickets yet?!  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.
