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.


EP57: You’re Not Hardcore Unless You Live Hardcore!

(“…are you gonna finish that?”)

"I believe you can love and care about animal welfare and still consume them." - Alex Jamieson

What, did you expect me to keep my mouth shut about this one?  C’mon, guys… you know me well enough by now.  No, I’m not going to be diplomatic.  Or passive, or forgiving, or even polite.  The way I look at it, why start now?

Red Radio Episode Fifty Seven is not to be missed, that’s for sure.  I tackle the Alexandra Jamieson scandal, and no matter which side of the fence you find yourself on, you’ll be sure to hear some pretty hard truths and some truly controversial opinions this week.  It was my honor to welcome Chloe Jo Davis (Girlie Girl Army), who revealed some behind the scenes info and shocking details about her now defunct friendship with Alex, Lara Yaz (Big Fat Vegan Radio) who shared her personal connection with the danger of the ‘cravings’ issue, and Sarah E. Brown (Queer Vegan Food), who went from peaceful to belligerent as the truths came forward.  

Like I said… not to be missed. 

The beans have been spilled in Red Radio Episode Fifty Seven:  Erin Red welcomes three brilliant, beautiful and ballsy vegan women to the show to discuss a rather controversial ex-vegan and her rather shocking blogs as of late.  Hear Lara Yaz (co-host of Big Fat Vegan Radio and Red Radio’s Entertainment Reporter), Sarah E. Brown (of Queer Vegan Food) and Chloe Jo Davis (trailblazer, wifey, mother of two vegan Princes and founder of GirlieGirlArmy) hash out the gory details in a no-holds-barred conversation about what it means to be vegan and so much more.  Plus, the latest in vegan headlines in The Vegan Scoop, and Erin Red pushes some buttons with the Compassionate Clip of the Week!  OH NO SHE DIDN’T!  Please consider supporting Red Radio by visiting Erin Red’s home base 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.

EP19 Show Notes!

Ok, ok…I promised it’d be out yesterday, but then that little thing called ‘Life’ got in the way…and here it is, the tail end of Wednesday, and Red still hasn’t pulled it together.  Shameful I tell you!  I hope y’all can forgive me. 

Here they are!  Show notes!  For EP19!  Ta DA!

I think…that’s it.  Am I forgetting something?  …I feel like I am.  Let me know if I am! 

Can’t wait for EP20!
