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.


EP30 Show Notes!

Holy Vegan Cannoli, guys… RED RADIO EPISODE THIRTY!  THIRTY!!!!  I can barely believe it.  

So I apologize for this post arriving so late in the game, but there have been some seriously serious developments in the life of Erin Red over the past week or so.  I am not at liberty to divulge just yet, but stay tuned…I will likely make some announcements in EP31 and beyond, and will obviously be blogging along with that.  It shouldn’t come as any surprise to anyone…I’m not one to keep my mouth shut about much, let alone about myself.  


I was so thrilled to speak to James Costa in EP30 - he’s such a genuinely wonderful person and his film is going to break tons of ground.  And I think you can tell by the endless gabbing about The Seed: A Vegan Experience that I had such an amazing time!  Let’s get right to the show notes, si?

And of course, Philip Wollen's devastatingly beautiful presentation - the best argument for veganism I have ever heard.  

Now, I’m pretty darn sure I’ve forgotten about a TON of stuff I said I’d post…so please, let me know if that’s the case.  My brain is a little fried right now!  And I will be posting a special blog early next week featuring my photos from The Seed - check back!

EP31 is coming up soon - get ready for the awesome!

EP30: ‘Lunch Hour’ Director James Costa & a Massive Recap of The Seed!

It’s good to be back, y’all!  I mean it, it does!  Obviously I missed you - otherwise I wouldn’t have rambled on for hours in Episode Thirty of Red Radio.  Seriously, I just started gabbing and…next thing I knew…longest show ever.  Maybe this makes you super happy; maybe it sincerely irritates you.  In either case, it’s not like it happens all that often so COOL IT!

How completely fantastic is James Costa? The answer is ENTIRELY COMPLETELY FANTASTIC.  He was gracious enough to chat with me while staying at (vegan paradise) The Wynn in Las Vegas, promoting his epic documentary Lunch Hour.  Have you watched the trailer yet?  You totally should.  

Red Radio returns after a week’s hiatus with an extended Episode Thirty!  First off, Erin Red has the pleasure of chatting with director and advocate James Costa about his groundbreaking new film, Lunch Hour, and his feelings on activism, veganism, and the future of health in the US. Next up, an enthusiastic journey through the whirlwind weekend that was The Seed: A Vegan Experience!  Erin Red shares every delicious detail and unapologetically brag about her brand new Vitamix!  Plus a very special Compassionate Clip of the Week – what a jam packed episode!!!  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.
