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.


EP20: Andy Tabar from Compassion Co Talks Vegan Biz!

Hey Party People!

Totally crazy to me that I’m up to Episode Twenty already, y’all.  F’reals.  Bonkers.

Anywho, this week I had a blast chatting with Andy Tabar from Compassion Co about the ins and outs and all abouts of running a small vegan business.  He’s a heck of a dude with a heck of a heart and I’m so glad he could be a part of Red Radio!

On top of that, I break some awesome news about The Seed and share a Compassionate Clip of the Week featuring my vegan hero, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau!  WOWZA!

Holy Cow, Episode Twenty already!  Erin Red interviews Andy Tabar, founder of kickass vegan messagewear company Compassion Co., on the trials and adventures in starting and running a small vegan business, the fair-trade/vegan connection, and his journey to veganism.  EP20 also features an update on the latest happenings at The Seed: A Vegan Experience and an especially poignant Compassionate Clip of the Week! 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.

EP8 Show Notes (Finally!)

Hey Bulls & Heifers!

I’m *ahem* borrowing some wi-fi tonight to finally post the all-important show notes for Red Radio EP8.  As I’ve mentioned on Twitter, I have been receiving some very fired-up emails from so many of you about my views on veganism.  No offense taken at all - I’m THRILLED to be making so many of you think so hard about what it means to be vegan and as always I make no apologies for my truths.  That being said, rest assured I will address this topic and more on next week’s show.

Alright, on with the show notes!

My New Red Radio Reporters!

Two Super Awesome Tech Dudes I LOVE!

  • Luke Radl (my ever-so-gracious & devastatingly talented website dude)
  • Christ Priest (my blindingly generous & melodically gifted music dude)

Vegan Messagewear!

Also, I’m at the tail end of Day Three of my organic raw juice cleanse and feeling SPECTACULAR!  I worked all day, trained muay Thai for 2 hours, ran 5 (very chilly) miles, and taught a conditioning class…and I’m simply buzzing with clear, clean energy right now.  Life is good!  If you’re interested in information about the cleanse I’m on, check out The Juice Press Online for tons of amazing information, juice porn and much, much more.  

Stay tuned for EP9 and beyond, y’all. 

Big things poppin’,
