Found this podcast by accident and was an immediate fan. Totally inspiring and a great way for vegans to unite, the guest are empowering and always giving great advice and sharing inspirational ideas and stories.
Best discovery I’ve made while searching for a podcast.
PS: 5/5/21 Thank you Karina🙏 I’m humbled to be mentioned on your amazing podcast.
Karina and team are terrific
I found the NBSV podcast while I was tiptoeing around being vegan curious and I was really intrigued by the myth busting element. I have since learned to appreciate the rest of her topics, her style, her lack of advertising, and the rest of her team. If you are new to veganism and need to have info at the ready for concerned loved ones or if you are a veteran just looking for some good discussion, I highly recommend.
Probably the best vegan pod
It’s good, informative and generally fun. She’s not trying to sell you anything, Helps me in my day to day living, and the host plays accordion!
