Informative and inspired!

The host skillfully coaxes inspired and actionable intelligence from her guests. Highly recommend this podcast for anyone seeking in-depth interviews with the Rock Stars of the vegan/plant based movement.

Vigilant Vegan ,

Interview with Jeffery Mason

No animals shed tears ?!! Really ?!! Where have you been , Mr. Mason ?!! Animals shed tears. I’ve seen it several times in my life. My cats shed tears . No it’s not a misinterpretation on my part. What expertises do you really have. I’ve wanted to read your books for a long time but after hearing you on this podcast I think I’ll pass. And you , dear host; you sit there agreeing with him on many of his biased and dismissive opinions about cats and other animals. What a shame !!

Tyler I hate this app ,

Love this Vegan Podcast

She does a great job of finding unique interesting guests. While many of the vegan podcasts have many of the same guests, Elysabeth goes off the beaten path to find us really interesting stories we have not heard before.
