From 2010 to 2012 (when we were called the Vegetarian Network of Austin), we conducted several podcast interviews, in which we talked to members of the local Austin community who are active in environmentalism, health issues, animal rights and of course vegetarianism.
Scott Jurek, vegan ultramarathoner and author
A conversation with Scott Jurek after his book signing for his book Eat and Run at BookPeople on June 18th 2012. Scott spoke to us about his career, how being vegan has helped him, and what non-runners might get from reading his book.
Jamey Scott of DallasVegan.com and the Texas State Veggie Fairlatest issue of our newsletter.
Ross Abel of Vegans Rock Austin
Our sixth interview is a conversation with Ross Abel of Vegans Rock Austin. Abel spoke to us about the recent "vegan challenge" that he and some others from Vegans Rock took with Freebirds World Burrito, who were looking for feedback and input on adding more vegan ingredients to their menu.
Wayo Longoria of Casa de Luz
Our fifth interview is a conversation with Wayo Longoria of Casa de Luz. Longoria spoke to us about the current situation involving the City of Austin and their push to enforce the parking ordinance requirement of 50 spaces on them.
Rishi Dhir of Conscious Cravings
Our fourth interview is a conversation with Rishi Dhir, owner of Austin's newest vegetarian food trailer, Conscious Cravings. Dhir gave us the whole story on how his early beginnings in vegetarianism led to the vegan creations on his menu.
Daniela Nuñez of VegAustin.com
In our third interview, we had a long conversation with Daniela Nu–ez of Compassion Over Killing, who runs VegAustin.com, the great guide to vegetarian places, restaurants, and activities in Austin. We talked about the vegetarian community in Austin, its current state and what we can do to bring people together more and work together more. We talked so long in fact, we had to split the podcast in two!
