223: Eat No Evil (Foods)

Sadrah has never actually eaten meat. Mike was in the punk scene, where “compassion to all” was a popular mantra. Together, after struggling to find plant-based meat sources that were as sustainable as they were tasty, they came up with No Evil Foods; the plant-based meat alternative company that first debuted at a tiny Farmer’s Market in Asheville, NC.

Today, No Evil Foods is available coast-to-coast and leads the pack as the most environmentally sustainable plant-based meats on the market!

221: The Coolest Guy in SEO

Are you looking to grow your vegan business? Kris Reid is the founder and CEO of Ardor SEO; the digital agency that increases search rankings for vegan and animal activism pages, with the goal of converting traffic to product sales, newsletter signups and awareness.

Kris has been known as the “Coolest guy in SEO”, but he hasn’t always had this reputation. He once studied software engineering at the Queensland University of Technology, and later found himself working in finance in London, England. When the financial crisis hit, he lost his job and headed back to Australia, which began the start of his interest in Search Engine Optimization, or SEO.

In this episode, Kris explains what SEO is and how we can use it to our advantage to grow our vegan businesses.

219: Little Green Forks

Dr. John Tanner suffered a heart attack while on a morning run when he was promptly rescued by a passerby. During his stay in the hospital, doctors treated him with a stent and told him he was able to now “resume life the way it was” with no direction on how he could lower his risk of a second cardiac arrest. Fortunately, this tragic situation prompted John to dive into the research of the WFPB diet and as a result, John has not had any recurrences of Heart Disease or related conditions!

In this episode, John shares his story, along with some pretty staggering statistics on the link between heart disease and diet.

215: Million Dollar Vegan & Veganuary

9 year old Vegan Evan has been making waves in the community for a few years now, but most recently his publicity has come from a collaboration with Million Dollar Vegan, where he asked President Trump to go vegan for the month of January in exchange for One Million Dollars to be donated to US Veterans. The campaign now offers $1 to charity for every person who pledges to go vegan for the month of January.

In addition to Evan’s campaign with MDV, Evan is the president of Animal Hero Kids, and has participated in multiple animal rescues with DxE, and has spoken in front of thousands of people.

In this podcast, Evan and his mom Shannon tell their story on how they went from just hearing about veganism, to what they’ve accomplished today.
