No-one can keep up with all the vegan videos and podcasts that are coming out!

I’d love to be able to download a regular sample of vegan content – like the “Best of the Left” podcast, or BBC Radio 4’s “Pick of the Week”. It would gives everyone even remotely interested in vegan stuff a taste of what they might be missing.

I don’t currently have time for another project. But in the hope that someone else will like this idea and run with it, I’m summing up the six things that would, I hope, make this work. Interested? Please say in the comments.

The Vegan Option

December 7, 2012

We’ve been producing The Vegan Option for over a year, and covered an amazing range of topics – lab meat, judging people, vegan childhoods – and interviewed some really interesting people – Benjamin Zephaniah, Vegan MPs, Peter Singer, Gary Francione.

I’ve come back to say I’ve got no plans to update this site, and to welcome you to The Vegan Option for really interesting radio that just happens to be vegan.

Thank you for sharing my first foray into podcasting, and I hope you’ll join Diana and I at The Vegan Option if you haven’t already.

As tweeted, I have spent some time with climate campaigners. I hope the tweets gave a hint of the atmosphere. This is about why I was there, and why I will not be making a podcast about it.

Tell Bill what to do next

September 13, 2009

Would you tune into a monthly show of London-centred news and interviews? Or would a magazine of the best vegan-related audio from around the web be more fun? What would keep enticing you back?

Interviewing people and recording things on the road was a bit of a challenge. For those interested, here is what I used and what I thought of it.
