Welcome to the Viva! Vegan Podcast.

Welcome to the Viva! Vegan Podcast. Our monthly podcast and minisode are about all things vegan! We feature fascinating interviews with vegan celebrities and thought leaders, give you all the latest news from Viva! and chat about anything making vegan headlines.

Dec 1, 2018

Plenty to enjoy and celebrate in this year-end episode, especially with our deliciously vegan Xmas Recipe Guide. Speaking of guides, podcast host Kris Townsend is joined by voices from across the Viva! team to talk vegan food for non-vegans, 3 (Christmas) cheers for awesome festive recipes, Anonymous for the Voiceless, and music from Melody Causton. There's also a Scary Dairy update with animal rights campaigner Dina Aherne and a vegan active wear clothing recommendation from Kris. (Yes, you did read that correctly). A great way to wrap up the year and get ready for the next!
