The Pledge

We start our show at the beginning – when folk choose the vegan option. In this case, for a month, challenged and supported byLondon Vegan Campaigns. I talk to mother Ananthi and middle-aged couple Bryan and Cliff. What challenges will they come across? And will they last the month?

Diana has the statistics from three years of pledges, and finds out what makes people more or less likely to stay vegan. And she’s very surprised by what she finds.

So go on, press the play button. (Or, better still, subscribe via iTunes or your podcast catcher of choice.)

Our thanks to Ananthi, Bryan, Cliff, Lesley and our other contributors, and to London Vegan Campaigns for letting me record there and inviting Diana to analyse the data. Robb Masters wrote and composed our theme.

Other similar events, where vegan activists challenge and support pledgers to go vegan for a month, happen in BaltimoreandPhiladelphiain the US andVictoria, Australia. Colleen Patrick Goudreau has a book out on a similar theme, The 30-day Vegan Challenge.

I mentioned vegan podcasters Gary Francione and (should he return) Bob Torres.
