Welcome everyone to my new podcast, Awesome Vegans with Elysabeth Alfano.  This podcast will feature in-depth interview with plant-based celebs, politicians, athletes, entrepreneurs, influencers, environmentalists, doctors, chefs, animal activists and so much more!  I am dedicated to exploring how certain individuals are making the world a better place for themselves, those around them, our environment and our animals through their food choices, practices and businesses. I really do believe that if we change what we eat, we change the world! Join me in my kitchen as I dish with the movers and shakers who are doing just that!

Actor/Director Joel Murray and I go back a few years, connected by our love of our hometown Chicago, Second City, Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs.   In fact, our ties are tight enough that this meat eater was willing to go long as I met the demand: make his favorite meat dish taste as if it had meat.  With a little help from Beyond Meat, I was up to the challenge!

Join us in my kitchen for this episode of Awesome Vegans in which Joel Murray and I make meatless Pasta Bolognese while talking sports, his brother Bill, his time with Jon Hamm on Mad Men, his years at Second City Chicago, plus his current work with Whose Live Anyway

Perhaps most importantly, we also talk cooking and drinking tips. How long should one REALLY cook pasta to get it 'al dente'? And what is Fernet Branca?  Listen in to hear classic meat eater Joel Murray wander into my meatless kitchen to dish on life, love, comedy, cooking and the Chicago Cubs. For the full effect, watch the video and get the recipe on .
