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!

I like to think of Gene Baur, Co-Founder and President of the Farm Sanctuary in New York State and the Los Angeles area, as the original. Despite not being the first animal activist, who else has funded their sanctuary by selling veggie dogs out of the back of their VW van at a Grateful Dead concert? Classic! 

Gene is more than just dedicated and devoted to bettering the lives of animals. He is also a wealth of knowledge about how to fix our ailing animal agriculture-based food supply system that has left the environment depleted and our health in question. Gene has solutions, and a new take on tradition. For example, since we don't need meat to survive, consider adopting a Turkey this Thanksgiving rather than eating one! Visit for info. 

Gene also has a great book, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life!  You can try the Audible version of this book with a 30-day free trial by visiting

As Gene says, he's not anti-business and he's not anti-farmer, he's anti-cruelty. And who can't get behind that?! Listen in and for more information, visit
