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!

On this episode of Awesome Vegans, I'm over the moon to be in the company of Rachel Barton Pine, a world renown violinist and vegan. With over 30 CDs to her credit,  Rachel has played in concert halls all around the world. She is also the founder of the RBP Foundation.

When people think about vegans, perhaps they think about hippies and extremists.  Rachel blows that stereotype to smithereens, showing that all sorts of people can be vegan. As she tackles the world music industry and takes on the demanding life of an internationally traveling and performing violinist, her vegan regime enables her to maintain the stamina she needs.  All the while, she is also showing her daughter how to live a vegan life. 

Join me as Rachel Barton Pine and I talk about the negative impacts of animal agriculture and how going vegan can actually help our planet and our health. Also, listen as Rachel performs three times, playing multiple genres of music and even a duet with her daughter, with passion, ferver and exquisite grace that is quintessential Rachel Barton Pine.
