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!

What if DefaultVeg was the norm? Professor, Founder of Farm Forward and DefaultVeg and Co-Author of the Eating Animals screenplay and collaborator with Jonathan Safran Foer, Dr. Aaron Gross joins me on the Plantbased Business Hour. We discuss the lack of social distancing in factory farms, how they are breeding grounds for Pandemics -Swine Flu and Asian Bird Flu- and the oppression of animals, workers and farmers by multinational "farming" corporations. We also discuss the disempowerment of consumers by the system that supports these wealthy corporations with subsidies and legal protections at the expense of all of our health and well-being. Are you angry yet? Hold on...there's a solution: DEFAULT VEG! For more info, visit and SUPPORT with Patreon: .
