Episode 74 features vegan advocate and author Kathy Divine.
Kathy, from Sydney, Australia, has been vegan for 9 years and vegetarian for 12 years before that. She speaks with ARZone about her latest book, Plant Powered Men. We ask her about how she chose those who contributed to the book, why she feels that it's important that a book about veganism focus on men, and what she learned in the process of interviewing 38 vegan men from around the globe. Audio podcast, approx. 19 mins.
Kathy’s mission is to share the benefits of the vegan lifestyle with as many people as possible, and to help empower others toward making compassionate decisions.
In 2009 Kathy started an interview-based blog – vegansarecool.com - where she presents the views of other vegans from around the planet.
In 2011 she published two books – Forever 21 and Vegans Are Cool. In 2012, she launched the Vegan of the Year Awards.
