I enjoy this podcast and the show but the inconsistency in the recent episodes has made it hard to listen. I do find it odd that a vegan podcast uses Burger King as a sponsor, started listening to the most event podcast after listening to an ad for chicken fries, it doesn't make sense.

Always postive and cheerful!!

I love Laura's radio show. She always has a positive and cheerful attitude, and I learn something new from each broadcast. Her guests range from vegan members of the musical community, to vegan authors and nutritional experts. Dr. Pamela Popper is a semi-regular guest and has plenty of useful nutirtional information to share. I only wish I could get Laura's TV show where I live.

Rank #3: Forks over Knives, with Brian Wendel and Lee Fulkerson

Podcast cover
Read more
Host, Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian,  hears about the groundbreaking feature film, “Forks over Knives,” which examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. See a clip here. The film opens in theatres on May 6th, 2011. The storyline traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. I’ll talk with Brian Wendel, Creator and Executive Producer of the film and Lee Fulkerson, Writer and Director. I’ll also welcome Dr. Pam Popper, who appears in the film. Brian Wendel has had a long-time interest in nutrition and health. In the summer of 2008, he read The China Study, by T. Colin Campbell and realized that the scientific case that a whole foods plant-based diet could prevent, and even reverse, disease was greater than he had ever imagined. Brian decided the most effective way to bring this message to a broad audience was by feature film. His vision was that it be based on the science and provide a moving experience by exploring personal stories and historical elements. Lee Fulkerson has written, produced, directed or supervised nearly 170 hours of documentary programming, and has won 19 international awards for his work. These include the prestigious Cine Special Jury Award for Best Broadcast Historical Program. Lee wrote Seven Signs of the Apocalypse, a 2-hour documentary special for History Channel. Lee also wrote or produced 11 episodes of the Biography series for A&E.
