Kickstart the Radio History of Vegetarianism

Researching the history of vegetarianism, I quickly realised it was a much bigger and more exciting story than could fit into a couple of episodes. It needs a full on series, of at least ten episodes, full of interesting characters and amazing twists. To tell it properly is a much bigger project than The Vegan Option has ever done before. I can’t do it without you.

So, for the first time, I’m offering you the chance to get financially involved by backing Vegetarianism: The Story So Far on Kickstarter. I’m offering some great thank you gifts – such as a postcard from one of the places where the story unfolded. Go to the project page to discover more, watch the video (with a glimpse of what the Vegan Option “studio” actually looks like), and help make history.

If this is funded, it will be a resource for vegetarians, vegans, and curious omnivores for many years. So it would be a pity if it wasn’t.
