About Ian McD

I'm a British new media person with a passion for radio, and interested in the kind of stories best told when we see humans as part of the world of animal minds. I blogged about why I'm producing The Vegan Option.

    Thanks for having both the insight and initative to create this show. You are covering topics which are exceptionally impportant and typically get little media attention and doing so with style and courage. You have my admiration for doing so. The vegan community needs an international rally point and a voice which reaches out to those isolated by distance or culture. Your should may help us become more united and cohesive as a pan-contentinal community.

      Thank you for the kind words! The appreciation is what keeps me motivated.

      I think the show has found a niche – the intersection of journalism and animal ethics – where there isn’t much content at the moment. (Other than, of course, some fantastic documentary films.)

      Fortunately, the Internet makes it easier for vegans to find each other and form a community, particularly for the vegans who are – as you say – isolated by distance.

      I think understanding the history of vegetarianism is particularly important in helping the people who are isolated by culture (thinking of the episode about Arab vegan Al-Ma’arri). I have big plans for a series covering the history of vegetarianism that I’ll blog about soon.
