Kickstarting History: 77% reached, 7 days left
I’m humbled by the support for the Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund Vegetarianism: The Story So Far. With just seven days left, it’s 77% funded. It’s nearly there – but if it doesn’t hit the target, it does not get funded.
Please go to the Kickstarter page to discover some amazing rewards. It’s also being heavily featured in other vegan blogs and podcasts – from Go Vegan with Bob Linden to the Jewish Vegetarian Society. So please have a look at the Kickstarter video, read more about the project and help make history. Or, as Tanya from Progressive Kitch podcast puts it: know your roots.
You can read so much more about it on the Kickstarter project page, which is being updated as the campaign progresses. If you’re reading this, you probably listen to podcasts: so I thought you might want to know about my appearances on other shows.
The support from the vegan community has been amazing. Kip the Messy Vegetarian Cook blogged that it was “to put it bluntly, a really neat project”; food swap blog All About Vegan Food invited readers to “help history come to life”; and the UK’s Jewish Vegetarian society said it was “fantastic to support independent journalism and help raise awareness”.
I’ve also been on the other side of the microphone (and the other side of the pond)! Bob Linden interviewed me on his US GCN network show “Go Vegan Radio” (at 24 minutes) about The Vegan Option’s invasion of mainstream radio; as has Alice Armstrong of SoundArt (an art radio station in the west of England) interviewed me. And Tanya and Dawn interviewed me all about the project (as well as various tangents about US and British history) on Episode 12 of their podcast Progressive Kitch.
The story has also been picked up by:
- Cookie von Stir, aka Els Merry-Price (“A full history in such an accessible format would be a fascinating and enormously useful resource, and with the power of Kickstarter it’s possible to get in at beginning of what’s going to be an epic journey.”)
- LA-based news blog “Of Course Vegan”
