Listen back to #VeganHour Live
This is what happened on April 15th when Melissa “Ms Cupcake” Morgan and I went live on Resonance 104.4FM during #VeganHour. Our conversation ran from accidentally vegan Beef and Tomato Flavour Pot Noodles to running vegan businesses. Vegan registered dietitian Marty Davey even phoned in to answer questions that had come up on Twitter.
Melissa Morgan (“Ms Cupcake”)
Ms Cupcake is a vegan baker and media personality, the author of “The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town” cookbook, and winner of the British Baker 2011 “Rising Star” award. Her bakery is in the gentrifying south London suburb of Brixton, well within the Resonance 104.4 FM broadcast area.
Marty Davey RD
Marty Davey is a Pennsylvania-based registered dietitian, and vegan. A former actress, she presents nutrition information and cookery lessons in the glamorous 1950s persona “La Diva Dietitian”. She phoned in from the USA.
Mary-Anne owns Heavenly Organics Skin Care and co-ordinates the #VeganHour Twitter chat along with Graham and Rush of VeganChatRoom. You can join #VeganHour weekly at 19:00 London Time (which might be 19:00 or 20:00 GMT, depending whether the UK is on daylight savings time that week).
I’ve decided not to include this in the podcast feed – as a first try in a new format, even the rough edits are more polished! This is not a reflection on the guests; it’s just as a pilot for a different kind of show, the need to juggle social media, upcoming guests, and presenting did rather tell. If there are any future live shows, they might be included.
Update 2 Feb 2015
Updated to point to the recording of the episode on Archive.org instead of the Resonance FM catchup service on Soundcloud.
