Last month we told you about Ian McDonald’s grand vision: a popular history of vegetarianism through the ages, told through a free and easily accessible BBC-quality radio program. The only catch? Big plans need big funding. But in breaking news, this detail is no longer problematic: as of yesterday, crowd-funding for Vegetarianism: The Story So Far – A Radio History achieved success! So if you’re vegan, vegetarian, or veg-curious — or just a fan of both history and food — watch this space. The world’s first comprehensive vegetarian history radio project is officially underway!
The Vegan Option’s Ian McDonald just launched a Kickstarter project to fund his most ambitious project yet: The Story So Far: Vegetarianism — A Radio History. I had a chance to interview Ian recently, and am now completely excited about this brand-new radio project! It offers a something the veg movement has never before had: a complete, accessible, and cohesive picture of our historical roots. Yes, please!
