Love is in the air — Vegan Love, that is — and its author Maya Gottfried joins me in person today to discuss this topic, her new book on the subject, her own vegan love story, and bright ideas for cruelty-free beauty products and vegan weddings. Maya is also my cohost and we open the show together with an interview featuring the articulate and knowledgable Carol Cox of “Speaking Your Brand” about why vegan activists and educators may want to look at public speaking and hone their skills in this area. (Carol will return on May 17 with more great info on speaking, after you’ve had the opportunity to peruse the free presentations skills PDF she’s provided especially for our listeners: http://www.speakingyourbrand.com/mainstreetvegan.)

Blast from the past! From falling in love to loving yourself — check out our October 8, 2014, episode in which we talk with Talia Fuhrman (yes, Dr. Joel Fuhrman is her dad) and her book, Love Your Body, and with Adrienne Borgersen, editor and publisher of the exquisite online fashion mag, La Fashionista Compassionista. (I’m proud to say that both Ms. Borgersen and today’s guest, Carol Cox, are graduates of Main Street Vegan Academy.)
