The 17 Best Vegan Podcasts in 2020

This post may contain affiliate links (see full disclaimer here). This means if you make a purchase after clicking, I may get a small percentage of the sale, at absolutely no extra cost to you.

Have you recently started listening to podcasts and are looking for the best vegan podcasts to listen to in 2020? Or, are you making the shift to veganism and looking for plant based podcasts to inspire?

I’ve put together this list so you won’t have to waste any time searching Spotify/Apple Podcasts/Castro/any of the other million podcast apps. With this list, you can get straight to listening to the best vegan podcast for you.

I remember five or six years ago, when I first started listening to podcasts,  there was hardly a single vegetarian podcast, let alone a vegan one. (Okay, maybe not quite — there were some pioneering vegan podcasts — but there wasn’t much range of choice!)

Now, there are lots of podcasts on a huge range of vegan topics, from vegan nutrition to vegan cooking to vegan lifestyle.

Below, I’ve outlined the best podcasts for vegans (in no particular order!), who should listen, what they’re about, how frequently they come out and links to subscribe.

Methodology:
How I chose the podcasts:
I started out with the most popular vegan podcasts, based on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google (none of them gave numbers, so I had to guess rankings based on search results). Then I added a few personal favourites — because popularity isn’t everything!

How I chose the most popular posts:
How did I calculate the most popular episodes for each podcast? I didn’t — I don’t have the stats to do that! I found the results on Owltail. They have rankings of the top 3 episodes for every podcast. I couldn’t find any info about how they produce rankings of episodes but for now, it’s all I could find.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON MEDICAL & NUTRITIONAL ADVICE

I was surprised to see so many of the most popular podcast episodes were around diet and nutrition. Please know that the podcasts listed below do not reflect my personal views and in many cases I disagree with some of them! Particularly when it comes to nutrition recommendations — one of my pet peeves is unqualified people giving out medical/nutrition advice (I opted not to include a podcast for that reason).

Please always investigate the source of advice and don’t take the advice of unqualified individuals! While it’s great to learn more about nutrition (especially as a new vegan), make sure the sources are reliable. For nutrition information, seek out a registered dietitian nutritionist (RD). In particular, I recommend Ginny Messina (the Vegan RD), who has a blog and books on vegan nutrition, and Taylor Wolfram, RD, who also blogs and offers nutritional counseling by video call from a Health At Every Size perspective. For medical advice, consult your doctor, not a podcast.

The Best Vegan Podcasts

What are the best podcasts for vegans? Whether you're looking for a podcast on nutrition, activism or lifestyle, here they are!

Main Street Vegan

Host: Victoria Moran

Website

Who should listen: anyone interested in general vegan news & information

What it's about:

On Main Street Vegan, long-term vegan Victoria Moran interviews a huge range of vegan guests. Victoria is a stalwart of the scene and brings her experience of meat-free living for many decades to the show.

Main Street Vegan is also one of the few podcasts on this list that's also on the radio (Unity FM in NYC) and this show has been running for awhile, so you have plenty of old episodes to listen to. Victoria has a very kind-hearted and compassionate approach to life as well as veganism, so expect interviews where she brings out the best in her guests.

One thing I love about Main Street Vegan is that Victoria interviews vegans who are involved in all sorts of different projects--the range of topics covered is huge. I also love the rapport Victoria builds with guests. Having been a guest on the show, I can say she knows how to make guests feel comfortable and I think that leads to better interviews. If you are interested in hearing about the whole range of projects vegans create, this show is for you.

Publishing schedule: 1 episode/week

Most popular episodes:

The Skeptical Vegan and The Invisible Vegan

John McDougall, M.D. -- Encore Performance!

Responsible Eating and Living, and Raw Cookies

Listen: Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher

that vegan couple

That Vegan Couple

Hosts: Natasha and Luca

Website

Who should listen: anyone interested in a thoughtful take on vegan topics

What it's about:

Natasha and Luca (That Vegan Couple) offer their takes on issues ranging from minimalism to how to deal with non vegan friends and family, with the aim to inspire you to live the life you want.

Topics go beyond veganism -- for instance, in one episode (that's available for free) the pair discuss their marriage and how they keep the spark alive, plus they open up about a very difficult patch and how they got through it.

'Episode 020: Do You Suffer from Vystopia?' was one of the most interesting and thought-provoking podcast episodes I've listened to recently. In it, they interview Claire Mann, vegan psychologist who coined the term vystopia. Philosophical and engaging, the episode will make you think about what it means to live as  vegan in a non-vegan world.

Publishing schedule 25 episodes are available for free. To access more episodes, it's $1/month.

Most popular episodes:

Episode 017: Ask TVC -- Family Problems, Bad Eating Habits & Anti-Vegan Excuses

Episode 020: Do You Suffer from Vystopia?

Episode 018: Storytime from Around the World! Part 1

Listen: Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher

food for thought

Food For Thought: the Joys and Benefits of Living Vegan podcast

Host: Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

Website

Who should listen: new vegans and those who want to align their lifestyle with their values, zero waste vegans

What it's about:

Vegan speaker and author Colleen Patrick-Goudreau has been putting out this podcast for 14 years! (I didn't even know podcasts existed 14 years ago!)

She offers her take on a number of philosophical dilemmas (see episodes such as: 'I'm not Evil, and Neither Are You: Tribalism, Ideology and a Call for Compassion' and 'Are Avocados, Figs and Almonds Vegan?').

I don't always agree with her, but I enjoy how thought-provoking many episodes are. Plus if you love linguistics, you'll enjoy her other podcast, Animalogy, which explores the linguistic origins of animal-related words.

Also of note are some of her more recent episodes on zero waste since pursuing a zero waste lifestyle. Help if you, like me, are working to reduce your waste!

Publishing schedule: 1-2 episodes/month

Most popular episodes:

Raw vs. Cooked Foods -- Which is Better?

Losing Weight - Part One: Calorie Expenditure

100-Mile Trek in the Scottish Highlands

Listen: Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher

michael greger nutrition facts

Dr. Michael Greger's Nutrition Facts

Host: Dr. Michael Greger

Website

Who should listen: those interested in vegan nutrition

What it's about:

Dr. Michael Greger, who runs NutritionFacts.org and authored the book How Not to Die, hosts this vegan nutrition podcast, which focuses on evidence-based nutrition. Personally, I disagree with some of his stances, such as on oil, but this plant based diet podcast is really popular. I guess because people always want to know more about plant-based nutrition, particularly new vegans! (Side note: my go-to vegan nutrition resource I always recommend to new vegans is the blog & books of Ginny Messina, aka The Vegan RD.)

Most episodes are short (10-15 minutes), and cover a single topic, such as vitamin C supplements or acai.

Publishing schedule: 1 episode/week

Most popular episodes:

Keto Diet Series -- Part 1

The Healthiest Way to Cook

A Longer Life

Listen: Spotify, Apple Podcasts

vegan warrior princesses

Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack (now Bitchy Shitshow)

Hosts: Callie and Nichole

Website

Who should listen: vegans who are interested in a feminist, anti-capitalist, pro-intersectional perspective

What it's about:

While researching this post, Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack hosts announced the show was ending -- but they're starting a new show, Bitchy Shitshow, and they've left all the old Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack episodes up! And there are a LOT (hundreds!) so you can spend awhile working your way through the back catalogue.

Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack is a feminist, anti-capitalist, pro-intersectional, anarchist podcast and so they approach vegan issues differently to the way some other podcasts do. I enjoyed their episode (number 260) where they answered a reader questions on how to make money as an anti-capitalist.

Publishing schedule: No longer being published

Most popular episodes:

Episode: 253 Discussing Us with Max S. Gordon!!! Plus Get Out, Joker, and Handmaid’s Tale!

Episode 125 Tricky Non-Vegan Items, Part 2: Down, Pet Pigs, Carnivorous Pets and Freeganism

Episode 116 The High Cost of Being Poor

Listen: Spotify, Apple Podcasts

Rich Roll

View this post on Instagram

There are conferences. Then there’s @thenantucketproject. Maybe it’s the intimacy. The diversity of ideas shared. The unique lineup of speakers — here for the experience just as much as the attendees. Or perhaps it’s the tented theatre in the round vibe, which makes it feel like we’re just telling stories around the campfire. TNP is all of these things. But mostly it’s the intention and high vibe conscious awareness that Tom Scott and his incredible team bring to the experience — specifically curated to provoke introspection. Deepen connection to ourselves, our families, our neighbors. And foment the ideas required to forge a better world for all. Back for my second year, it was an honor to contribute, hosting conversations with past podcast faves @zachbushmd and @russellbrand. It was a bigger honor to listen to, observe and spend time with so many incredible humans collectively united by their shared commitment to improving the human condition. Thanks again for having me @thenantucketproject. So grateful and already excited for next year. ✌?? - Rich #TNP #TNPP2019 #nantucketproject #thenantucketproject #TNP9

A post shared by rich roll (@richroll) on

Host: Rich Roll

Website

Who should listen: anyone interested in Rich Roll's take, interviews with guests that don't always touch on veganism but often dive deep into the guest's history and beliefs

What it's about:

Rich Roll's podcast is very different to others on the list because while Rich Roll is a vegan, and occasionally interviews vegan guests, he doesn't always talk about veganism on the episodes (though he does sometimes). Instead, his interviews usually dive into the guest's past, why they've made the choices they have in life and many times into their spiritual beliefs.

Rich Roll's made a name for himself in the podcasting space as one of the most popular podcasts (with over 70 million downloads) for a reason. If you are interested in hearing a deep dive into interviewee's lives then give this one a listen.

no meat athlete

No Meat Athlete

Hosts: Matt Frazier and Doug Hay

Website

Who should listen: athletes, fitness enthusiasts

What it's about:

Brendan Frazier has run the No Meat Athlete site for many years, and it's a go-to resource for many plant-based athletes. He has also published books, videos and this podcast.

The podcast covers vegan nutrition, running tips and training advice, habit change and more. But they also cover other topics, such as real-life tales from a vegan digital nomad, how to raise healthy, active plant-based kids and more.

brownble

Brownble

Host: Kim Sujovolsky

Website

Who should listen: anyone who wants to improve their relationship with food and the kitchen

What it's about:

Kim from Brownble runs my favourite online vegan cooking classes, a course about going vegan and this podcast. I love Kim's approach to cooking and eating, and that she talks about much more than veganising versions of your favourite dishes. She also talks about improving your relationship with food, self-care, mindfulness and much more.

If you want to get back in the kitchen and improve your relationship with food and yourself, it's a must-listen.

bearded vegans

Bearded Vegans

View this post on Instagram

We are The Bearded Vegans, a podcast featuring a dissection of all things vegan. We've been putting out an episode every Wednesday for over four years and that adds up to a LOT of episodes. We know it can be daunting to break into a new podcast with such an extensive back catalog and we are often asked what is the best place to start. Since things have evolved so much since our inception, we figured episode 1 wasn't the best place to enter, as it isn't necessarily representative of the content we put out these days. So to that end we have put together a Spotify playlist of some of our favorite episodes that we think encompass what we are all about pretty well and will give newcomers a better idea of what to expect. You can find that podcast at thebeardedvegans.com/starthere and we'll also be dropping the first four selections (with new introductions and edited down to just the main discussion) into our feed over the next month. Happy listening!

A post shared by The Bearded Vegans (@thebeardedvegans) on

Hosts: Andy Tabar and Paul Stellar

Website

Who should listen: anyone interested in in-depth and nuanced discussions of vegan issues and ethics

What it's about:

The Bearded Vegans (Paul and Andy) describe their podcast as having started because they wanted to provide more nuanced views on issues for experienced vegans (although new and aspiring vegans also enjoy the podcast, too).

The first episode I listened to was about the fires in the Amazon -- and whether veganism would actually prevent fires -- and was a really interesting discussion. I appreciate the research and thought they put into it.

A post shared by Monique-brownvegan.com (@brownvegan) on

Host: Monique Koch

Website

Who should listen: vegan parents/anyone living in a household with non-vegans

What it's about:

Brown Vegan is the podcast by Monique Koch, who runs this show and a Youtube channel by the same name. The podcast is her perspective on vegan issues. In particular, I found her episode (no. 98) on parenting non-vegan kids interesting and I'm sure many parents who transitioned to a plant-based diet after they had kids will be able to relate.

The podcast had a long break from May 2019 to early 2020 but since she has published an episode every 1-2 weeks.

minimalist vegan

Minimalist Vegan Podcast

View this post on Instagram

Today marks five years since we hit publish on The Minimalist Vegan for the first time. We remember the launch like it was yesterday. We went live with five posts, including two recipes, and articles about our vegan journey, minimalism, and how to go paperless. It’s hard to believe the journey we’ve been on since, and how this project has shaped so many of our decisions. The intersection of minimalism and veganism is about being mindful of what and how much we consume. This philosophy of mindful consumption has influenced the way we cook, travel, meet new people, our approach to our wedding, how we raise our dog, what type of careers we pursue, and our overall connection to sentient beings and the earth of which we share. These are just a fraction of the ways the decision to start a blog has impacted our lives. Every post is an insight into what we’re learning and experiencing. It’s a live feed that represents our growth and hopefully, our impact. As you probably already know, we’re incredibly idealistic. We strive to be in a world where how we live influences the content we create, and the content we create influences how we live. Pursuing this ideal has served us well, but has also put us under incredible stress and anxiety at times. You may not realise it, but focusing our full attention on this project has been far from easy. We’ve made incredible sacrifices and compromises to get to where we are today. We’ve worked through lunch breaks in our day jobs, late nights, weekends. We’ve said no to social events, and family time. We’ve experienced incredible self-doubt of whether we’re good enough, or how we’re going to pay our next bill. But through it all, we’ve had each other. We’re both each other biggest fans and support network, and it’s through our bond and partnership that we’ve been able to respond to adversity time and time again. We want to take a moment to thank you for coming along on this journey with us. You could be spending your time doing so many other things, but the fact that you choose to consume our content mindfully means the world to us. And the fact that you are also pursuing a minimalist vegan lifestyle means even more! Michael and Maša ✌

A post shared by The Minimalist Vegan (@theminimalistvegan) on

Hosts: Michael and Maša Ofei

Website

Who should listen: those interested in minimalism or simplifying their lives

What it's about:

The Minimalist Vegan podcast is about living a vegan and minimalist lifestyle, zero waste living and productivity. For example, in the Christmas episode, Michael and Maša discuss how to have a less consumerist and more minimalist Christmas--and how to feel you're still celebrating the festive season (if you want to) while not contributing to over-consumption.

Vegan Business Talk

View this post on Instagram

In this episode I’m sharing the audio version of a talk I gave last year at the @world_vegan_day_melbourne festival in Melbourne, Australia, called ‘Will vegan capitalism save the world?’ ?⠀ ⠀ It’s a bit of a controversial topic, but one worth exploring as multi-national corporations not known for their ethics in regards to animals, people or planet are jumping on the plant-based trend, bringing out their own animal-free versions of popular products, investing in #vegan businesses or buying vegan companies ?⠀ ⠀ One of the issues that keeps coming up in discussion is the impact this will have on independent, ethical, vegan businesses ?⠀ ⠀ For example, renowned vegan bakery store Ms Cupcake in the UK has just announced it will be closing the doors to its Brixton location in London, saying that after 10 years it had achieved its goal of making vegan products mainstream and customers could now buy vegan treats at the supermarket nearby ?⠀ ⠀ In this 20-minute talk, I look at:⠀ ⠀ • The pros and cons of large corporations getting in on the vegan and plant-based trend⠀ ⠀ • What it means for independent, ethical, vegan businesses and what they need to do to stay ahead of the game⠀ ⠀ • What we need to ultimately happen and how that’s starting⠀ ⠀ • And more ⠀ ⠀ Enjoy! And once you’ve had a listen, let me know what you think ? ⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ ? LISTEN: veganbusinessmedia.com/podcasts or on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, or your favorite podcast app.

What it's about:

Evanna Lynch, aka Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter films, started this podcast to interview interesting vegan voices. I love the way she approaches interviewees with what seems like a genuine attitude of curiosity at getting to know their vegan histories, philosophies and views, without any judgment.

What it's about:

Currently on a break, the last episode of Live Planted was one where Alyssa announced she's having a baby. An interesting discussion on vegan pregnancy ensued, so I'm sure if and when she comes back to the podcast it will be of a lot of interest to new vegan parents.

Live Planted is hosted by Alyssa, who describes herself as a Midwestern girl who wants to show you how a regular person can live a practical vegan lifestyle. Expect to hear about veganism, sustainability and activism, all while living a 'regular' life.

2 thoughts on “The 17 Best Vegan Podcasts in 2020”

  1. Thank you for the list, I love a good podcast and I’m looking for new podcasts to add to my playlists, and THANK YOU for the note on medical advice – there are already so many good reasons to go vegan, we don’t need to muddy the waters with spurious health advice. I see some weird claims about health in vegans vs not vegans out there…

    Reply
    • Same! There are many, many good reasons to go vegan that I’d much rather people hear than spurious health claims. Unfortunately that seems to be popular and I worry it will put people off. My cousin watched a documentary on Netflix (can’t remember which), decided to go vegan and then quit after a month when she wasn’t seeing the health results the documentary claimed she’d experience. Much better to approach with one of the many other messages on going vegan.

      Glad to hear you’re also a podcast fan and hope you find some new favourites here! :)
