Colleen Patrick-Goudreau —a nationally-recognized speaker, author (of seven books) and podcaster whose milieu is espousing the virtues of vegan living—describes her earliest efforts as an advocate, the better part of three decades ago, when even then a driving passion was for communicating. media-kit-photo-7Patrick-Goudreau traces her path from functioning as “lone advocate,” distributing handmade leaflets, to starting to teach cooking classes, to producing a DVD, to launching her “Food for Thought” podcast. In response to an observation that the cultural landscape is currently cluttered with podcasts, but when she started “Food for Thought” more than a decade ago, she was ahead of the curve, Patrick-Goudreau allows that she barely knew what a podcast was then, but because her husband is a musician, they had the equipment on hand to give it a go. Referring not just to “Food for Thought,” she notes the30that much of her work over the years has been aimed at assisting people who recognized they wanted to make a change in their lives (typically, to embrace veganism), but didn’t know how. Earlier this year, Patrick-Goudreau began producing a second podcast, “Animalogy,” exploring animal-related words and expressions, their history, and their implications; she offers a sampling of the two episodes that explored the etymology of colors (taupe, merlot, buff, etc.) Patrick-Goudreau briefly addresses the seven books she’s written, saying—when pressed—that the ones that seem to have had the most profound impact are “The Joy of Vegan Baking” and “The 30-Day Vegan Challenge.” (www.colleenpatrickgoudreau.com, www.joyfulvegan.com)
