Curiously Veg Radio

Curiously Veg Radio sprouted up through an effort to reach plant-based and plant-curious minds alike. Our topics range from discussing scientific studies, tasty plant-based recipes, hot news topics, geeky humor, and informative interviews. The podcast encompasses serious information, personal experience, and creative dialog. Hope and Dave have known each other for over a decade and bring to the mixing board their unique journeys into a plant-based lifestyle. Hope’s extensive research and credentials from eCornell, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and ACE give her a vast library of knowledge and expertise in the fields of health, nutrition, and fitness. Dave adds a flare of personal experience, research, and a devil-may-care attitude. This unique combination will, no doubt, leave you wanting more!
