As is tradition at The Brownble Podcast near the summer, and per our listeners recent requests, today I'm sharing my current favorite podcasts in the hopes that they bring inspiration to your life, and to of course help boost the listenership of some of these incredible shows that have given so much to me and others. Today I'll be sharing some of the best podcasts in psychology, food and eating, eating disorder recovery, intuitive eating and nutrition, body image, self improvement, society and culture, the best vegan podcasts, interview style podcasts and more.

In the spirit of sharing the podcast love, please remember that one of the best ways to support content creators in the podcast space is to leave ratings and reviews. So much goes into creating these shows, it feels like it's just as simple as pressing record and uploading but there is so much work that goes on behind the scenes, so if you could take 2 minutes today to leave a rating and review in our podcast, especially on Apple podcasts, and in any of those podcasts that fill your day with support, entertainment, joy, fun, or inspiration, I know I can speak for any other podcasters out there when I say it would mean the world. This is one great way of making sure others find the show, it helps podcasters get amazing and inspiring guests, it helps with sponsorship opportunities to help finance shows, and so much more. I'm joining you in this today, as soon as I finish recording today's show I'm going to take a few minutes to leave reviews on some of my favorite shows as well. I for one don't even remember what it was like to NOT have podcasts accompanying me through my day and I'm so grateful they exist! Another great way to support some of these shows and ours is to share them, take a screenshot and post on social media, or use the podcast platform and share via whats app or messages with your friends. In advance, we can't thank you enough.

Best Podcasts on Vegan Diets, Cooking, Veganism and Eating

 A little disclaimer before we tackle this topic. Confession time: I don't listen to a lot of vegan podcasts anymore and the reason is that interspersed with wonderful, amazing shows and episodes on the ethics behind veganism, making delicious food, entrepreneurship and wonderful animal stories is a lot of diet-culture centric content.

It has become a big part of the vegan movement, and although I'm 100% for the pursuit of health, some of the perspectives that are out there can be very triggering and often damaging in creating an obsession with purity in eating, less of a space for vegan peeps of all shapes and sizes, and this content can be very triggering for anyone with a past history of disordered eating or an eating disorder.This is the main reason why I've stepped away from many shows I used to listen to, which doesn't mean they don't also have wonderful content and are doing amazing work, it just means these shows aren't as much on my radar anymore. I would like to include however, three that I find have less of this triggering content or that some of you have shared and you've found interesting (but as always, proceed with awareness, skipping any episodes that might not be for you right now).


World Vegan Travel

Host: Brighde Reed

Description: A podcast on all things vegan travel and a must-have resource for my fellow vegans who want to eat deliciously while travelling, guests give you a guided tour of cities they've visited and tips for traveling as a vegan.

Description: One of the oldest and most comprehensive podcasts on animal advocacy, delicious vegan food and a critical look at the vegan movement from one of the queens of veganism, a vegan philosopher if there ever was one, Colleen Patrick Goudreau.

Vegan Life Magazine

Host: Jake Yapp

Description: Finally, a podcast about vegan food and cooking akin to popular non-vegan shows like America's Test Kitchen, such a fun exploration of vegan food, ingredients and world renowned dishes and chefs, all cooked with plants.

The Brownble Podcast · That's our show!
