Verdant Reports is an experiment in podcasting. We shall see how it goes. The aim is to produce short, interesting, audio for people around the world who think that animals exist for their purposes rather than for ours. Instead of half an hour of entertaining chatter, we will produce podcasts which are much shorter but worth the five minutes they take up. If we expect lots of people to listen, then it is worth someone spending time making it worth listening to. We will check facts. We will aspire to produce good journalism, covering different perspectives with balance and objectivity. We share values with our audience. We obviously object to needless violence to people. Less obviously, we object to needless violence to animals. All media have voices they do not include, and we do not include voices that advocate, say, eating meat. We aim to gather information and ideas for stories in conversation with the online community. We shall give it a try, and we shall see how it goes.

Excellent Podcast - Great Content and Great Production
I found this podcast while I was searching for Vegan Food in Thailand. The Author had left a comment on another article with a link to the Thailand episode. I found the content of the podcast to be spot on and the interviews with a variety of people made them very engaging. The production value is top notch and the 5 minute length is all one can ask for. More please!
