Thanks for posting, Robert! So good to see the word getting out in positive ways. The interviewer's versus the interviewee's speaking styles cracked me up, though. She sounds like she's shouting across a subway car and he sounds like he just woke up. If he enunciates more and projects, I think he'd reach more people, pun intended, and she just needs to calm the hell down or people are gonna think she's a New York City plumber in drag. :lol:

Glad to see non-meat diet getting a positive shout-out in the news! But holy hell, that CNN interviewer was so obnoxious! Almost seemed like a joke!

It seemed like an infomercial to me, the way she kept holding up the product and saying the name... weirdness!

Jane Velez-Mitchell is known for her loudness on her show. She often has one of those mallets a judge uses, I don't recall what they're called at the moment, and is waving it around :)

She's pretty high energy. I met her in New Orleans a few years ago.

I think it was probably a PR thing. It did seem pretty commercial, holding up the packet and drinking Vega. Most things on TV seem staged these days.

Brendan does look like a teenager at nearly age 40, which is pretty interesting. I saw him a few weeks back. He's constantly on the road, talking about his career as a vegan athlete to all sorts of groups from Google to staff members at stores and audiences at festivals.

Jane Velez-Mitchell is a vegan herself, right?

(That link takes me to a video about the Queen visiting Northern Ireland so I haven't watched the clip with BB.)

Yeah, she's a long-time vegan. I had dinner with her a few years ago in New Orleans and I had no idea who she was. I asked if she was part of the local group that put on the veg festival :)

Then I learned she had her own show on TV when someone told me :)
