Vegetarianism: The Story So Far

Author/Presenter: Ian McDonald
Website: http://theveganoption.org

The Vegan Option is a radio show and blog sharing stories and analysis from vegan perspectives.

In this new series Vegetarianism: The Story So Far Ian McDonald delves into the history of vegetarianism around the world.

Excerpts from http://theveganoption.org:

People have been arguing for vegetarianism for a very long time. The history of animal advocacy stretches back to iron age Greece and India, where voices emerge from prehistory challenging the idea that other animals exist soley for humans.

This 15-part series tells the whole story, from antiquity to the present, spanning the world. People around the world have told me about their part of the story. I’ve examined a royal inscription from an Indian king with one of the few people who can read it; and seen vegetarian shoes made in post-revolutionary America. And I want to share these stories with you.
