Farewell, Diana

After fifteen great shows, Diana is leaving The Vegan Option. She’s continuing to talk about evolution, animals and ethics – blogging at Sentientist.org and tweeting as @Sentientist. (“Sentience” means the capacity for feeling and consciousness, so the name captures both her academic interests and ethical principles.)

It’s obvious to listeners that we were a couple. I’m sad to say that Diana leaving the show is part of us amicably going our separate ways.

The show was (mostly) my hobby, which Diana kindly graced with her wit, ideas, and expertise. She’s a natural radio presenter, and I hope her voice continues to be heard on waves and web.

My hobby remains creating interesting radio that just happens to be vegan. There are some great shows coming up, and I’ll blog about plans soon. One thing there isn’t going to be is another permanent co-host: pundits and expert guests will, I’m sure, keep me on my toes.

The next show – about what to feed cats – is almost ready. I hope you’ll like it.

About Ian McDonald

I'm a British new media person with a passion for radio, and interested in the kind of stories best told when we see humans as part of the world of animal minds. I blogged about why I'm producing The Vegan Option.

    Sorry to hear about Diana leaving and the breakup, but really glad you are continuing! You are the rock of the show. And I have five cats so I’ll be VERY interested in your next episode! Keep up the great work.

      Thank you very much for the words of sympathy and encouragement.

      I hope you enjoy the cats show.

      (P.S.: The show doesn’t have any reviews in the Australian iTunes store yet. Would be really nice if it did 😉 )
