We’re Bob and Jenna Torres, two long-time vegans who like to use our skills and talents to provide vegans and aspiring vegans with support, community, and entertainment. We do this in a few ways:
- We wrote a book to help you go vegan, stay vegan, and deal with life around non-vegans;
- We used to host an online radio show that currently gets thousands of downloads each week at Vegan Freak Radio;
- We used to blog about living as a vegan in a world of omnivores at Vegan Freak Blog;
In addition, we also run Tofu Hound Press, which publishes books on veganism and animal rights.
We try hard to practice what we preach. We believe that veganism needs to be about more than what you eat. Specifically, we think that everyone needs to use their talents and skills — whatever they may be — to promote the cause of veganism and animal rights.
We are authors, scholars, and animal rights activists prominent in the field. Either of us or both of us have been a source for stories in both US domestic and international media outlets, including The New York Times, Newsweek, and The Guardian’s Sunday Observer. One of us or both of us have also been interviewed for several published books on vegetarianism and the animal rights movement, and done several radio appearances in the US and Canada.
