My daily go to podcast for good thoughts on the vegan diet. I was raised as a meat eater, however, I am happiest and feel my best eating a vegan diet. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and wisdom publicly. I don’t feel so alone on my journey.

I've been listening to Colleen for many years. I have re-listened to several of her podcast episodes and I learn something new every time! You don't have to be "vegan" to learn so much about cuisine, compassion, wine, how to be an effective advocate, etc. I'm currently...Read full review »

I discovered this podcast about 8 years ago when I was a vegetarian. As I listened veganism became such an obvious progression. The message wasn’t heavy, just a clear description of the dairy and egg industry which made the progression natural. Colleen recognises the demands that moving to...Read full review »

The Joyful Vegan podcast is essential listening for anyone learning to navigate life as a vegan.

I love listening to Colleen! She has a way of speaking that just makes you want to listen to every podcast all at once! She’s informative and funny! Highly recommend if you’re questioning becoming vegan or just starting and need answers or motivation… or if you’ve been listening for years :)

Colleen is brilliant and I love getting her opinion on anything vegan related or not. She takes such a thoughtful approach on every topic she covers. She so very informative that I find myself listening to many of her episodes more than once.

After hearing from a friend how awful the dairy industry is, I wanted to learn more. It was just by chance that I dropped on the Food for Thought Podcast and I could not have been more fortunate. The first episode I listened to is entitled ‘Why Vegan? Pick a Reason. Any Reason’ and after that...Read full review »

Articulate, authentic, well-thought out, compassionate and joyful. This podcast is my best friend while navigating the journey of being vegan, practising ahimsa, in this day and age. Thank you Colleen !

The only podcast I tune in to! Been listening since I became vegan nearly 8 years ago when I backtracked and made sure I heard every single one ( some several times). Always informative and positive ! There’s so much negative vegan stuff out there, I always feel my spirits lifted after listening...Read full review »

I’m really enjoying Food For Thought. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is passionate about living vegan and provides down to earth advise on how to move in that direction.

I have learned so much for CPG. Her gifts are many. I have learned so much from her podcasts and she is just a sheer joy to listen to. You get the sense that you know her like an old friend you have not seen in person for a long time but can immediately connect to. I also like her direct approach...Read full review »

Colleen’s work is some of the most thoughtful, heartfelt content I have ever come across. Her research and presentation of material is concise and clear. I have been following CPG/Joyful Vegan for many years and her work is an absolute treasure!

Colleen covers such a wide range of topics and has such a compassionate perspective, I always feel better after listening to her :)
ElisaC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/02/21
Colleen puts in the effort to research the topics she presents and provides a compassionate narration of important issues. Thank you!
r.crowley via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/02/21
The host isn’t very natural and free flowing. She reads from a script which can come off as a little disingenuous and contrived but there is often good information there. I actually don’t love the vegan content and wish she would deliver more on her promise to expand upon the fifty ways to live a...Read full review »

Colleen is such a role model for me. I made the switch to veganism on Jan 1, 2020 and will never look back. I started listening to this podcast around June of last year, and the information is just so incredibly useful. I learn so much every episode, and the information I learn is helping me to...Read full review »

Just like the title implies, Colleen’s podcast makes me think in a productive way.
kuniflix via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 04/09/21
I love listening to Colleen! At times it feels like we are having a conversation. She brings up excellent points and helps me process through various thoughts I have. Even though I’ve been vegan for nearly 8 years, it is helpful to listen to the things she has to say.

I am so thankful to have found this podcast. Colleen has committed her life for the animals and shares so much knowledge. And she gives so much information on living life in a real and engaged way! Because of her I am now making my own soy milk and tofu (her class was awesome) and today I will...Read full review »

I’m vegan and I can’t listen to that. I feel so much judgment et condescending :(
henrietta93500 via Apple Podcasts · France · 01/12/21
I’ve been following Colleen for years and her way of speaking about the matters of animal advocacy and the world in general is highly captivating. I learn so much from each episode!

CPG, the host of this podcast, is always thoughtful and thought provoking. She’s so intelligent and I appreciate her compassionate outlook-both towards animals and people.
ElizabethPirie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/26/20
CPG is truly the most underrated philosophical voice of our time. This podcast is an absolute jewel and filled with so much wisdom even beyond veganism. I’ve learned so much about literature, history, and art through this podcast. Simply can’t recommend it enough—both to vegans and non-vegans alike!
Gdn1212 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/04/20
I've been vegan (now I align more with plant-based) ever since my mother and I started listening to Colleen back in 2014. The rigor she brings to her work in activism is matched only by her compassion and common sense, and, six years later, listening to Food for Thought is like listening to a...Read full review »

Colleen is an inspiration with a wonderful message and has a very relaxing voice 🖤
17jenn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/20
First time listening to Colleen, I needed to listen to something about compassion, I am 15 minutes in to the latest episode, and wow that was a lot to take in, I felt that it was too much about all the negative things that are happening... I needed to be lifted but I am leaving feeling depleted

Colleen is a calm, supportive, and wise voice of reason. I love her outlook on things. Her advice is so inspiring.

I love listening to Colleen. All her episodes are inspiring and informative. Her message is clear, crisp and always on point. She touches a wide range of topics from being vegan, to zero waste to how to live a meaningful life. But you can also find episodes on kitchen appliances and etymology of...Read full review »

Dubious science. Weak epidemiology. Yet another delusional, prematurely aged vegan promoting malnutrition and starvation. Avoid!
Psektuepr via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/06/20
When I first came across Colleen’s podcast I was a newer vegan and didn’t have the confidence to discuss my way of eating with others. Once I delve into the podcasts, not only did I become a more confident vegan but I became a better person. Her non-judgmental poignant way of discussing difficult...Read full review »

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is a brilliant educator. Not only does she inform the listener with scientific facts (and sites her sources!!!), but she does so with an air of love and compassion. Vegan educators and podcasters are often stamped with a seal of disapproval, being that the information...Read full review »

One of my favourite podcast series. Always engaging and can be comforting when I’m feeling isolated (as a vegan)
Mayaaa.rrrrrr via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/19/20
I wish everyone could listen to this podcast. I wish that everyone had this information and were more inspired to make informed food choices. I love Veganism and Vegetarianism because it allows me to make a difference in someone’s world by simply refraining from animal products. Veganism is the...Read full review »

Colleen thank for rooting me back to my intention and purpose of going vegan in the first place. There is so many emotions that were taunting me and hearing your podcast reminded me the root of this all, compassion. Thank you!
Pismo wedding via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/20
I was introduced to this podcast by a friend. Colleen was my initial “safe” place when I became vegan and I continue to return to her podcasts for thoughtful, compassionate ways to live my life.

Colleen has been my teacher from the age of around 16 or so, as her podcasts gave language to the amalgamation of feelings and half-formed phrases on the topic of eating animals. She provided a theoretical framework for me build my own mantras, beliefs, and story around. ALWAYS logical, ALWAYS...Read full review »
