Ethan Brown of Beyond Meat, NPR & iHeart Radio, Mark Thompson and Pro Surfer, Tia Blanco

 
 
It has been quite a month for plant-based news.  On May 2, Beyond Meat became the first plant-based company to be listed on the Nasdeq with an historic IPO of a 163% gain, the largest since 2008.  Only weeks earlier, I interviewed (for a second time) Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown for NPR's KCRW.

You can listen to the full KCRW interview
here in which Ethan takes me through the Beyond Meat factory. For my first interview with Ethan Brown on my Awesome Vegans Podcast in which we grilled sausages together in my kitchen (upper left image), click here.

Originally airing on #JaneUnChained News Network and now on WGN Radio, be sure to tune in! Mark is a wealth of knowledge about news, the media, politics and the environment.
