Going vegan was one of the greatest forces that propelled us into a life dedicated to helping others.
It’s now our turn to give back to the animals and the planet. We do this by helping people learn about the same atrocities that were hidden from us for so many years. We help educate people about the whys and hows of going and staying vegan. The activism we do to help animals, people, and the planet, is the least we can do.

Podcast on Patreon
In 2018 we have introduced a new addition to our Patreon offering.
Up until late January 2018, our Podcast show was free through our website. We were hoping to fund the creation of this content with regular and consistent advertising from ethical businesses. Despite the show being a wonderful success with over 175 international 5-star ratings on iTunes, and over 90,000 downloads in less than 6 months, unfortunately we were unable to attract enough advertising to cover the cost of equipment, production time (including scripting, recording, editing, uploading, and promoting), and the cost of hosting the show. Yes it actually costs us to host the Podcast on a media hosting site!
The positive and supportive feedback we receive about our Podcast is overwhelming, and we desperately want to keep the show going! So, the only way we can make producing Podcast content sustainable longterm, is by offering Podcast episodes as a ‘reward’ here on Patreon. ALL Patrons giving $1 a month or more, will have access to ALL our Podcast episodes which will be uploaded here on Patreon. That’s only $12 a year for access to quality, educational, entertaining, and often life changing content!
Just to be clear, whether you pledge $1 or $100, ALL our Patrons will have access to ALL our Podcast episodes via Patreon.
We aim to upload 1 new episode every week - so 4 episodes a month. However we don’t like making promises we can’t keep, and realistically sometimes “life happens”. Which means some months we may only be able to upload 3 or 2 episodes (or 1 episode if the wheels really fall off!)
But for only $1 a month, you’ve got nothing to lose, and only amazing content to gain. As a Patron, you will receive an email notifying you every time we upload a new episode. You can also cancel your pledge at any time.
We will be keeping our first 25 Free Podcast episodes up on our website for new listeners to come and experience our show before deciding to join us for paid content here on Patreon.
- On the rare occasion, there may be a special Podcast episode that we feel is important to be made free to the public. But this would be a rarity and the vast majority of our Podcasts will only be available for Patrons.
- If we are approached by a potential sponsor, we will still happily advertise their ethical product, as any additional revenue is always much needed to cover costs and expand our work.
A highlight of our Podcast is inviting special guests onto the show to discuss a variety of topics. This creates a thought-provoking 3-way discussion that our audience finds educational and entertaining.
More Than Veganism
Although the main focus of our content is veganism, we’re also in a unique position to help people move through life situations and evolve as earthlings.
Our personal journey to creating a healthy and fulfilling life, has allowed us to widen the scope of our content.
For example, our Podcast content is quite different to our YouTube videos, and we discuss various topics such as: health, life, making changes, relationships, work/careers, education, minimalism (living simply), the monetary system, society & culture, travel, spirituality, creation, expansion, etc!
How it works
1) Join our Patreon for $1 or more.
2) As a new Patron, you will have access to all our exclusive Patreon Podcast episodes.
3) All patrons are charged on the 1st or 2nd of each month (depending where you are in the world).
4) When you join our Patreon, you'll be emailed a unique RSS link. This means you will be able to listen to our Podcast episodes in some podcast apps. You will also be able to listen to each episode via Patreon if you don't want to use a podcast app, or your unique RSS link does not work in your podcast app of choice.
5) You’ll be notified every time we upload a new Podcast episode.
What does it mean to be a “Patron” and What can we do with your Patronage?
We live in a twisted world which handsomely rewards work that involves the exploitation of animals, people, and the planet… and yet, it’s increasingly difficult for people to earn a living not exploiting other beings. That’s why creators like us turn to Patreon. As a Patron, you help restore the balance by supporting our work that seeks to educate against the exploitation of other beings, whilst helping people create a healthy life of purpose.
Your monetary support helps us continue creating content on a full time basis, so that we can be as effective as possible.
Thank you xo
We’ve always said that this is Team TVC, and we mean it. We’re eternally grateful for your support and please know that we literally can’t do this without you. YOU are the reason we can continue creating content that helps, changes, and saves lives.
Q: Can I give a one time donation or leave a “tip"?
Yes you can :) Here's what it says on the Patreon FAQ: "The best way to support your favourite Patreon creators with a one-time pledge is to become a patron and simply remove your patronage after the first of the month once your pledge has successfully processed”.
However, giving a one-time donation or tip will not give you ongoing access to our Podcast episodes.
OR, you can make a one-off contribution through PayPal: [email protected]
"Just wanted to let you know what a profound effect your message (veganism/minimalism) has had for me. After going vegetarian last year have recently committed to going vegan and simplifying across the board. You are both wise beyond your years and what I so love about you is how you share this without expectation (and so intelligently and eloquently). Really inspiring!! Thank you"
"Natasha & Luca, I literally just bought your recipes ebook and briefly looked through it - This is a God-sent! I am so excited to try these recipes (I was getting tired of the few things I was cooking). Your channel is hands-down the most useful and informative channel I've found on YT (and I've looked for videos regarding various topics for the past many years!).
"You're the best ... you put so much into this world"
"Loving the PASSIONATE message and love radiating from you guys"
"Yours might have to be the best vegan channel I've come across so far"
"Once again, Excellent, Excellent response. You nailed it on the head. This video should be made into a movie for everyone to see. This resonates with me on a level I cannot describe. What I can say is, Excellent!! Thank you for speaking up for the animals, children and planet!"
"This is one of the best videos I've ever seen! Loved how many powerful facts you put into it. Amazing!"
"As much as I am vegan for the animals, I am vegan for the people and for the planet. That, my favorite vegan couple, is why I watch you two. Because you two display a mature, dependable approach... I feel as though this line can describe you two and your channel very well: predominantly displaying, with unrelenting force, values of love, peace and compassion, approachably. I also deeply appreciate your approachability"
"I just want to say thank you for all that you do, you guys inspired me to start living a minimal lifestyle and to eat vegan. I am so much more grateful in my life for the things that I have. Thank you so much"
"I think about you guys a lot when I'm out and about in the world; I think about the love you two have for each other and the message that you're spreading and it brings me so much joy"
"I can't help but love you both and admire you greatly for what you are doing.... your whole lifestyle concept of health, minimalism and veganism makes so much sense and is VERY appealing. You are doing a great job with your YouTube videos and for the promotion and support of veganism. Keep up your good work. You may never know how many lives you have touched and even changed for the better. I feel very proud of you both"
"You both brought me to tears. I just started my journey towards a better, happy positive life and you are THE biggest inspiration I have. You bring me so much faith and trust that everything will be okay. I've always been quite positive, but have not made the best choices in my life. Two months ago, I was at my worst physically, mentally and spiritually. I'm not even 22 and I thought my life to be over. But I didn't want to give up on life. And I came across the video of Luca's talking about how to cure candida overgrowth (because I believe that's what I have). At first I was very skeptical, because I've tried so much and I was on so many medication for my psoriasis, asthma, allergies etc. But after watching Earthlings, Forks over Knives and Cowspiracy, I decided to join the vegan lifestyle. It's only been 3+ weeks but I've been so good and I owe it to you. So thank you. You brought me back and gave me life xxx"
