As with most drastic changes in life, the impetus arrives through necessity. Just years after Alison Burgo’s acquired a debilitating auto-immune disease, her life’s work of charity and event planning took on an entirely different meaning. Witnessing first hand the power of healing foods and the bodies ability to heal itself under the right conditions, Alison alongside her partner and wife, Michelle, founded the Seed Food and Wine Festival, the first 100% plant-based food festival in the country.
Now approaching it’s second year, this year’s festival promises to be bigger and better with more events that invite the community to experience the plant-based lifestyle on an entirely different level. Because Miami is known for trendsetting parties and restaurants, Seed has invited chefs from all walks of life to participate and show that eating your veggies can be really sexy.
There is definitely something for everyone this year with events ranging from burger battles to movie night, a 5k run, yoga classes, elegant dinners and more.
Alison’s passion for planting seeds of change in the city is apparent in everything she does. Her enthusiasm is contagious and we can't wait for you to hear this interview.

Before he had a successful podcast with millions of downloads, an induction to the Podcast Hall of Fame, a feature in Forbes Magazine and a deal with Playit, a CBS affiliated company, Danny “Godfree” Peña was just an 80’s kid playing his Atari 2600, gifted to him by his grandmother. His introduction to the world of gaming captured his imagination and interest and instantly cemented a place in his heart.
After dabbling successfully for some time in the music industry as a hip-hop promoter in the 90’s, his passion for gaming kept burning inside of him and propelled him to create a show about video games on MP3.com which led him to cover the launch of the first Xbox and rub controllers with Bill Gates. But it was in 2005 when he would create Gamertag Radio (GTR) with his brother and set off on a journey that would turn out to be the most successful gaming podcast to date.
With his team of gaming experts, they’ve had the opportunity to travel the world reviewing games and providing honest feedback to their legions of loyal fans. This year, Gamertag Radio celebrated their 500th episode and 10th anniversary. We are stoked to have one of the original ‘Podfather’s’ sit down with us to discuss his story of passion, commitment and the love for this new medium of podcasting. Even if you’re not a gamer, Danny’s words of wisdom apply to any pursuit you may have in life.
