Exploring Music, Documentary, and Veganism with Jillian Speece and Nathaniel Hoff

In a recent conversation with Jillian Speece and Nathaniel Hoff, the talented duo behind The Bergamot, listeners were treated to insights into their European tour, their award-winning documentary State of the Unity, and their personal journey with veganism. This dynamic pair discussed their passion for music, filmmaking, and the environment, offering a compelling narrative that resonates with both plant-based and non-plant-based individuals.

One of the highlights of the discussion was Jillian's annual women's retreat, Wild Wondrous Women, set against the breathtaking backdrop of Lake Michigan. This vegan and off-the-grid retreat not only emphasizes self-discovery and empowerment but also showcases the duo's commitment to sustainable living and ethical choices.

While Jillian follows a mostly vegan lifestyle, Nathaniel describes himself as an "opportunitarian," making dietary choices based on availability and convenience. Their candid conversation sheds light on the environmental impact of animal agriculture and the health benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, inviting listeners to consider the profound implications of their food choices on both personal well-being and the planet.

Despite the challenges of maintaining a vegan lifestyle while traveling as musicians, Jillian and Nathaniel remain steadfast in their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint and promoting compassion towards animals. Their openness about the struggles and triumphs of eating vegan on the road serves as an inspiration to anyone striving to align their actions with their values, regardless of their dietary preferences.

As they continue to captivate audiences with their music and storytelling, Jillian Speece and Nathaniel Hoff exemplify the power of art to provoke thought, inspire change, and foster unity in an increasingly divided world. Whether you're a die-hard vegan or simply curious about living a more sustainable lifestyle, their journey offers valuable lessons and insights for everyone to embrace.
