Welcome to the 49th podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring Bart Potenza and Joy Pierson.
Joining us today are two of our favorite change-makers, Bart Potenza and Joy Pierson, the couple behind the best vegan restaurant on the planet, Candle 79, and of course, the absolutely delectable Candle Café. Joy and Bart will tell us about how a winning lottery ticket (!) was the green light for them to start their Vegan Empire. They’ll also share relationship advice, business advice, and a whole lot more!
Our Hollywood correspondent, Ari Solomon, is back once again – this time to give us the vegan skinny on the big Hollywood PETA holiday party.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
