Episode 97: “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”

By Jasmin Singer — November 19, 2011

Welcome to the 97th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Kim Stallwood.

In today’s episode, Jasmin will tell you about her vegan whirlwind trip to San Francisco, including the food, the rad, and smugly. Meanwhile, back in New York City, Mariann attended an eye-opening talk about the Non-Human Animal Rights Project given by Steve Wise, and she’ll tell us about that. We’ll also talk Thanksgiving, including how to survive it as a vegan.

Joining us today is longtime animal activist, Kim Stallwood. Kim, who joined us from his home in England, will talk politics with us – specifically as it relates to animal rights. He’ll also discuss with us some of the interconnections between animal rights and gay rights, and – based on his decades involved in this movement – he will ruminate with us on the evolving world of animal issues.

For our review, we’ll talk about bars. Not those kind of bars, nor are we talking about law-related bars. We’re talking energy bars. In particular, we’re giving you our thoughts on the vegan bar, Pure Fit.

All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.

This week’s news items include:

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” -John F. Kennedy

    Eye-opening episode, as always! Mariann, I particularly loved your aside about the beauty of the fact that the diet that's best for the animals is also turning out to be he one that's best for our health (and the environment, for that matter). Funny how these things work out!
