Episode 115: “Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn’t be done.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — March 24, 2012

Welcome to the 115th episode of Our Hen House, featuring human rights and animal rights attorney, Bina Ahmad. 

In today’s episode, we discuss the New York Times’ contest asking people to write and explain why they think it’s ethical to eat meat, and the reasons behind our counter-contest. We also talk about dreams, non-vegan tweeters, and our thoughts on being asked to speak to the subject of growing up… oppressed. Mariann will also make us all jealous as she talks about her experience at the brand new Candle Café West, here in New York City.

Joining us today is Bina Ahmad, a human rights and animal rights attorney. Bina will talk to us about activists’ rights, the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, ag-gag laws, and her favorite karaoke songs. Don’t miss this eye-opening interview.

For our review, we’ll tell you about Cages of Shame, the new documentary which tells the story of the dramatic rescue of 10 bears from a bile farm in Shandong Province, China. And if you’re in NYC, on April 14 you won’t want to miss the US premiere of this film which will benefit Animals Asia’s work to help endangered moon bears in Asia.

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

This week’s news items include:

“Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn’t be done.” -Amelia Earhart

    No chimichurris in the Candle Cafe frozen line. I just bought 3 of their 4 frozen meals the other day from whole foods, and on the box, it lists what they all are: the Seitan Piccata w/ brown rice, the Mac and Cheese, and Ginger Miso Stir fry, and the Tofu Ricotta Ravoli. Eating these is the only way I get to experience the greatness that is the Candle Cafe. You are both so lucky to live right there by them!
