Welcome to the 129th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Karol Orzechowski, filmmaker behind Maximum Tolerated Dose.
In today’s episode, we discuss bacon t-shirts for 3-year-old Brooklynites, the VegNews Twitter Chat Jasmin took part in focusing on gay rights and animal rights, Mariann’s nephew’s touching first word – which was, by the way, to his dog, the latest on Mike Tyson, and the class we taught for the Main Street Vegan Academy.
Joining us today is none other than the extremely talented Karol Orzechowski, mastermind behind the brand new film, Maximum Tolerated Dose. Karol will let us in on what it was like to undertake a creative project like this, which focuses on the hideous and hidden world of animal testing. With Maximum Tolerated Dose just about to launch into the AR scene with a bang, we at Our Hen House are thrilled to be the first to chat with Karol about it (post-production), and – excitingly – the very first to review it. You’ll hear that review today, and so much more about this groundbreaking film.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.

“I believe I am not interested to know whether Vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t. To know that the results are profitable to the race would not remove my hostility to it. The pains which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity towards it ….” Mark Twain
