Welcome to the 175th episode of Our Hen House, Official Honoree of the 2013 Webby Awards. Today’s episode features Jamie Kilstein, with a special review by Liz Dee.
In today’s episode, we give you the skinny on NYC’s huge vegan expo, The Seed, where we gave a talk entitled, “Fed Up? New Ways to Feed Your Body, Your Soul, and the World.” We’ll report back on the happenings there, including when and why Mariann felt her viewpoints made her vulnerable and the common and unexpected theme of the questions which followed our presentation. We’ll also discuss (and act out) how an alien coming down from outer space would react to the many ways we humans are ruining the planet and abusing animals.
Joining us today is indie media superstar Jamie Kilstein, co-host of the popular Citizen Radio podcast. Jamie, a passionate, outspoken, and hilarious vegan, will give us his unabashed thoughts on everything from the sanctuary movement (and how it has recently hit home for him), vegan athletes, how animal activism differs from other social justice movements and what we can take from that to improve our game, and his thoughts on what it’s like living in a day and age where everybody knows everything about our lives.
Then, Our Hen House’s Liz Dee will join us in providing an enlightened review of The Vegan Vine, a 100% vegan wine company that you will want to know about. (This review marks the first episode where Jasmin reviewed a product while at least somewhat intoxicated. So yeah. Don’t miss that.)
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
