Welcome to the 177th episode of Our Hen House, Official Honoree of the 2013 Webby Awards. Today’s episode features a look inside this past week’s Vida Vegan Con, featuring interviews with Sadie Bowman from The Intprepid Herbivores, Nicole Sopko and Dan Staackman from Upton’s Natural’s, Jill from Vegan Cuts, Jason Das from SuperVegan, and Janessa Philemon-Kerp, one of the organizers of this unique and groundbreaking conference.
Today, we will report back from our time in Portland, Oregon. We’ll tell you about our workshops, how advocacy fit in at this food-filled event, which fruity stench nearly caused us to run for our lives, and why animal rights isn’t rocket science. We’ll also revisit the conversation surrounding the meaning of the word “vegan.” Our guests – Sadie, Nicole, Dan, Jill, Jason and Janessa – will enlighten, entertain, and educate.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
