Episode 222: “Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — April 12, 2014

podcastWelcome to the 222nd episode of Our Hen House, featuring Dave Neale [transcript] and Alessandra Seiter [transcript]. 

In today’s episode, we squawk about thrift stores, Doris Day on vinyl, and an environmental organization that is finally taking the plunge and discussing the extreme toll that animal production takes on our planet. Plus, there’s lots of Rising Anxieties today to chat about, as well as a look inside a children’s coloring book that might as well be called, “We Are Lying to the Children.”

Joining us today is David Neale, the Animal Welfare Director for Animals Asia, who will be discussing with us the horrific practice of drinking snake blood in Vietnam, and what animal advocates can do about it.

Then, we will also be joined by Alessandra Seiter, a young activist with a taste for veggies and a zest for spring, who will be giving us the inside scoop on the best veggies to look out for this season.

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

    This episode made me so happy and sad, as you can imagine. THANK YOU for covering all the snake issues! I was also very excited to hear your coverage of the Center for Biological Diversity's "take extinction off your plate" campaign. As I learned on OHH, conservation/environment is the least common reason people go veg and I think that may be because it is discussed less than animal rights and health. I'm thinking this campaign may change that because it is getting some mainstream attention as well (e.g., NPR).
