Episode 238: “The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — August 02, 2014

podcast

Welcome to the 238th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Mickey Z [transcript], with a special review by Alessandra Seiter

In today’s episode, we discuss almond milk, ex-vegans, preachy vegans, preachy ex-vegans, and animal agriculture’s most recent “Rising Anxieties.”

Joining us today is activist and writer, Mickey Z, who will talk about his new book — Occupy This Book — as well as share his refreshing worldview and vision for the future.

For our review, the very sweet Alessandra Seiter, of Farmer’s Market Vegan, will give us her take on some fantastic sweeteners that you could use in your sour life…or something like that. It’s a delicious review, you’ll see. (And, BONUS! Don’t miss Alessandra’s recipe for Salted Caramel Date Loaf, which she refers to on today’s episode!)

    Thank you for this 'cast. It was very interesting. You made a couple of throwaway comments about bees at one point. Bees are fascinating and mercurial, but one of the things that is not enigmatic about them is how they fly. We know this perfectly well, and it's never really been controversial http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumblebee#Flight On the hand another aspect of their behaviour you touched upon, the dancing, is crazy beyond belief. Barbara Shipman's theory from 1997 that the dance is performed and perceived in no less than six dimensions, whether correct or not, provides fascinating insight into symmetry and an geometry in the natural world.
