Episode 245: “We’re under some gross misconception that we’re a good species, going somewhere important, and that at the last minute we’ll correct our errors and God will smile on us. It’s delusion.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — September 20, 2014

245Welcome to the 245th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Wayne Hsiung [transcript], with a special review by Ethan Ciment and Michael Suchman.

On today’s episode, we tell you about a dog on Broadway, a vegan Philly cheesesteak in Brooklyn (Marty’s Vegan Fast Food!), a disappointing coffee outing, a new reclaimed piece of furniture that is changing the world for animals (we love Jim Tower!), and why we think Ewan McGregor should be vegan.

Joining us today is Wayne Hsiung, the force of nature behind Direct Action Everywhere, and a coordinator for Animal Liberationists of Color. Wayne will tell us why the slogan, “It’s Not Food; It’s Violence,” is what he hopes people will begin to associate with the chain restaurant Chipotle.

For our review today, the Vegan Mos will be back — that’s Ethan Ciment and Michael Suchman — with their take on Terry Hope Romero’s cookbook, Vegan Eats World.

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

BONUS! Be sure to check out some of Direct Action Everywhere’s amazing work with these two representative videos: Gone But Not Forgotten and Cultivating…Violence.
