Welcome to the 260th episode of Our Hen House, featuring an interview with Tara Baxter, a review of DIY beauty products by Alessandra Seiter, and a special appearance by James McWilliams.
On today’s episode –the first one of 2015 – we squawk about Sweden’s new use of the word “hen”; why we were hemming and hawing about moving and what that has to do with tofu scramble and purebred dogs; and we’ll celebrate a huge victory that you helped Our Hen House to accomplish. Plus, we’ll give you a glimpse into this year’s upcoming plans that we have in store for changing the world for animals. There will be lots of “Rising Anxieties” today, too; and, as a bonus, author and historian James McWilliams will be a special guest for one of our stories. He’ll also tell us all about his new book that’s coming out this week, Modern Savage.
Then, joining us will be rabbit activist Tara Baxter, who will give us her take on the Whole Foods controversy involving the selling of rabbit meat. She’ll tell us about some of her campaign work in this realm, too.
For our review, Our Hen House’s own Alessandra Seiter — of Farmers Market Vegan — will get our skin ready for the New Year, making our skin-less wallets happy while she’s at it, with her tips on cruelty-free, budget-friendly, DIY beauty products. Check out the following links for detailed information on how to recreate the DIY products featured in the review for yourself: baking soda exfoiliating cleanser, apple cider vinegar & white tea facial toner, and “no-poo” hair care.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
