Welcome to the 310th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Twyla Francois, Alessandra Seiter, and Alan Nemeth. As always, the award-winning, weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by us — Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan.
On today’s episode, we squawk about chocolate stout and other beer-y good news! And speaking of vegan goodies, we welcome Alan Nemeth of the Vegan Trade Council, who will fill us in on the VTC’s efforts to ensure that vegan products are represented in the marketplace.
Our feature interview is with undercover investigator-turned-vegan artist Twyla Francois. Her colorful and heartwarming artwork helped her turn the horror of what she had seen into a positive vision of peace for animals. (You’ll want to get a new duvet cover, too!)
Then, we’ll be joined by our own Media Coordinator Alessandra Seiter — of the blog Chickpeas and Change — who will tell you all about the wonderful world of aquafaba and the innovative genius it brings to vegan cuisine.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, “Rising Anxieties,” too, so hold onto your tempeh!
