Welcome to the 360th episode of Our Hen House!
Mariann talks in depth with Ari Solomon, vice president of communications at Mercy For Animals about the recent film “Andy Goes In” and the evolving function of undercover investigations. Ari shares current best practices for communications strategy in farmed animal advocacy, as well as for the use of media to move the message.
Jasmin interviews Brianna Krejchi about her activism at the University of Pennsylvania as co-president of the Penn Vegan Society. Brianna has tips for making the most of connections to sustainability organizations and campus dining, too.
And of course, Mariann covers News and Rising Anxieties!
As always, the award-winning weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by Mariann Sullivan and Jasmin Singer.
This episode is sponsored by A Well-Fed World. A Well-Fed World is a hunger relief and animal protection organization chipping away at two of the world’s most immense, unnecessary and unconscionable forms of suffering… the suffering of people hungry from lack of food, and the suffering of animals used and abused for food. Mending our unjust food system is a critical part of solving the world’s most destructive and persistent problems. Fortunately, the plant-based foods that promote health and well-being are the same foods that conserve resources to better feed the world, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the environment. A Well-Fed World provides the means for change by empowering individuals, social justice organizations, and political decision makers to embrace the benefits of plant-based foods and farming.
