Episode 391: Richard H. Schwartz, Janet Kearney, Liz Holtz

By Jasmin and Mariann — July 08, 2017

Welcome to the 391st episode of Our Hen House, featuring interviews with three activists working in their communities to change the world for animals!

Mariann interviews Richard H. Schwartz, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of the College of Staten Island, about his latest book, Who Stole My Religion? Revitalizing Judaism and Applying Jewish Values to Help Heal Our Imperiled Planet. This book is a call to all of us – Jewish or not – to use compassion and kindness to move onto a sustainable path. 

Jasmin talks with Janet Kearney, founder of Vegan Pregnancy and Parenting, a social media support group for vegan parents and caregivers. Janet’s group helps vegan parents throughout the world with answers to questions and support through parenting struggles.

Mariann and Liz Holtz discuss the Attorney at Paw program of For All Animals. Liz, an animal rights attorney and lifelong animal advocate, oversees this program, which provides assistance to those interested in passing laws to protect companion animals at the city and county levels. 

Mariann covers News and Rising Anxieties, of course!

As always, the award-winning weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by Mariann Sullivan and Jasmin Singer.

This episode is brought to you in part through the generosity of 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.
