Welcome to the 408th episode of Our Hen House!
This week Our Hen House brings you a special episode of interviews from Mariann’s recent trip to Germany!
First, Mariann shares her brief interviews with some of the speakers at the End of Meat Conference. This segment features Hendrik Haßel, Hilal Sezgin, Dr. Marco Springmann, Trent Grassian, and Professor Dr. Mark Post.
Then, in her main interview, Mariann talks to Marc Pierschel about his newest film, The End of Meat, which Mariann is also featured in! Marc Pierschel is an author and filmmaker from Muenster, Germany. He is the co-founder of ‘roots of compassion‘, the author of ‘Vegan! Vegane Lebensweise für alle‘, an introduction to veganism and ‘Vegan lecker lecker‘, a vegan cookbook with over 60,000 copies sold. His documentary films include ‘Live and let live’, a documentary examining the ethical, environmental and health reasons that move people to go vegan, which was picked up by Netflix in 2016 and ‘184’, the story of a small group of activists and their campaign to expose the Icelandic whaling industry. His current film ‘The End of Meat’ was financed through Crowdfunding and released in theatres across Germany on September 14th.
Jasmin covers the VegNews’ top vegan-related news stories from Germany!
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.
