Episode 15: “To ALL compassion gives”

By Jasmin and Mariann — April 24, 2010

Welcome to the 15th podcast episode of Our Hen House!

In today’s episode, we will report back on the trials and tribulations about our vegan bake sale, including some pretty exciting news about the media coverage it is going to receive. Then, we will be joined by the one and only Gene Baur – who some might say is the person responsible for the entire farm animal protection movement as we know it today. Gene will discuss everything from veganic gardening, to artistic expression as a way to advocate for animals.

Jasmin and Grandma

In our news section, we will go over this week’s Supreme Court ruling regarding animals and the First Amendment. In our review section, we will be joined by our very most special guest ever, Jasmin’s grandma, who will give us her thoughts on this week’s episode of Law and Order SVU, which went inside a slaughterhouse.

    This was a great episode. I am in the middle of reading Gene's book, so it was a very timely podcast for me. :-)Your grandma seems lovely. It's so nice that she respects "you people" and your food choices. Is she also a vegan?

    lisa: thank you so much for your kind words. i'm glad you liked it and so happy that you listened. gene's book is, indeed, totally wonderful. and i'm glad you liked my grandma! as for your question about her veganism, she has definitely changed her diet a LOT in the last several years. most of my family is vegan, and since she spends a lot of time around my family, she eats vegan usually. on her own, she's vegan a lot of the time, though not 100% ... yet! we're working on it though. thank you again, so much, for listening! xox
