Episode 17: “… nobody need wait a single moment …”

By Jasmin Singer — May 07, 2010

Welcome to the 17th podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring special guests Paul Shapiro and Kelly Overton.

In today’s episode, we will begin by talking about some strong new vegans, as well as some artistic ones … .

Joining us today is Paul Shapiro, Senior Director of The Humane Society of the United StatesEnd Factory Farming campaign. Paul will talk about everything from the latest from the Ohio anti-confinement ballot initiative, to how he – a long-time vegan and animal rights activist – avoids activist burnout.

In our news section, we will report on some animal news about Goldman Sachs, and the implications it has for China. We will also share some muy bien news right from Our Hen House.

Our second guest today will be Kelly Overton, Executive Director of People Protecting Animals and their Habitats (PATH). Kelly is currently stationed on the Gulf of Mexico and is preparing to assist in efforts to rescue animals at risk because of the oil spill. We will hear Kelly’s thoughts about British Petrolium, and he will let us know how we can help the situation down there, right from home.

Finally, we will discuss the results of our Facebook survey where we asked you to tell us your favorite quote.

    I love your website and I I'm learning a lot listening to your podscats, thanks for all the work you both do. And about treceveinte's article, it was very interesting and exciting read it because it will help the latin american public know more about what it means to be vegan, that it's "an affordable alternative, healthy and ethics to all sorts of unimaginable cruelty". And by the way Jasmin your spanish sounded great ... Lo hiciste muy bien..
