Welcome to the 21st podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring an interview with an undercover investigator.
On today’s show, we’ll discuss the sad loss of Golden Girl — and long-time animal rights activist — Rue McClanahan.
Then, we’ll be joined by an undercover investigator who has been responsible for many of the investigations you’ve seen inside factory farms recently. He will tell us how he copes with such an impossible-to-imagine field of activism.
In our news section, we’ll discuss why Psychology Today says that vegans are wired to have more compassion than omnivores. We’ll also update you on the Gulf, and Newsweeks’ devastating – but not surprising – report that BP has put a hold on any real journalism or coverage of their disaster. And we’ll talk about a new UN report urging a global move toward a vegan diet.
Joining us for our review section is Kyle Knies, who will lead us in a thought-provoking conversation of the documentary film, Mine, which follows the stories of the animals left behind after Hurricane Katrina.
