Episode 27: “Too late to go back to sleep.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — July 17, 2010

Welcome to the 27th podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring Dr. Melanie Joy, and with Kyle Knies, as well as Jasmin’s grandma.

On today’s episode, we are coming to you live from Kansas – where we will talk to my 86-year-old grandmother who just went vegetarian.

Then, joining us will be Dr. Melanie Joy, author of Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism. Melanie will talk to us about her fascinating insights  into the psychological mechanisms people use to allow themselves to coninue eating animals.

In our news section, we will discuss an exciting New York Times editorial that is very pro-farm animal. We’ll also talk about some good news for the AETA 4, and we’ll share with you James McWilliams’ take on lab-grown meat.

In our review section, Our Hen House reviewer, Kyle Knies, will give you the results of his unscientific survey on vegan milks.

    I loved listening to this podcast. Very informative to the end. I am a big fan of Melanie Joy's book and her idea of Carnism and how we can be better at communicating with Carnists in a more productive way by understanding how to articulate our choices of Veganism.Grandma...simply AWESOME..again! Loved how she said that it isn't easy to convert, but she's willing to dedicate to changing! Love her! Smooches, Gram! Congrats on the journey to Vegetarianism! You are a leader and will convert the masses...I see it happening! Be strong. We need you around another 86 years!Thanks for taking the time, girls...for this wonderful show! Enjoyable. Educational. So important and appreciated. Michele
