Welcome to episode 33rd podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring Steven M. Wise.
Today, we’re back home in NYC. Mariann’s animal law classes have started, and Jasmin has given up coffee. We also have some exciting announcements from here in Our Hen House!
Joining us today is long-time animal law guru, Steve Wise, who will talk to us all about the Non-Human Rights Project.
In our review section, we’ll be reviewing the book Henrietta, by David Mamet – which follows the story of a pig who wants to go to law school.
All that, some vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
This week’s news items include:
- “Where’s the Beet?” from Time Magazine
- “Weekday Vegetarians” from Time Magazine
- “Food Fight” from Utne Reader
- “Vegan Anyone?” from NPR
“The question is not, “Can they reason?” nor, “Can they talk?” but rather, “Can they suffer?” -Jeremy Bentham
