Welcome to the 37th podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring VegNews’ publishers, Joe Connelly and Colleen Holland.
In today’s episode, we will give you the low-down on the joy of our new, one-of-a-kind, vegan-produced tote-bags; the horrors of the animal exploitation at the San Genarro Feast here in NYC; and the story of a little pigeon on Prince Street who tugged at Jasmin’s heartstrings and re-routed her afternoon.
Joining us today are vegan power couple, Joe Connelly and Colleen Holland, publishers of the uber-popular VegNews Magazine. Colleen and Joe will talk to us all about the high points of the past 10 years — since VegNews’ conception — including favorite interviews, the changing face of the vegan food movement, and advice for young writers and future business owners who want to incorporate the animal rights message into their profession.
All that, some vegan banter, and of course, tons of current events from the world of animal rights.
This week’s news item include:
- “The Rise of the Power Vegan” from Men’s Journal (read a snippet)
- “Clinton’s Weight Loss Secret: Plants” from CNN (watch the video)
- “Prop B would curb puppy-mill cruelty” from Southeast Missourian (read the article)
“Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test…consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect humankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.” -Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
