Welcome to the 38th podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring Veggie Conquest’s Jessica Mahady.
In today’s episode, we will share with you the exciting news about our feature in Time Out New York; we’ll tell you Mariann’s impetus for proclaiming that we shouldn’t spend more than $60 in garlic (!); we’ll give you our vegan take on the quaint town of Saugerties, NY; and Mariann will report on how her two animal law teleconferences went.
Joining us today is Jessica Mahady, creator of the hugely popular amateur vegan cooking contest, Veggie Conquest. Jessica will tell us all about how Veggie Conquest grew from a seed of an idea into a phenomenon that sells out within 10 minutes of tickets going on sale.
For our review section, we will give you our take on the Top 5 Stupidest Named Vegan Foods.
All that, some vegan banter, and of course, tons of current events from the world of animal rights.
This week’s news items include:
- “Congress Wastes No Time in Passing New ‘Crush Video’ Law” from The Wall Street Journal Law Blog
- “Advocate for Animals Expands Academics at NYU” from The Wall Street Journal
