Welcome to the 67th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Joe Cross, filmmaker behind Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.
In today’s episode, we will tell you about Jasmin’s adventure with corsets — all for the animals, of course. We’ll report on how Jasmin’s “Writing for Animal Rights” talk went, and we’ll make you jealous with the food we had afterwards. We’ll also very briefly give you our take on the latest vegan story in the news.
Joining us today is Joe Cross, the mastermind behind the film that changed our lives, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Joe will talk to us all about his journey doing a 60-day juice fast, and will give us unbelievable insight not only into the benefits of juice fasting, but also the sad state of the American diet.
For our review, Our Hen House’s own Ari Solomon will give us his take on Star Trek 4, from an animal rights perspective. You might be surprised at his observations!
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
