Episode 72: “Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — May 28, 2011

Welcome to the 72nd episode of Our Hen House, featuring NOLA Veggie Fest organizers, Dr. Leslie Brown and Jehan Strouse.

In today’s episode, we come to you from Amelia Island, Florida, and New Orleans, Louisiana. In Amelia Island, Mariann was busy with an animal law meeting, and in Nawlins, we both were excited to speak at the fabulous NOLA Veggie Fest. We will give you the full roundup of those two events, as well as our vegan adventures in those two very different towns.

Joining us today are the organizers of the NOLA Veggie Fest, Dr. Leslie Brown – who, when she’s not helping to put together the Veggie Fest, is a pediatrician who vocally advocates a plant-based diet — and Jehan Strouse, nutritionist extraordinaire, who spends her days immersed in selling vegan food to health food stores, and working on further veganizing the jazzy city that she is so passionate about.

The vegan gumbo is not to be missed.

For our review, we will tell you all about the book, Good Time Eatin’ in Cajun Country: Cajun Vegetarian Cooking, by Donna Simon. In Southern Style, we will try our hand at everything from Vegan Gumbo to Cajun Tofu.

All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.

This week’s news items include:

“Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” -Elie Wiesel

    "Elie Weasel" hahaha. Never heard his name pronounced that way;) Thanks for another info-packed podcast. It kept me company while I tried to make "nice krisipie treats" in the kitchen for my niece. Our Hen House is the best vegan podcast!
