Episode 77: “…take out of our desires and our visions a template or a pattern for the future.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — July 02, 2011

Welcome to the 77th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Beth Gallie, Susan Rooker, and Betsy Carson.

In today’s episode, we come to you from Portland, Maine, where we are speaking at the Maine Vegetarian Festival and experiencing all the vegan goodness that this pretty New England city has to offer.

Chatting with us today are VegFest organizer, Beth Gallie; as well the author of the children’s book Lucky Pigs, Susan Rooker; and the producer of the Maine-based vegan show, Delicious TV, Betsy Carson.

We’ll also be reviewing Gobble Green, a vegan gourmet meal delivery service.

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

This week’s news items include:

“We must be able to take out of our desires and our visions a template or a pattern for the future.” -Audra Lorde

    This episode makes me so happy.I am not kidding; Delicious TV is the first link in my list of food/recipe bookmarks. It's one of the best, if not the best, resource available for omnivores who want to learn to eat and cook healthier. Nearly everyone can manage the recipes (no special kitchen skills required) and the food is seasoned enough to satisfy people who are used to foods where the strongest flavors come from meat/dairy.I got several of my non-veg friends hooked on roasted garbanzos:

    Susan, thank you so much for being interviewed and for just being all around fabulous! And Kezia, that is SO TERRIFIC! And, YUM, I have to check out that garbanzo dish (since garbanzos are my favorite food)... So happy you dug this episode! Us too! :-) xo

    So sorry, Deirdre!! We had actually been given wrong info from a couple locals up there, but I'll make sure they know about your longevity! It's great to know you've been fighting the good fight for so long. You rock! :-) xo
