Welcome to the 79th episode of Our Hen House, featuring bestselling author of Skinny Bitch, powerhouse Rory Freedman.
In today’s episode, we give you the skinny on our trip to Rockaway Beach here in NYC, and all the amazing, mindblowing vegan options that this odd expanse of boardwalk had to offer. We also will give you the rundown on our inspiring event with historian and author James McWilliams, which we called “The Truth Will Set Them Free.”
Joining us today is Rory Freedman, bestselling author of Skinny Bitch. Rory, who is one of the most instrumental animal activists of our time, will give us her take on karaoke, breakfast smoothies, ex-vegans, and the future of the animal rights movement.
For our review, we will give you our snapping thoughts of Pur Gum, a totally vegan, aspartame-free gum that is available far and wide. (Spoiler alert: YUM!)
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from animal rights.
