Welcome to the 97th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Kim Stallwood.
In today’s episode, Jasmin will tell you about her vegan whirlwind trip to San Francisco, including the food, the rad, and smugly. Meanwhile, back in New York City, Mariann attended an eye-opening talk about the Non-Human Animal Rights Project given by Steve Wise, and she’ll tell us about that. We’ll also talk Thanksgiving, including how to survive it as a vegan.
Joining us today is longtime animal activist, Kim Stallwood. Kim, who joined us from his home in England, will talk politics with us – specifically as it relates to animal rights. He’ll also discuss with us some of the interconnections between animal rights and gay rights, and – based on his decades involved in this movement – he will ruminate with us on the evolving world of animal issues.
For our review, we’ll talk about bars. Not those kind of bars, nor are we talking about law-related bars. We’re talking energy bars. In particular, we’re giving you our thoughts on the vegan bar, Pure Fit.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
