Episode 102: “There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — December 24, 2011

Welcome to the 102nd episode of Our Hen House, featuring Jamie Kilstein from Citizen Radio

In today’s episode, as Christmas approaches, we are doing our best to be nice and not naughty… but we’re failing miserably. We will share with you our retort to one website’s question regarding whether feminists should be vegan. And we’ll vent a little regarding the latest piece in The Atlantic that promoted eating animals (the act of it, not the book). On the nicer side, though, we’ll also share with you the incredibly exciting news regarding our latest video on Sue Coe.

Joining us today is powerhouse Jamie Kilstein, half of the brains behind the wildly popular podcast, Citizen Radio. Jamie’s extended interview will include his ramblings about how he began Citizen Radio, his thoughts about reaching the lefty crowd with the vegan message, his ruminations on his experiences performing vegan jokes in his stand-up comedy act, and tons more.

For our review, Our Hen House’s Hollywood correspondent, Ari Solomon, will give us his thoughts on the forthcoming Stephen Spielberg film, War Horse. Ari will discuss with us not only the film itself, but some of the issues regarding the use of animals in film. (Also see: “Animal Stories in Film: Inherently Exploitative? Potentially Eye-Opening?“)

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

This week’s news items include:

 “There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.” -Henry David Thoreau

    I am disappointed that you didn't listen to the second half of the radio show, "Should Feminists Be Vegan." Sheri Lucas laid out excellent arguments in the affirmative in that section of the show. As you reported on it, her thoughtful analysis will now be missed by your audience. Perhaps you could listen to her interview (starts at approximately 27 minutes in) and report on that sometime.

    While I enjoy your podcast I'm afraid I can't take all the swearing. I understand that you are passionate and I may be a prude but your use of profanity is off putting. I'm trying to learn about veganism and you're swearing at me. You are NOT indefatigably positive. Not even close. Hasta la vista - Daz Jones
