Welcome to the 110th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Kezia Jauron and Gary Smith from Evolotus PR.
In today’s episode, we tell you about the talk we went to on Rethinking Animals, which discussed, among other things, the consciousness of animals. We’ll whine about a horrible string of events we attended, and we’ll share with you our excitement about yet another new Our Hen House advisory board member – whom we each have a huge crush on.
Joining us today are Kezia Jauron and Gary Smith, the masterminds behind Evolotus PR, a public relations agency working for a better world. Kezia and Gary will give us their thoughts on the power of using the media to create social change, and they’ll give us a glimpse into some of the groundbreaking campaigns they’ve worked on for the betterment of animal rights.
For our review, we’ll give you a look into our kitchen – specifically, to the section of it known as “Kitchen Appliance Wonderland.” We’ll give you the skinny on two of our appliances that we simply cannot live without.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
