Episode 110: “Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — February 18, 2012

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.

This week’s news items include:

“Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act.” -Albert Einstein

    Great podcast again, ladies! You were cracking me up about the gifts for each other. :) I could even hear my husband laughing from the next room when he heard that part.There's a great movie I think you might like that came out last year, called I Am. It's not an animal rights movie, but there are many relevant connections that can be drawn. I blogged about it after I saw it ( and I haven't been able to shut up about it around friends. I want to buy it for everybody.Anyway, you might dig it. Enjoy! And thanks for making my Saturday morning's bright! I start off with an incredible session of bikram yoga, and then come home to enjoy your podcast and a green smoothie. Love Saturdays! (I'll be contributing to Our Hen House soon....Things are a mite tight right now, but it is on my mind to do as soon as we have some wiggle room.)

    Thank you for providing a great forum for a conversation like this to even happen in the first place. We hope we offered something of value, especially to nonprofits and activist groups who want to do more PR and communications outreach. Like Mariann says, there is so much opportunity for making change through media, and we're delighted that we've now heard from several people who are considering this as a pathway to help animals.And if any student listeners have a few hours a week and want to intern, let us know!

    I'm behind! Finally yesterday I had a chance to listen. This was such a great episode. I really enjoyed the conversation about the PR required to send an effective and positive animal right's message. It gave me much to consider.I have to say the banter between you two when you talked about your kitchen appliances had me grinning from ear to ear. Your affection and humor and passion for all things fabulous/delicious came shining through. I have a compelling need to check out a steamer. And, if you're ever ready to talk about pressure cookers, alert me. You know I'm obsessed! ;)

    I love K and G and when they were talking about their new pups I got a little teary-eyed.I did a month long feature on the pressure cooker in January that got A LOT of people on board and talking about it. I'm featuring a new cooking tool each month.
