Welcome to the 111th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Dawn Moncrieffe from A Well-Fed World.
In today’s episode, we’ll talk all about the recent episode of “What Would You Do?” that asked the question, “Is It Un-American to Avoid Meat?” Then, we’ll ruminate on the word “vegan” and what we think it means. Some of you might find you disagree with us. So be it…
Joining us today is Dawn Moncrieffe, the Founder and Executive Director of A Well-Fed World. Dawn will talk to us all about how and why we can feed so many more people in the world. She’ll also give us some insight into commonly asked questions regarding meat-eating and land use. Dawn will give us a glimpse into some groundbreaking campaigns that A Well-Fed World is working on, including one that revolves around peanut butter and jelly.
For our review, we’ll talk about the old movie with Jane Fonda and Robert Redford, The Electric Horseman.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
