Episode 113: “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — March 10, 2012

Welcome to the 113th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Doron Petersan and Michelle Schwegmann. 

In today’s episode, we ponder about the mindset of vegetarians: Why stop half-way? We share some updates about the latest ag-gag laws and we give you our feelings about this movement toward repressing activists’ voices and their First Amendment rights. Plus, we tell you about the latest Rethinking Animals lecture we attended here in New York.

Telling us all about the NYC VegFest is Michelle Schwegmann, co-owner of the center of Portland, OR’s vegan mecca, Herbivore Clothing. Also joining us today is Doron Petersan, founder of Sticky Fingers Vegan Bakery, and author of the new Sticky Fingers cookbook. Listen closely for your chance to win your very own copy of this cookbook!

For our review, we’ll discuss a performance art piece we attended entitled The Homo Bonobo Project.

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

This week’s news items include:

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage” -Anais Nin

    Was it a conscious choice to not name the network and call the show that Dorian won "Food Wars" and not the actual name? I know what you meant though.They had an all vegan "food wars" show recently too but I don't know where that fell with the recording and interview on this podcast.

    Another great podcast! I have been hearing about you guys forever and only just realizing how I should have been paying so much closer attention. There was a quote in this show that I now can't find. I listened to the show over the course of the day and now can't remember at what point in the show you guys said the quote. It was something about being aware of the animals we enslave/exploit without thinking about it. Help?

    found it! "What enslaves us that we won't give up?"
