Episode 131: “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — July 14, 2012

Welcome to the 131st episode of Our Hen House, featuring Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Katie Olson, and Brian Endl.

In today’s episode, we are still on the road as part of our Great American Road Trip from NYC to Portland. We’ll pick up where we left off last week, telling you all about our travels on the 2-lane Rt. 20, throughout the Indiana Dutch Country, Indiana Dunes, Chicago, rural Illinois, Kansas City, Iowa, Omaha, O’Neill, NE, Wyoming, and a whole lot more. We’ll share with you our surprisingly delicious vegan tales from the road, and our unsurprisingly brutal glimpses into animal agribusiness.

Throughout our trip, we will bring you interviews with Brian Endl, whose entirely vegan brewery in Rockford, IL —Pig Minds Brewing — was a very welcome surprise; Katie Olson in Kansas City, the mastermind behind the entirely vegan and gluten-free Brody’s Bakery; and a very special chat with vegan rockstar Isa Chandra Moskowitz, who relocated to Omaha a couple of years ago. During our visit to Omaha, Isa fed us directly from her garden, and shared the glorious news of her brand new upcoming vegan cookbook deal – her 8th publication! — which will surely take the world by storm, one delicious concoction at a time.

For our review, we’ll talk all about the German-made documentary, Our Daily Bread, which goes behind the scenes of industrial food production, including, of course, into the hideous world of animal agriculture. This hour and a half film, with absolutely no narration except the sounds of conveyor belts and machines, is one that everyone who cares about animals should get their hands on. Don’t miss our account of Our Daily Bread.

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