Episode 134: “If you want to know where you would have stood on slavery before the Civil War, don’t look at where you stand on slavery today. Look at where you stand on animal rights.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — August 04, 2012

Welcome to the 134th episode of Our Hen House, featuring JL Fields of JL Goes Vegan.

In today’s episode, we will give you the skinny on everything from the screening of Maximum Tolerated Dose we attended here in Portland, to the newest grain to make our hearts and stomachs sing, to the isinglass-ignorant winery employee that made us see red (and we don’t mean red wine), to inspiring conversations we overheard at Veggie Grill, to the madness of Last Thursdays on Alberta Street, to the restaurant whose incredible vegan menu made an irksome snafu.

Joining us today is JL Fields, of JL Goes Vegan. This powerhouse activist will talk to us about the truly groundbreaking grassroots work she is doing in her community and beyond to bring veganism to the fore. Be prepared to leave inspired and hungry — hungry for change, and, potentially, for chili.

For our review, we’ll talk about the film, Charlotte’s Web, from an animal rights perspective.

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

This week’s news items include:

    Awesome to hear from JL! She is very inspirational too. I am always excited when people just do it. I've definitely spent way too much time not doing anything except nomming vegan foods. Turns out EB White was not only not a vegetarian, but he raised pigs in between working at the New Yorker. The good news though is that his stories plant the seeds of veganism in young kids.

      Wow, really? That's horrible! But yes, hopefully there is some good that comes from EB's work. And thanks for listening. So happy you liked the episode. JL is indeed AMAZING and we were excited to share her story on the show. xo

    That's a great quote. I wish more people looked at animal rights this way.
