Episode 171: “The function of the independent press (besides being essentially dissident) is still to discover, to find the new voices and give voice to them.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — April 20, 2013

Leilani Munter

Welcome to the 171st episode of Our Hen House, Official Honoree of the 2013 Webby Awards. Today’s episode features Leilani Munter.

In today’s episode, we discuss the magic of the Hudson Valley, vegan chocolate vaginas, and – speaking of which – feeling naked when interviewed by the press. We’ll ruminate about a question that frequently comes up when we give talks: that of whether veganism is the only answer. We’ll also ramble about handling questions about organic standards, and we’ll chat about the latest in ag-gag legislation.

Joining us today is professional race car driver and environmental activist, Leilani Munter. Leilani will talk to us about her vegan advocacy, including giving us the skinny on the VegNation Car, how she keeps her racing carbon-neutral, and her work mainstreaming the movement to save the ocean and its inhabitants. She’ll also tell us about the biggest challenges she faces as a woman in a sport dominated by men, as well as those she faces as a vegan and an activist in a meat-centric world.

For our review, we will tell you about the film, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead. Hold onto your hats, and your breakfasts.

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