In today’s episode, we give you our thoughts on a ridiculous article in Grist that seriously barked up the wrong tree; a new Chipotle ad that, on one hand, is completely wonderful, and on the other, is missing the point entirely; a new campaign to save the lives of unwanted dogs that is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before; the latest on vegans creating a stink in the news; and a new challenge from Our Hen House that is completely thrilling for us, but we need your help, chickens!
Joining us today is Israeli activist and lawyer Yossi Wolfson, who has been active in the animal rights movement since the 1980s. Yossi – who co-founded Anonymous for Animal Rights – will get us up to speed on the amazing things going on with the movement to end animal exploitation in Israel.
For our review, we welcome back to Our Hen House darling Ari Solomon, who will give us his take on the horror film, The Bay, which has surprising animal rights themes throughout it. (Plus, it’s completely adorable to listen to Ari review a horror movie, since he usually avoids them at all costs.)
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
