Episode 204: “Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — December 07, 2013

Welcome to the 204th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Anthony Bellotti [transcript], with a special appearance by Nava Atlas.

In today’s episode, we’ll squawk about our unusual and outrageous vegan Thanksgiving; the power of independent media – such as Brooklyn Independent Media; our recent pint-sized podcast guest who crashed the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade; and the inherent cowardice of complacency. (Sometimes we’ve just got to take a side!) And, of course, we’ll chat about “Rising Anxieties,” including the latest hilarity to come from the beef and dairy industries.

Joining us today is Anthony Bellotti, the guy behind White Coat Waste Project, a new organization that’s going after government-funded vivisection on the grounds that it is a total waste of the tax-payer’s money. You won’t want to miss what Anthony has to say!

Then, we’ll be joined by long-time animal advocate, vegan ambassador, author, and artist Nava Atlas, who is sharing with us her Top Ten Tips for Surviving the Holidays as a Vegan.

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