Welcome to the 227th episode of the Our Hen House podcast, featuring D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus [transcript], with special guest Noah Gittell [transcript].
In today’s episode, we share our thoughts on Mark Bittman’s new proclamation that he doesn’t support veganism; we’ll give you the skinny on a conversation Jasmin had with a concerned baker regarding bone char in sugar; and we will respond to some of your complaints about last week’s episode. There’s lots of juicy “Rising Anxieties,” too, which you won’t want to miss.
Joining us today are famed, award-winning filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, whose current project — Unlocking the Cage — is shedding light on Steve Wise‘s Nonhuman Animal Rights Project in a major way.
Also joining us is writer and film critic Noah Gittell, who will be talking to us all about the use of CGI to end animal exploitation in film.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
