Episode 228: “The world is a dangerous place to live — not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — May 24, 2014

podcastWelcome to the 228th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Ellen Jaffe Jones [transcript], with a special review by Ethan Ciment and Michael Suchman. On today’s episode — and, warning, we’re downright loopy today — we squawk about oppressive shirt messages that suck; what our Brooklyn neighborhood is doing that yours probably isn’t; a little friend in trouble we met in our backyard; and why life is a Cabaret. There’s plenty of “Rising Anxieties” to report today, too. Joining us is Ellen Jaffe Jones, a former TV journalist and current-day vegan author and runner who is changing people’s perceptions about everything from the Paleo Diet, to the cost of veganism. Then, joining us are the guys from Vegan Mos — Ethan Ciment and Michael Suchman — who will be reviewing Brendan Brazier’s new cookbook, Thrive Foods: 200 Plant-based Recipes for Peak Health. All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
