Episode 232: “Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victim he intends to eat, until he eats them.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — June 21, 2014

1590564545_cf200Welcome to the 232nd episode of Our Hen House, featuring Matt Ball [transcript], with special guest Noah Gittell.

In today’s episode, we will squawk about pushy canvassers and what we can learn from them; overusing certain buzz words within animal rights; and we’ll give you lots of “Rising Anxieties” too — including a snarky article talking about how fabulous vegan food can (rarely) be … Why does this kind of attitude give us hope? You’ll find out.

Joining us today is longtime activist and writer Matt Ball, whose brand new book The Accidental Activist (Lantern, 2014) — will inspire you to think of your day-to-day actions from a new light which might just help animals.

For our review, film critic Noah Gittell will be giving us his two cents on the film How to Train Your Dragon II, from an animal rights perspective.

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