Episode 244: “Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”

By Jasmin and Mariann — September 13, 2014

bookcoverWelcome to the 244th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Deirdre “Little Darling” Franklin [transcript].

In today’s episode, we are back with the banter and news that you know and love — and sometimes hate — us for. We’ll chat about why Mariann is comparing herself to France, we’ll squawk about famous pit bull puppies, and we’ll ruminate on the power of imperfect activism.

Joining us today is Deirdre “Little Darling” Franklin, the brains and beauty behind the Pinups for Pit Bulls movement, and the author of the brand new book by the same name. Deirdre will talk to us about her breathtaking advocacy to change the world for our darling maligned four-foot friends, and why she went the pinup route.

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

“The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.” ~Arthur Schopenhauer.
