Welcome to the 259th episode of Our Hen House, featuring an interview from Alissa Hauser and Ariel Nessel of The Pollination Project, and a review of Miyoko’s Kitchen Vegan Cheese by Alessandra Seiter.
In today’s episode, we discuss bocce ball, having hope, oxford shoes addictions, and why we should all support indie media. There’s lots of “Rising Anxieties,” too, of course, so worry not.
Joining us today are Ariel Nessel and Alissa Hauser from The Pollination Project, a forward-thinking organization founded by Ari, which gives away $1,000 a day in startup grant money to individual changemakers and projects that promote compassion around the world. Ari and Alissa will share their unique take on philanthropy, and on why animal rights is so near to their hearts, and to their life missions.
Then, Our Hen House’s own Media Coordinator Alessandra Seiter — the mastermind behind the blog Farmer’s Market Vegan — will be giving us her official take on Miyoko Schinner’s new vegan cheeses, a food that might single-handedly change the shape of veganism as we know it.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
