Welcome to the 268th episode of Our Hen House, featuring an interview with Yolanda Eisenstein and a review by Ari Solomon.
On today’s episode, we squawk about everything from spinning so-called negative news as it relates to animals with positivity; to David Duchovny’s new book about animal rights (and what it means when he calls himself a “lazy vegetarian”); to a hotel chain that wants to change the world for a few very lucky dogs.
Joining us today will be animal law attorney Yolanda Eisenstein, who will tell us all about her new book — Careers in Animal Law: Welfare, Protection, and Advocacy — which covers a very important topic: that of laws that anyone with a dog needs to know about.
Also joining us is our reviewer Ari Solomon, who will squawk about a brand new novel, Persimmon Takes On Humanity by Christopher Locke, which tells the story of a clever raccoon who takes it upon herself to defend those in need.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
