Welcome to the 317th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Susan Hargreaves, founder and Executive Director of Animal Hero Kids. Plus, Alessandra Seiter reminds us to bee kind to bees. As always, the award-winning, weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by us — Jasmin Singerand Mariann Sullivan.
So grateful for the amazing attendance at Jasmin’s book launch event! Really honored to see ‘old’ friends and meet new ones. Huge hugs to David Cabrera, Alexander Gray, and the entire team over at Alexander Gray Associates!
Hope you’ll rave about my reading like we rave about the matinee performance of Hamilton we saw. It’s worth all the hype!
Today, we’re joined by Susan Hargreaves, who’s been
inspiring, encouraging, and recognizing young activists through Animal Hero Kids, the all-volunteer organization she founded 34 years ago. She’ll tell some amazing stories about children speaking up for animals.
And we’ll hear all the buzz about bees from Alessandra Seiter, with some revealing bathtub dreams.
This episode is sponsored by the amazing Main Street Vegan Academy. The brainchild of Main Street Vegan author Victoria Moran, this is a 6-day training that results in certification as a Vegan Lifestyle Coach and Educator. The curriculum covers ever aspect of vegan living and vegan business, and you’ll learn from top-notch instructors including cardiologist Dr. Robert Ostfeld, fashion designers Joshua Katcher and Leanne Hilgart, and vegan business powerhouse JL Fields, as well as us Hens! And there are field trips to NYC’s hottest vegan stores, restaurants, and businesses. All the information is at www.mainstreetvegan.net. Invest a week and — maybe — change everything.
All that, vegan banter, and plenty of “Rising Anxieties,” too! So grab your favorite vegan butch or butcher and let’s get squawking!
