Episode 370: Carter Dillard and Richard Bowie (Correct File)

By Jasmin and Mariann — February 11, 2017

Welcome to the 370th episode of Our Hen House!

Mariann welcomes Carter Dillard, Director of Litigation for the Animal Legal Defense Fund and President of She talks with him about his work with Having Kids, about the ethics of having kids, and how this relates to the animal rights movement. You’ll find lots of food for thought within this provocative interview!

Richard Bowie, Associate Editor at VegNews, is back with Jasmin for the second half of his series on trends for veganism and animal rights in 2017. There’s plenty more in store!

Mariann covers News and Rising Anxieties, of course! And she also talks about the documentary “Eating You Alive.”

As always, the award-winning weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by Mariann Sullivan and Jasmin Singer.


This episode is brought to you in part through the generosity of A Well-Fed World. A Well-Fed World is a hunger relief and animal protection organization chipping away at two of the world’s most immense, unnecessary and unconscionable forms of suffering… the suffering of people hungry from lack of food, and the suffering of animals used and abused for food. Mending our unjust food system is a critical part of solving the world’s most destructive and persistent problems. Fortunately, the plant-based foods that promote health and well-being are the same foods that conserve resources to better feed the world, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the environment. A Well-Fed World provides the means for change by empowering individuals, social justice organizations, and political decision makers to embrace the benefits of plant-based foods and farming.
