20 Reasons to Support Our Hen House

By Jasmin and Mariann — December 23, 2019

As we nearly close out 2019 and get ready for Our Hen House’s ten-year anniversary (happening in just a few weeks), we want to thank you for making OHH so central to your community. There are so many reasons to keep vegan media alive, but rather than have us list them, we’re going to let you list them. Below are some of our favorite podcast reviews from the past year, pointing to the utmost importance of keeping our shows going strong in 2020 and beyond. As we write this, we still have nearly $6,000 to raise as part of our end-of-year fundraising campaign. Our very generous Barnyard Benefactors are matching your donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $15,000, and so we simply have to raise these additional $6,000 ASAP. We sincerely hope you’ll help us get there by making a tax-deductible donation today. And thank you for all you do to change the world for animals—we’re all they’ve got. Here are 20 reasons why we hope you’ll donate.

  1. BUILDING COMMUNITY

“This is the first year I’ve discovered your podcast and it has definitely changed my life. I have a long commute from our small farm sanctuary to where I work during business hours each day, driving past massive factory farms. So your work is one of my beacons. I cannot thank you all enough. You’re the best interviewers I’ve ever heard and your message is inspiring beyond words!”

  1. ADDRESSING RECIDIVISM 

“I found your podcast when I first decided to become vegan. Your podcast has helped shed light on so many topics; I am forever grateful!”

  1. WOMEN-FOUNDED

“You ladies are awesome and I can’t wait to hear more!!!”

  1. AUTHENTIC CONVERSATIONS 

I love the podcast, the guests they interview, the authentic conversations they have on so many subjects, and the difference they are making in the world with the information they bring to their listeners. This is one of my favorite podcasts! Role models for sure.”

  1. CONSISTENT PROGRAMMING

“I am so glad you exist. So much I learn and discover about what is happening in the world of animal rights, veganism and social justice. It’s extremely useful in my daily life, where I am often engaging with people and often can use what I have learned through your podcast. Both interviewers are top-notch, masters on asking relevant and well-thought questions. Guests are truly inspiring, amazing people that—through a wide range of expertise—manage to make the world a better place for animals. Despite having just briefly met Mariann once, I feel you both truly love the work you do and it shows on every new episode.”

  1. MAKING COMPLEX ISSUES ACCESSIBLE

“Fascinating discussions about topics I never knew I cared about (but now realize I definitely do!). Mariann, Jasmin, and their guests discuss complex issues in such an accessible, thought-provoking and interesting way. I’m learning so much about how the world is for animals and the creative ways people are changing it. Very addictive show, a must-listen for anyone that cares about animals, people and the world.”

  1. ENJOYABLE BANTER

“I love the breadth and depth of this podcast and the easygoing back-and-forth between Jasmin and Mariann. They’re bright and funny. I like how they address not only the current issues but, sometimes, take a hard look at others’ – and their own – coverage of them. I look forward to it every week.”

  1. KEEPING OUR SHOWS FREE FOR ALL TO ACCESS

“I truly enjoy the Our Hen House podcast. I look forward to listening to it each week. Mariann and Jasmin are great! I wish I could afford to donate money to their podcast.”

  1. STAYING ON TOP OF ANIMAL RIGHTS-RELATED NEWS

“I love Our Hen House! It’s a great way to keep up with vegan news and animal rights issues I care about. I feel more connected to the world around me, and to the vegan community as whole, because of this wonderful show. Jasmin and Mariann really have the ability to make me laugh and feel hope even in the midst of hearing painful news and updates that would otherwise made me cry. Thank you so much for your podcast, it’s changed my life. I’m a loyal fan for life!”

  1. HARNESSING THE POWER OF HOPE

“Incredible podcast. Makes me feel less alone in this crazy mixed up world. Always engaging, always thought-provoking, and always upbeat even when dealing with necessary, dark subject matter.”

  1. ENCOURAGING SELF-REFLECTION

“I started listening to this podcast about a month ago and have become a dedicated listener since then. Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan are so much fun to listen to, and week after week they have on the show the most amazing, forward-thinking leaders on a wide range of topics relating to animal welfare and veganism. It’s amazing food for thought, which often includes practical information for listeners who may want to find new ways to become more involved themselves in animal causes. For example, I’ve just learned about the New Leaf Vegan Mentor program at Catskill Animal Sanctuary through which anyone can potentially find a mentor to help them go or stay vegan, or can sign up to become a mentor themselves – very cool!! Many thanks for the wonderful podcast!”

  1. OFFERING NEXT STEPS FOR ADVOCATES

“Action-oriented, positive spin on what’s an often depressing topic – animal welfare. Every interview is a fascinating new perspective, and I love the sassy rapport of Jasmin and Mariann! I recommend OHH to acquaintances and definitely feel more a part of the awesome – and always growing – vegan community.”

  1. BRINGING A GLOBAL NETWORK OF VEGANS TO YOU

“You all sound really wonderful and I really enjoyed listening to your podcast. I’m a lifelong vegan and I love to hear other vegans talk about the vegan lifestyle. Major good changes are happening.”

  1. PRIORITIZING TRANSPARENCY 

“I’m completely crazy about this podcast. It’s enormously enriching, brilliantly candid, fantastically insightful, AND keeps me up-to-date on animal advocacy current events. Thank you Jasmin and Mariann for bringing us the premium content!!”

  1. FOREVER FEMINIST

“Essential listening for vegans! Interviews with all the names in the movement, brought together by the very smart, honest and well-informed hosts. The feminist vibe is strong as well!”

  1. LAUGHING TOGETHER AT RIDICULOUSNESS 

“I’ve listened to Our Hen House since the beginning and it just keeps getting better! I love the intersectionality of the discussions, I’ve learned SO much! And speaking as someone who struggles with feeling hopeful about the state of animals in this world, Our Hen House is a sparkler in a dark room and is constantly making me feel hopeful and that this fight is worth keeping up because we can do it! And the segment ‘Rising Anxieties’ proves that we ARE doing it! With tremendous help from resources like Our Hen House 🙂 It’s also hard sometimes to be the only vegan in the room, or the family, or the class and being able to pop my headphones on and listen to people speak about animals as if their lives have meaning beyond our desires for their bodies and babies … It’s valuable beyond words. Ok, what else… I love the occasional cursing, I love the banter, I love the guest choices, uh, such a GEM!! Also highly recommend Jasmin’s book ‘Always Too Much and Never Enough’ (read by the author) and the Animal Law Podcast that Mariann does!!”     

  1. EMBOLDENING OUR GLOBAL NETWORK TO TAKE ACTION 

“Our Hen House is one of my favourite podcasts to listen to. I am constantly inspired as well as entertained by these two very smart ladies and their guests. Thank you from Australia.”

  1. TAKING YOUR ACTIVISM TO THE NEXT LEVEL

“Mariann and Jasmin keep us updated on current events regarding all-things animal activism. This podcast is a must-listen and must-subscribe if you are a serious advocate for animals. Each interview brings us closer to the truths of animals. I’d suggest going one step further and joining the Our Hen House Flock for a small monthly donation. You are then supporting this wonderful show and you’ll receive a bonus or two in the process. Go to their website for more info.”

  1. A SAFE PLACE TO WAKE UP TO REALITY

Just found you guys and SO excited. I became vegan four years ago, after waking up to what I was eating and how this contributes to the destruction of our environment, as well as, the tremendous and unspeakable cruelty to animals. After watching Earthings, I am also one (I know there are many of us), who vehemently declared, I WILL NEVER EAT ANIMALS AGAIN. I can no longer look into the eyes of my precious dogs, (four of them – Rudy, Pepper, Chloe and Winnie) and my fish (Blue), and not think of animal suffering. In fact, I’m always thinking of animal suffering.”

  1. CONNECTING VEGANS WITH EACH OTHER

“I’ve been a long-time listener, and am excited to finally be part of flock! I began listening a year-and-a-half ago when I was really searching for community, and was able to find it through Our Hen House. I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua, in a community where no one had ever heard of the concept of veganism… Rather than, ‘Where do you get your protein,’ questions were normally more along the lines of, ‘How are you alive?’ Being a passionate ethical vegan, it was incredibly isolating, and Our Hen House played a major role in helping sustain me throughout it all. However, guiltily, being limited to my $210 monthly salary, I had never made a donation until this point. After all the support I have received from OHH, now that I am back in the U.S. I look forward to playing a small role in to help support OHH moving forward. Thanks for all you do, in connecting ethical vegans from around the world! It really is changing the world for non-human and human animals alike.”

Please consider SUPPORTING OUR HEN HOUSE TODAY.

THANK YOU!

Sincerely,

Jasmin Singer & Mariann Sullivan
