This week Jasmin talks to Brittany Michelson (@brittanyforanimals) about her new book, Voices For Animal Liberation, which features a chapter by Jasmin herself! Brittany is a fantastic and vital activist who has compiled an important book from some of the greatest voices in the animal rights movement. In this interview she tells us about the creation and publication processes for the book and how she hopes it will reach people. She also gives us an amazing reading from her chapter!
Brittany Michelson is a teacher, writer, and animal rights activist. She holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Antioch University Los Angeles and teaches writing and activism-related classes in a private K–8 program. Brittany’s writings appear in multiple journals and literary sites. She lives in the Los Angeles area.
In the intro to the show, Mariann and Jasmin talk about their concerns about coronavirus, their concerns about climate change, and the hazards of picking up a coffee habit. Also, Jasmin reads from her chapter of our guest Brittany Michelson’s book! Try not to touch your face while listening! Later in the episode, Mariann brings us Rising Anxieties!
