This very special extra episode is a compilation of interviews we have conducted over the years with our dear friend and passionate animal advocate Sherry Colb, who, as you may know, died last month.
These interviews range from our first encounter with Sherry, when she came on to talk about her book, Mind if I Order the Cheeseburger? And Other Questions People Ask Vegans, to an interview, along with Michael Dorf, about their book Beating Hearts: Abortion and Animal Rights, to a discussion on the Animal Law Podcast about her choice to teach a law school class in Animal Rights rather than Animal Law, and a few shorter appearances to enlighten us on specific issues. They are all characterized by her incisive thinking, her clarity of thought, her sometimes biting sense of humor and, fundamentally, her unrelenting advocacy for animals.
Sherry Colb was the C.S. Wong Professor of Law at Cornell Law School. She had been valedictorian of her high school class and then valedictorian of her class at Columbia College. After Harvard Law School, she clerked with Second Circuit Judge Wilfred Feinberg and then Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun. She was frequently quoted in The New York Times and elsewhere, and was a prolific writer, including in her regular columns on Verdict and Dorf On Law. Beyond her amazing genius, she was also a truly wonderful person and will be dearly missed.
