Welcome to the 100th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Peter Singer and Isa Chandra Moskowitz.
In today’s monumental episode, we will talk about the Food Activism for the Holidays workshop we gave last week, and we’ll share with you our thoughts on how to get a good holiday vegan meal at a non-vegan restaurant. We’ll also sing a few original songs – including “The 12 Days of Carnivorous Christmas.”
Joining us for episode 100 are two of our favorite past guests: Famed ethicist and author of the groundbreaking book Animal Liberation, Peter Singer, and bestselling vegan cookbook author, Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Peter will talk with us about his views on the current state of the animal liberation movement, and Isa will talk about what she dubs “baketivism.”
Then, as part of our special 100th episode, we’ll be answering your questions! You asked us about everything from how to handle kids who want to go to zoos, to how to find inspiration for juice-fasting, to what our plans are for 2012 with Our Hen House. Today, we’ll answer those – and more. At the end of the episode, we’ll announce the very lucky winner of the $100 gift certificate to MooShoes.
