Welcome to the 212th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Joanna Rohrback [transcript] — the Prancercise woman herself! — with a special review by Danielle Legg.
In today’s episode, Jasmin will tell you about an article she wrote that caused her email box to be filled with notes from old friends, new friends, and several hundred strangers who insist they know her better than she knows herself. We’ll give you the skinny, so to speak.
We’ll also share stories of Mariann’s animal law classes, which she started up teaching again for the semester, and we’ll let you in on why it’s incredibly coincidental, given the huge life change we’re going through this week, that today’s episode is number two-one-two.
We’ll squawk about art, and why a lot of people consider it a more legitimate excuse for animal exploitation than they do for other things. The examples we have might haunt you.
We’ve got Rising Anxieties too, of course, including some truly laughable fodder, from the industry itself, about – among other things – why HSUS is trying to take over the world. And we’ll discuss why some people’s anxieties are rising, while others’ are experiencing a rising consciousness.
Joining us today is – Oh my god! – the Prancercise woman herself, Joanna Rohrback. You’ve seen her Prancercising all over the Internet, but what you didn’t know was that Joanna is a long-time ethical vegan! She’ll touch you with her worldview and her stories, and move you as she inspires you to move. Do not miss this fantastic interview with this Internet sensation who cares just as much about animals as she does about Prancercise.
For our review, Our Hen House’s Outreach Manager, Danielle Legg, will give us her list of absolute Must-Have Make-Up Essentials – all vegan, of course.
