Welcome to the 318th episode of Our Hen House, featuring raw vegan runners from down under Alan Murray and Janette Murray-Wakelin. Plus, Alessandra Seiter gives us an overview of some amazing animals’ reproduction. As always, the award-winning, weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by us — Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan.
Find out what Mariann and Rose have been up to while Jasmin’s been on tour. (Have your heard about Jasmin’s book, Always Too Much and Never Enough?? Check out the latest at jasminsinger.com.) Jasmin meows about three of the world’s greatest cats! And the Hens take some questions from listeners.
In today’s episode, you’ll be inspired by Alan Murray and Janette Murray-Wakelin.

This episode is sponsored by A Well-Fed World. A Well-Fed World is a hunger relief and animal protection organization chipping away at two of the world’s most immense, unnecessary and unconscionable forms of suffering… the suffering of people hungry from lack of food, and the suffering of animals used and abused for food. Mending our unjust food system is a critical part of solving the world’s most destructive and persistent problems. Fortunately, the plant-based foods that promote health and well-being are the same foods that conserve resources to better feed the world, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the environment. A Well-Fed World provides the means for change by empowering individuals, social justice organizations, and political decisionmakers to embrace the benefits of plant-based foods and farming.

All that, vegan banter, and plenty of “Rising Anxieties,” too, so hold onto your apples!
