Welcome to the 331st episode of Our Hen House, featuring Eric O’Grey with his story of double rescue. And Cynthia von Buhler presents The Illuminati Ball. As always, the award-winning, weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by us — Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan.
Hold on to your vegan hats! Today’s episode has loads of extra goodness. We squawk about spring, smart crows, tattoos, and how “we are everything to our animals.” Jasmin reads a question from an advice column, which leads to a charming Valentine’s day in Berkeley moment, among other topics. (Be sure to check out the latest from Jasmin’s book tour at jasminsinger.com.)
You’ll hear how Eric O’Grey changed his life by adopting Peety (and a vegan diet). And artist, director, and playwright Cynthia von Buhler talks about her latest play, The Illuminati Ball, featuring plant-based fare and an animal-centric story line.
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 decision makers to embrace the benefits of plant-based foods and farming.

All that, vegan banter, and plenty of “Rising Anxieties,” too! Pet your pets and let’s get squawking!
