Welcome to the 60th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Pamela Frasch from the Center for Animal Law Studies, and Scot Fitzsimmons from the vegan shoe store, Sudo Shoes.
In today’s episode, we come to you from Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Mariann is a judge in the Center for Animal Law Studies’ moot court competition at Harvard Law School.
As usual, we are eating our way through the city and reporting on our scrumptions vegan findings.
We’ll be chatting with Scot Fitzsimmons, owner of Cambridge’s brand new all-vegan shoe store, Sudo Shoes. Then, joining us will be Pamela Frasch, Assistant Dean of the Lewis and Clark Law School Animal Law Program & Executive Director of the Center for Animal Law Studies.
