Welcome to the 85th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Carol J. Adams.
In today’s episode, we explore vegan mentions in non-vegan-specific books, examine our I-just-don’t-get-it attitude towards avant garde art and how we’d much rather look at a bird, ruminate on hope and whether it’s justified, and get you up to speed on some personal happenings in our lives. Today we come to you from Sag Harbor, where we’re visiting family and searching for a good vegan meal.
Joining us today is Carol J. Adams, author of the critically-acclaimed book, The Sexual Politics of Meat, which was just republished for its 20th anniversary. Carol will chat with us about everything from how the feminist-vegetarian scene has changed since she wrote the book, to her thoughts on the fictionalized version of her that appeared on the “Beef episode” of Law and Order SVU.
For our review, we’ll share our thoughts on Dr. Michael Greger’s newest nutritional DVD, which examines everything vegans and not-yet-vegans need to know about the latest health research. You won’t want to miss this review on an eye-opening – not to mention artery-opening – DVD.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
This week’s news items include:
