Welcome to the 93rd episode of Our Hen House, featuring Maneesha Deckha, Bruce Wagman, Jaclyn Leeds, Peter Sankoff, Sarah Baeckler, Kristen Stilt, and Joyce Tischler.
In today’s episode, we tell you about the eye-opening and brilliant “Animals in the Arts” presentation created and presented by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau that we attended at Alexander Gray Associates here in New York City. We’ll also share with you some big news for Our Hen House – to the tune of being named the Indie Media Powerhouse of 2011 by VegNews Magazine. Oh, and in other big news, Jasmin will talk about her newly platinum hair.
This week we come to you from Portland, Oregon, where we were speakers at the annual Lewis and Clark Animal Law Conference. In honor of this one-of-a-kind conference, today’s episode is an extended one, and features several concise interviews with some of the movers and shakers from the world of animal law. Talking to us today are such luminaries as Maneesha Deckha, Bruce Wagman, Jaclyn Leeds, Peter Sankoff, Sarah Baeckler, Kristin Stilt, and Joyce Tischler. Today’s episode will undoubtedly prove revelatory for non-lawyers, budding lawyers, and seasoned lawyers.
For our review, we will give you our top 5 animal law related films that everyone should see.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
