EPISODE 295: RENEE KING-SONNEN FROM ROWDY GIRL SANCTUARY, AND LABOR ISSUES IN ANIMAL AGRICULTURE
By Jasmin and Mariann — September 05, 2015
Welcome to the 295th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Renee King-Sonnen from Rowdy Girl Sanctuary, and a discussion of the rights of workers in animal agriculture with OHH’s Alessandra Seiter. As always, the Our Hen House podcast is co-hosted by us — Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan.
On today’s episode, we squawk about veganizing both Periscope and Greek coffee places; the power (or hindrance?) of “vegetable-forward”; and the confusion that comes with criticizing our comrades.
Joining us today for our feature interview is the one and only Renee King-Sonnen from Rowdy Girl Sanctuary, who will squawk about her journey from rancher to animal rescuer. She’ll sing, too… about animals. And you’ll want to hear it. (And you’ll want to have tissues nearby.)
Then, since it’s Labor Day weekend, OHH’s Alessandra Seiter — of the blog Chickpeas and Change — will chat with us about the working conditions that workers in animal agriculture face.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights. There’s lots of Rising Anxieties today, too, so hold onto your tofu. The Our Hen House podcast is co-hosted by us —Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan.
