Nonhuman Radio – Episode 20-04

On today’s show we’ll be covering a few news stories, leading with a story on a proposal from Governor Gavin Newsom to make California a no-kill state, followed by a piece on poverty and pets from the Center for American Progress, followed by some news that Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream has dropped its “Happy Cows” advertising claims. We’ll end with a piece on how to veganize recipes with some simple cooking substitutes.

Nonhuman Radio – Episode 20-03

On today’s show we’ll be covering a story on the poor oversight of tragic barn fires, followed by a piece on a different interpretation of the changes we are seeing in the dairy industry, and a vegan company that offers a hand up, not a hand out, to struggling farmers — doing what farmers should be doing, growing food to feed people, not to feed animals. We’ll end with a little fluff from the world of entertainment as award shows start to offer plant-based, vegan meals at their glitzy events.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“If a staunch meat-eater looks at your snack of fresh veggies and doesn’t have a ‘good for you!’ in them, there’s no reason to value their opinion.” — Natalie Hanson-Ross, Journalist

Nonhuman Radio Episode 20-02

On today’s show we covered a few news stories, leading with a new trend in corporate divestment — divestment from the livestock sector. That will be followed by news of proposed legislation by vegan Senator Cory Booker, and short piece on the history of milk overproduction in the United States from the activist group Switch4Good. We’ll end with some extraordinary good news by a very special, very long-lived wild king eider.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Humans will always live with contradiction, but we can certainly try to minimize it. One way to do so simply, is to go vegan. It’s actually easier to just do that than to wrestle with the deep hypocrisy detailed so well so often. There’s real joy and peace–not to mention deliciousness and environmental respect–in the process.”
–Gretchen Primack, Poet
