Throughout February, we’ve been looking at themes of love. Today, it’s love of animals. My stunning guests are authors and activists making real difference in the world.
In the first segment, I speak with Kathryn Gillespie, PhD, geographer and social scientist whose book, The Cow with Ear Rage #1389, “translates the journey from a living cow to a glass of milk into tangible terms.”
In segment two, I welcome back to the program a true activist’s activist, Mark Hawthorne, whose classic, Striking at the Roots: A Practical Guide to Animal Activism, has been revised, expanded, updated, and re-released in a 10th anniversary edition including, for the first time, a powerful and practical chapter called, “Animal Care: Activists Are Animals Too.”
Blast from the past! If you’re interested in dairy and dairy cows, another insightful book on that subject is Cash Cow: 10 Myths About the Dairy Industry. She appeared on the show back in 2016: https://mainstreetvegan.net/msv-show-notes-feb-17-2016-harlem-soul-dairy-less-in-montreal/.
