Our 12th show features an interview with Jenny Brown and Ashley Smith of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in Woodstock, NY. Jenny and her husband Doug bought the undeveloped land two years ago and have since built pastures and barns and filled them with rescued farm animals including goats, sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys. The sanctuary is set to open to the public this summer and Jenny and Ashley share their stories of starting the farm and some of the animals that live there.
On January 1st 1996 the Vegan Radio co-hosts went vegan together, and on the 10th anniversary of this event they go back to Rochester NY to talk to the friends, family and influential people they knew back then. In this show (part 1) they talk to people they knew during the time they were active in the Rochester Animal Defense League (ADL), including Joe Connelly, editor of VegNews magazine, Nicole Rogers, Anna Hartwell, Tammi McBath, Burly Matt, Rob & Jen, and Steve Grills.
