On this show, Lori welcomed an extraordinary guest and a leader in the field of Animals Rights. Dr. Alex Hershaft, Founder and President of Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) told the story of his journey from the Warsaw ghetto to a life of advocating for the rights of non-human animals. The parallels he draws between the treatment of victims of the Holocaust and animals in our food industry are hard to dismiss.
Then Lori celebrated the recent announcement by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus that they will discontinue using elephants. But why is it going to take a few years to implement? And what about all the other abused animal performers?
