Perhaps you’ve already heard of “Our Hen House” and the powerhouse couple behind it, Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan. In the past five years since founding the non-profit “Our Hen House”, the two have created a media hub for anyone who wants to change the world for animals. What makes Jasmin and Mariann unique is the flair, verve, and honesty they bring to their podcast (now over 255 episodes strong), their ebooks, their online magazine, and their frequent public appearances where they squawk about everything from Animal Law to writing for animal rights.
