Call in to speak with the host
Today Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian welcomes Gene Baur who is president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary. Gene Baur has been hailed as “the conscience of the food movement” by Time magazine. For 25 years, he has traveled extensively, campaigning to raise awareness about the abuses of industrialized factory farming and our cheap food system. Gene has visited hundreds of farms, stockyards, and slaughterhouses documenting the deplorable conditions that exist. His pictures and videos exposing factory farming cruelties have aired nationally and internationally, educating millions about the plight of modern farm animals. His efforts have been covered by top news organizations, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and The Wall Street Journal. Gene’s book, Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food, was a national bestseller. Gene holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from California State University, Northridge, and a master’s degree in agricultural economics from Cornell University. Now available: Laura’s new book, Jazzy Vegetarian Classics: Vegan Twists on American Family Favorites.
It's good to talk.
