It's that time of year again - KBOOs Bread and Roses Collective, with hosts Carole and Nico,is set to bring you the CHICKEN TALK SHOW, a 2 hour special this Friday, May 15, 2009 from 6-8pm. Guests include Lisa Ewing, a chicken trainer at the Avian Medical Center. She'll do a live, on-air chicken training demo and will answer callers' questions about chickens. Growing Gardens will be there too. They sponsor the yearly "Tour De Coops," a tour of backyard chicken coops in Portland. And: chicken stories, chicken songs, and other surprises await you.
Is human nature good or evil? Can you move beyond your past if you were raised on a commune? Does industrial livestock farming of pigs and poultry lead to new diseases? These are the questions raised on this program, hosted by the Old Mole's Denise Morris.

Erin will be signing copies of her book and giving a presentation called "Why Farm Animals Matter"on Tuesday, February 3, from 7:00 pm - 8:30 p.m. at Portland State University Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 101
Why Animals Matter examines how people abuse animals, gives suggestions on how to take action, and connects animal protection, environmental and social justice issues. Publishers Weekly praised the book as "a tough but fair-minded revelation of how mass production of animals for food and other purposes results in cruelty that usually remains hidden from sight."
