"Cruelty Free Products in Dublin" show pre-recorded

With all March shows fully scheduled, Thomas Janak and his girlfriend recently went to town to "hunt down" shops that offer meat-free and cruelty-free products. The interviewees of this show, which is scheduled for APRIL 4th 2009, include Jack Irwin from DOWN TO EARTH, members of staff from NOURISH, HEALTH MATTERS, THE BODY SHOP and Phil West from CORNUCOPIA.

Special thanks to Phil by the way as he was so generous and treated Thomas and his girlfriend Nicole, who took all the pictures posted below, for a lovely piece of cake free of charge. As a radio program maker "threatening people with a microphone" one very rarely gets spoiled like that. A brilliant ending to an exciting Saturday morning on the hunt for cruelty - free products!

Show on March 6th

Laura Broxton from the National Animal Rights Association (NARA)was Thomas Janak's guest on the show on March 6th. Our deepest apologies to Bob Wilson, with whom Thomas had scheduled a phone interview. Unfortunately all lines were down and no outbound calls were possible.

Laura and Thomas talked about artist Seamus Nolan and his infamous art exhibition in Drogheda, anti fur campaigns, veganism/vegetarianism and pro's and con's of ZOOs.

Laura will be back on March 20th helping Thomas with his show about vegetarianism and the effects of meat production on the planet.
