Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I have ostensibly been missing out on Hands & Tails. My sincere apologies! Tomorrow, we will air a repeat show with Sean (Burn Planetarium) and Harri Palm about his 'WHALESCAPES' album.
In other news, we were interviewed by Teresa Pitman from AtGuelph: http://atguelph.uoguelph.ca/2012/05/radio-show-features-furry-and-feathered-friends/
In other news, I'm working at Bloorcourt vet clinic (Bloor St W. & Dufferin) this summer. Great clinic with great people! I'm sure I'll be crossing some interesting stories with the owners and furry critters there. We will also have a booth set up at Woofstock (more details to come later!)
Also, please send us emails! We love emails. And hearing from you. It's email@example.com
Photos of your pets or non-pet-animals are welcomed!

Today's show we talk to Anita and Gabriel form the Toronto Pig save, with Anita sharing her story with how she started the group, and its mission to provide glass walls in processing plants, and to "free all animals from the daily horrors of slaughterhouses". Anita invited me to attend a vigil that is held several times each week to bear witness to the pigs that are shipped to be slaughtered at Quality Meat Packing plant by Lakeshore and Strachan. Anita and I sit down to talk about the importance of art and how it can generate dialog as well as education/awareness about issues, particularly those around the production of meat from food animals. Their website can be found
