Our Hen House, a nonprofit animal rights organization, has launched a new podcast completely dedicated to the legal system and its relationship to animals.

Hosted by self-proclaimed “passionate (and nosy) animal rights law professor and activist” Mariann Sullivan, The Animal Law Podcast has released its first episode this week.

“For such a long time, I’ve wanted to interview the lawyers who are doing cutting edge work for animals and get them to reveal their secrets,” wrote Sullivan in a blog post introducing the podcast. “I’ve been thirsty for the details, not only about the animals these lawyers are trying to help, but I want to know the legal ins-and-outs, too. This is the stuff that law is made of. The stuff that actually changes the way society works. This is what I love.”

Set up as a conversational show, The Animal Law Podcast is aimed at lawyers, law students or anyone “who’s interested in how the law works (or doesn’t work) when it comes to animals.”

The podcast will feature an interview with an animal law attorney every month. For the first one-hour episode, the featured guest was Steven Wise, President of the Nonhuman Rights Project. On the heels of the Manhattan Supreme Court decision on the organization’s efforts to free two chimpanzees being used for research at the State University in Stony Brook, Wise spoke about animal rights and previous legal cases and decisions involving animals in captivity.

The podcast can be heard on the Our Hen House website or on iTunes where listeners can subscribe to get notified of new episodes.
