On this show we continue our examination of the treatment of lions in Africa. Pippa Hankinson, Producer of the film, Blood Lions, joins Peter for an extended discussion covering the various ways lions are bred, exploited, and ultimately killed for sport. Listen to learn the tragic details and what you can do to help end the practice.
Then we lighten things up by chatting about the most popular dog names of the year. Are there any surprises?
The show wraps up with Steven DePalma, who speaks with Lori about Veteran Barn Door Project. Steven’s organization helps veterans with PTSD, anxiety and depression, by teaching them horsemanship skills. The horses enjoy the interaction and connection with the vets, and Steven explains how the process of working with the horses has healing powers. It’s a very heartwarming story.
