Glenn Greenwald and Sentient Media to Create Series on Animal Rights

greenwald lingel series

Every week, Glenn and Grant will sit down together in Rio de Janeiro to unpack the biggest issues in animal rights—factory farming, food politics, animal advocacy, veganism, and much more. We can’t wait to hear what they have to say for the future of the movement.

We believe animals need protectors. The food system needs to change, and everyone needs to hear about it.

Filming will start in January with the first episode set to air the first week of March. We can’t wait! And we know you can’t either. Read more about the hosts of Sentient Media’s first video series.
