Peter sits down to interview University of Alberta law professor Jessica Eisen in this episode, discussing her fascinating work on how some countries include animal protection in their constitutions.

Plus, Peter and Camille bring you the latest animal news, including what the US mid-term elections brought for animals—a ban on greyhound racing in Florida, and stronger farmed animal protection regulations in California! They also discuss the Ontario SPCA’s move to pull out of enforcing laws pertaining to horses and farmed animals, and a groundbreaking rodeo cruelty prosecution in New Zealand by animal law organization NZALA.

This episode’s hero is the Eric S. Margolis Family Foundation for investing $1 million to fund alternatives to animal testing, and the zero is Edmonton’s animal services agency, which is now facing charges over the deaths of three cats.
