My forthcoming book, Animal Dharma, explores what it means to care deeply about animals and discovers how we can live peacefully with ourselves and others by proposing four key values: truth, compassion, nonviolence and interbeing–the interrelatedness of all.

This is the second in a series of podcasts in which I read out brief extracts from Animal Dharma. It is called “Chicken Slaughterhouse.” I recall from my time as a student in England in the 1970s when I worked one summer in a chicken slaughterhouse. Who knew what impact this experience would have?
