Herd Around The Barn: The Podcast - Sanctuary Thoughts & Musings Hosted By Kathy Stevens

Welcome to Herd Around The Barn, our founder Kathy Steven’s weekly podcast examining farmed animals, our relationships with them, and the impact of that relationship on all of us — the animals, humans, and the planet we share. Tune in wherever you get your podcasts, for stories of the animals we know and love, and interviews with ‘regular’ people, Sanctuary folks and international leaders in animal rights, human health and climate science — all united in our vision of a world free from suffering.
Kathy’s passion, fortitude, dedication, and voracious “I LOVE YOU, COW” shouts have guided the Sanctuary all through 20 years of rescue, education, and love. Kathy has been a beacon of hope in an ever-changing landscape: whether she’s riding in the back of a hay truck, teaching about the link between animal agriculture and our rapidly warming planet, or sneaking giant steer Tucker a banana (or three), she is the heart of our organization. She is the author of multiple books and is a sought-after speaker on vegan issues. Kathy is the 2020 recipient of Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries’ Carole Noon award, and was named Best Environmental Advocate 2021 by The Chronogram.
