Engaging, heartwarming, so informative

Kathy is a masterful storyteller with a wide open, generous heart that shines through in every episode. She takes listeners through the world of farm animals, rescue and the people who do all different aspects of this difficult, sometimes heartbreaking but so often rewarding work. If you love animals, you will find yourself listening to every episode.

Love Spoken on the Airwaves

The mantra of Catskill Animal Sanctuary is "Love Spoken Here" and "Lead with Love," and that is precisely what Kathy Stevens does in this podcast. She tackles some of the biggest topics of animal rights, environmental activism, and vegan living and presents it in a way that even the biggest skeptic would appreciate. Her storytelling abilities are extraordinary in her book, and they continue into this podcast. It's clear how much LOVE truly exists in Kathy's world. Well done, team.

Wonderful Podcast

Listening to this podcast is like getting my weekly dose of compassion and kindness. I love hearing Kathy’s stories from the farm. I also love hearing from leaders from the movement like Joanne MacArthur and Leah Garces.

This podcast is well done and very enjoyable!
