Laurie Hood, Founder and President of Alaqua Animal Refuge, hosts a new venture in her fight for animal rights: the Animal Passion Podcast Series – and audio version companion to her Video Podcast YouTube channel. In her quest to advance the interests of animals, Laurie highlights the work of advocates from across the globe—the "difference makers" who have dedicated their lives to animal protection and safety. In each 30-minute episode, Laurie and her guests exchange amazing tales of triumphs and setbacks, discuss how they got started advocating for animals, and inspire viewers to get involved in their fight. The first six interviews were recorded in locations ranging from the Alaqua Podcast Studio in Florida to the remote wilderness of Oregon's South Steen Mountains, to Zurich, Switzerland. Guests include Monty Roberts (Author of The Man Who Listens to Horses), Buck Wilde and Esther Gossweiler (documentarians focusing on Alaskan sea wolves and grizzly bears), Sonya Spaziani (Founder of Mustang Wild), Marty Irby (Animal Wellness Action lobbyist in Washington, D.C.), Emma Clifford (Animal Balance Founder and Director), Odessa Gunn (Animal Wellness Center, Northern California Director) and Ellie Phipps Price (American Wild Horse Campaign President).
