Taylor Radig worked at Quanah Cattle Co. in Kersey, Colorado, and covertly filmed calves, some so young they still had umbilical cords attached, being kicked, thrown, and slammed onto trucks. Video footage was released by the group on November 13th, and on November 15th criminal charges were filed against three men shown abusing the animals.

I’ve devoured TED talks for years, both because I find them individually fascinating and because, as a speaker, I’m constantly trying to improve my communication and refine my own style. What’s remarkable to me about TED is that experts present their work in brilliantly non-expert ways (and by that I mean “ways that everyone else outside their field can understand”). It’s exactly what I aspire to do with my journalism. So I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been accepted as a TED Fellow for 2014.
That means I’ll get to meet with an inspiring list of artists, journalists, scientists, and thinkers from around the world, and also the opportunity to share my own work. I can’t wait.
(In the meantime, here’s one of my favorite TED talks.)
Inside is a new batch of “domestic terrorist” aprons. Folks keep requesting these, so I did another print run in time for the holidays. They’re $15. I just had to migrate to a new server because of increased traffic (good!) which means more expenses (bad!) so your purchase or donation is really appreciated. Thanks everyone!
You can buy them at the store or buy clicking below.
