Animal Protection Line


Introducing AnimalChat

We’re new at this. Podcasting is not what we normally do but we do it now.

We have monopolized an unused office at our head office to record AnimalChat, and we’ve lined it with cardboard to help eliminate the hollow sound that empty offices often have. As we get into the groove a bit, we’ll look to make the office into a more permanent sound studio.

We’re using our video camera as a recording device, along with our two microphones. Eventually we may invest in equipment specific for the podcast. For now though, our existing equipment is working great.

Office dog Bochy has volunteered to be a guest on the show whenever we need him, but the reality is, he’s more interested in a warm chair than sharing his opinion.

Office dog Bochy has never met a warm chair he didn't like
Terra Johnston is our Executive Director and had the honour of being our first ever guest on AnimalChat
In case there was any doubt Bochy is a poser, he set the record straight.
