First up, we speak with Gamze Erkök Neer, Vice President of The Animal Protection Society of Turkey. In this program, Gamze details the treatment of animals Turkey, and what advocates are doing to address these concerns. She also describes the HAYKOD Sanctuary, a rehabilitation and no-kill shelter that currently houses 600 animals. She then shares some stories about the animals who have been brought to HAYKOD, and how they’ve persevered. Lastly, Gamze reflects on the challenges currently facing the shelter, and what she believes should be done to improve the plight of Turkish animals.

Next, we bid a fond farewell to Lamia Gibson, our wonderful tech and sometimes co-host, who is off to pursue a shiatsu practice. During this segment, we reminisce over her tenure with the show, and listen to a clip from one of her favourite interviews.
