Comedian-activist Margaret Cho, a whip-smart provocateur and woman of many talents and wearer of many hats–from a “Talking Animals”-centric standpoint, she’s a longtime animal lover, big into animal rescue, passionate about animal rights, and her writings include a piece in the canine literary anthology, “Dog Is My Co-Pilot”–discusses the current status of the dogs spotlighted in her “Co-Pilot” piece (and a new one added to the family), the healing powers of animals, the monastery for dogs in Tibet she visited, the connections between animal rights and the other movements or causes that are important to her, her new book “I Have Chosen To Stay And Fight,” her work on behalf of the West Memphis 3 (she published Damien Echols’ memoir, “Almost Home”), and more.
