Show Notes

Join members of Bailing Out Benji’s Illinois Team as they detail exactly how they were able to get a statewide pet store puppy mill ban passed through their state legislature. 
Their fight is not over as they await the governor’s signature, but the collaboration, testimony, protests, and hard work that got them this far are surely going to take their bill through the finish line. 
Citizen advocacy is powerful when everyone’s hearts are in it for the dogs! 

Americans are used to being on the lookout for a scam, but authorities are warning of a new kind of fraud. Puppy Kingpin shines a spotlight on Jolyn Noethe, a secretive businesswoman from Iowa who is accused of laundering puppies much like drug money. Investigative reporter Alex Schuman exposes the scheme and an underground part of the industry bringing us the pets we love.

From Neon Hum Media and Sony Music Entertainment. Smoke Screen: Puppy Kingpin is available June 16th.
