Special Guest - Dr. Jennifer Korn, Florida Panther Biologist with Johnson Engineering, an Adjunct Professor with South Florida State College. Jennifer appears in the award-winning documentary PATH OF THE PANTHER. She joins Talkin' Pets April 22, 2023 at 5pm ET


WHAT: PATH OF THE PANTHER -   A Grizzly Creek, Wild Path, Appian Way, and National Geographic Production,  will be aired on Nat Geo April 22 (Earth Day) at 10:50pm. It will also air in April on Disney+

AVAILABLE FOR ZOOM OR PHONE INTERVIEWS: Director Eric Bendick, National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Carlton Ward Jr., Impact Producer Tori Linder  


ABOUT: Drawn in by the haunting specter of the Florida panther, National Geographic Explorer and photographer Carlton Ward Jr. and a coalition of biologists, ranchers, conservationists and Indigenous peoples find themselves on the front lines of an accelerating battle between forces of renewal and destruction that have pushed the Everglades to the brink of ecological collapse. This odyssey of heartbreak and hope is the culmination of more than five years of field research, 500,000 still images, and over 800 hours of ultra-high definition camera trap footage. Against all odds, wild panthers have been stunningly captured in their native ecosystem, as they’ve never been filmed before.

The film is the cornerstone of the “Path of the Panther” project, supported by the National Geographic Society and many other partners that inspired the passage of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Act — the first legislation of its kind and a blueprint for addressing habitat fragmentation and species extinction across the globe. The project continues to grow today, and the world stands at a crossroads with the Florida panther guiding the way.

Special Guests - Trial coverage is all the rage, but this trial coverage is like no other. It’s not a murder by a jealous lover. It’s a Hollywood actress on trial for grabbing a chicken. Before you laugh or roll your eyes, listen on Talkin' Pets 4/15/23 at 5pm ET

Jackson Madnick, Founder of Pearls Premium grass seed will join Talkin' Pets to discuss and give away his pet and environment friendly deep rooted grass seed 4/15/23 at 630pm ET

Our Story

My mother, Pearl, sparked my life-long commitment to protect our Planet Earth. Among all of Earth’s natural beauties, water has always enchanted me the most. Betsy and I live with our daughter, Pearl, on a beautiful pond. Looking out our living room window, I witnessed the environmental damage up close. As I investigated the problem on our little pond, it became clear that lawns (and lawn care) were a primary culprit. The deeper I dug, the more compelling case for change became. So, I set out on an eight year journey to save our pond and in the process found a solution to save our waters and save you money, too!

We Americans love our lawns but we are addicted to high maintenance lawn care. Protecting our waters depends critically on changing how we care for our lawns. With input from independent grass seed scientists, I tested thousands of seed mixes to create a truly low maintenance, patent-pending solution. Once established, Pearl’s Premium rarely, or never, needs watering; grows very slowly and thrives without chemicals. The secret: roots that grow very deep, tapping into naturally-occurring moisture and nutrients to produce a healthy, barefoot soft lawn.

I pledge that Pearl’s Premium will transform your lawn – as it has thousands of lawns. I encourage you to take the Pearl’s Premium pledge to save time, money, water and our Earth!

Jackson Madnick


Our Mission and Vision Statement

Mission Statement

Pearl’s Premium grass is dedicated to empowering people around the globe to save water, lower their carbon footprint, eliminate the use of toxic lawn chemicals and live sustainably for the good of people, pets and the planet.

Vision Statement

We are deeply committed to the work of reversing climate change, saving water, restoring eco-systems, and re-establishing health to the land, to biodiversity, to ourselves and to the world. We will honor and cherish the earth’s finite resources by educating the public about soil carbon sequestration, water savings, and to one of the most important ways they can help – by the simple act of planting an extraordinary grass that will pull carbon out of the atmosphere and store it in the soil like no other lawn grass. Pearl’s Premium is deeply rooted in the idea and proven science that we can move carbon from the air back into the soil for the health of the planet and every creature on it.

We will continue to educate the public to the dangers of toxic lawn chemicals by way of educational workshops, and by offering alternative solutions. We will advise and partner with individuals, municipalities, universities, cemeteries, golf courses and others around the world to establish safe, sustainable lawns. For inner cities, we will recommend green roofs to help lessen urban heat island effect, improve storm water management, to absorb carbon and release oxygen, and to increase energy efficiency in buildings.

Pearl’s Premium is the most earth-friendly lawn. To date, no other lawn performs like Pearl’s Premium, sequestering huge amounts of carbon, using 75% less water, 75% less mowing and no chemicals to stay green year round. We are the only lawn to receive LEED credits from the US Green Building Council.

We will continue to look for eco-friendly ways to make improvements to our seed mixes for an even better, sustainable lawn that will produce substantial benefits for all living things. As we face unprecedented environmental challenges in the 21st Century, it is crucial that our lawns become a part of the solution for a better climate and a better future.

Pearl’s Premium is dedicated to finding solutions that will address climate change, extreme weather, health, and water issues around the world.

The Secret is in The Roots

The secret is in the roots! Pearl's Premium patent-pending seed mixtures grow very deep roots after one year. As a result, a properly installed and maintained Pearl’s Premium lawn:

  • taps into naturally-occurring moisture to minimize watering and better resist drought
  • taps into naturally-occurring nutrients to minimize need for chemical treatments
  • grows very slowly above ground to minimize mowing
  • grows very slowly above ground to minimize nutrient requirements

Jackson Madnick, founder and seed developer, researched grass seed and lawn care for over 10 years to find the best seed varieties and the ideal percentage blends of these varieties to achieve break-through, low maintenance lawn care.

The result is Pearl’s Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed, which is available in three blends:

  • Sunny Mixture – for areas in Full Sun to 50% Sun
  • Shady Mixture – for areas in Full Shade to 50% Sun
  • Sun/Shade Mixture

Movie Review written by Jon Patch with 3.5 out of 4 Paws

The Rise of Animal Rights Trial Coverage

Los Angeles, California, April 10, 2023 — UnchainedTV, the world’s only 100% vegan-focused, animal rights streaming TV news network, is venturing into live trial coverage with expert panels, to bring the public crucial news they are not getting on mainstream television. And people are watching!

UnchainedTV’s founder, Jane Velez-Mitchell, is using the skills she honed for years as an anchor on Court TV and on HLN, aka CNN Headline News, to host UnchainedTV trial coverage. UnchainedTV is telling viewers about cases involving animals trapped in the industrialized factory farming system and the people trying to save them.

UnchainedTV recently ran daily, hours-long coverage of the trial of former Baywatch actress Alexandra Paul and her co-defendant Alicia Santurio. They were each facing up to six months in jail for taking two chickens off of a slaughter truck in rural California. They called it a rescue. The prosecutors called it theft.

At first glance, a misdemeanor case involving two chickens may not seem newsworthy. But it turns out that so many crucial legal and health issues were raised in this trial that UnchainedTV’s fascinating coverage drew 55,423 viewers across all platforms. Those platforms include the UnchainedTV streaming network itself, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

Viewers learned that the two chickens were extremely ill. A veterinarian testified for the defense that one of the chickens later died and his necropsy revealed he had Enterococcus faecium. Trial watchers were told that this is a drug-resistant bacterial infection that can also be life-threatening to humans.

The defense took an intriguing legal approach arguing that, because the chickens were sick, they had no value to the company and were, indeed, a liability. Alexandra Paul’s defense attorney said, since nothing of value was taken from the company, “… you must acquit.”

That attorney, Wayne Hsiung, is the increasingly prominent activist who co-founded Direct Action Everywhere, the organization promoting the concept of “open rescue.”  Hsiung himself was recently acquitted, along with a co-defendant, by a Utah jury of taking two sick piglets from a Utah factory farm. In the California trial, Alexandra Paul took the stand and explained to the jurors that she allowed herself to be videotaped while taking the chickens and intentionally showed her face, ensuring the act would be caught on tape, all in order to make the point that there is no shame in rescuing a suffering animal. Rather, she asserted, it was her moral obligation to do something given the lack of action by the government to protect factory farmed animals.

The jurors seemed to agree as they found both women not guilty. UnchainedTV was the only news outlet going live as the verdict came down, sparking cheers and tears among the animal activists outside court and some of the network’s expert panelists.

Unlike most mainstream media platforms, which purport to be objective and neutral while promoting specific agendas, UnchainedTV is transparent about its belief that animals are not mere property like cans or cars, as prosecutors in these cases have asserted, but rather, sentient beings deserving of protection and legal standing in court.

“Given that corporations now have a degree of personhood in the courts, animals certainly should,” observes Velez-Mitchell.

Among those on camera discussing the case, Nathan Semmel, a former Manhattan Assistant District Attorney; Bonnie Klapper, a famed former Assistant U.S. Attorney in both the Central District of California and the Eastern District of NY; Marina Bolotnikova, staff editor for Vox’s Future Perfect section who also wrote a brilliant piece on the trial; Dotsie Bausch, an Olympic medalist and Switch4Good founder; Donny Moss, a documentary filmmaker and founder of Their Turn; Ellen Dent, president of Animal Alliance Network; Mick Davoudian, an animal rights philanthropist; and others. Volunteers served as live reporters outside the courthouse, adding immediacy and excitement to the coverage.

Says Velez-Mitchell, “At UnchainedTV we are filling the gap and doing an end-run around the mainstream media blackout on these vital issues.” She adds, “Industrialized animal agriculture needs to be more thoroughly scrutinized by journalists. It impacts food safety, climate change, drought, pollution, human health, habitat destruction, wildlife extinction and more. We give this industry a pass at our own peril.” Velez-Mitchell adds that she invites anyone from the industry on at any time to comment, noting, “We would love to dialogue.”
