General Motors no longer crash tests on animals because of Ingrid Newkirk. Spay and neuter clinics came into existence because of Ingrid Newkirk. There is more compassion, empathy, and far less suffering in the world because one woman decided to use her human privilege and speak up. Ingrid—the co-founder and president of PETA—started a revolution. Her rallying cry calls for kindness for all sentient beings, and her message has sprung millions into action. In this episode, Ingrid enlightens us with the extraordinary stories of animals, educates us on the horrendous ways humans exploit other beings, and ultimately gives us hope for a kinder future. Drop any preconceived notions you may have about PETA. Ingrid doesn’t fear monger, bully, or harass. She tells the information as it is, and her message of kindness will win your loyalty to the compassionate cause. 

What we discuss in this episode:


- The power of kindness when extended to all animals (humans included)

- Ingrid’s latest book, AnimalKind

- The ethics of domesticated horses and dogs

- Inefficiency and cruelty of animal testing

- How Ingrid’s vegan journey began with a birthday lobster dinner
