Episode notes

Diyora Shadijanova (https://twitter.com/thediyora) speaks with the co-founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) - Ingrid Newkirk https://twitter.com/IngridNewkirk.

Ingrid has been an activist for over 50 years and in that time has written over 20 books on animals, including her latest release, Animalkind.

Published in 2020, Animalkind acts as a resource that teaches us about the wonders of the animal kingdom. It also delves into the ways technology has evolved to find alternatives to animal products, highlighting animal cruelty in the food, clothing and entertainment industries.

Ingrid discusses why she created PETA, what hopes she has for the next generation and how she still manages to include activism with her passion for Formula 1 Racing.
