For her birthday, Ingrid Newkirk is...what else? Saving animals. The president and co-founder of PETA talks about PETA's efforts globally to save as many animals as it can, from India and Asia, to Romania in Europe, to Petra in the Middle East, and back to Norfolk, Va., PETA headquarters. Newkirk tells Emil Guillermo about how efforts in India were impacted by Covid. She talks about why she does what she does, and shares with listeners her favorite obsession, books, and birthday meal.
