Animal Rights icon Ingrid Newkirk talks about reaching 70, how it feels to see the world change after nearly 40 years leading PETA, and why she's more energized than ever to fight on behalf of the animals.

In a casual but revealing interview, Ingrid talks about how she relaxes, but confesses to being a workaholic who is still focused and motivated on her life's work.
