#38 40 Years of Animal Activism | Ingrid Newkirk

Play
Read more

In this episode, I speak with the founder and president of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk about how she founded the largest animal rights organization, some of the things she's seen during her activism, and some of the success that PETA has had inspiring top brands to adopt vegan products in their business. She is currently celebrating 40 years of vegan activism, fighting for animal rights, and the compassion for all animals. She also is the author of her new book, AnimalKind, which shows what everyone can do in their everyday lives to ensure that the animal world is protected from needless harm. Whether it’s medicine, product testing, entertainment, clothing, or food, there are now better options to all the uses animals once served in human life.

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 Newkirk Was a Deputy Sheriff Before She Founded PETA

Play
Read more

Ingrid Newkirk is the co-founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA. It may be America’s best-known animal rights organization thanks to legal sophistication, scientific seriousness, and off-the-wall publicity stunts like throwing fake blood on models wearing fur, or infiltrating a KFC chicken-supplier to publicize alleged cruelty.  They're also famous because a lot of big-name vegetarians have lent them a hand, including Alec, who narrated a documentary for PETA about animal abuse in traveling circuses, among other collaborations.  Newkirk tells the story of her transformation from the happily carnivorous daughter of an engineer in New Delhi, to deputy sheriff in Maryland, to the nation's foremost warrior against "speciesism."  Alec and Newkirk also go through all the big contemporary questions in animal rights, from hunting to animal-testing to roadside zoos, and she shares insights from her latest book about animal psychology and cognition, Animalkind.

Ingrid Newkirk Is Animal Rights’ Provocateur In Chief

Play

“Never doubt that one person can make a difference.”
INGRID NEWKIRK

A true force of nature, today's guest needs little introduction. Meet Ingrid Newkirk.

The original doyenne of animal activism, Ingrid is the legendary and infamous co-founder and president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a non-profit she personally shepherded into the largest animal rights organization in the world, currently boasting more than 6.5 million members and supporters.

Under Ingrid's stewardship, PETA quite literally put animal welfare on the map. Operating under the principle that animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way, PETA has a storied and often controversial history of exposing countless acts of gruesome and horrifying animal abuse, with it's media-savvy provocateur in chief grabbing headlines and creating significant awareness, policy changes and legal protections along the way.

Named a top businessperson of the year by Forbes, Ingrid has been profiled in countless publications -- including twice by The New Yorker -- and has appeared in seemingly every prominent media outlet including the Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King, Politically Incorrect, Crossfire, Nightline, and 60 Minutes.

Irrespective of your opinions about PETA, Ingrid is someone who has dedicated every breath to what she believes in. Combating injustice. Taking action to change what many of us simply want to deny or avoid. Looking suffering straight in the eye. And doing something about it. 

That level of purpose -- the courage to speak truth to power, tenacity to weather persistent criticism and stay the course for change -- is rare. It's impressive and laudable.

Behind it all, there is an undeniable sincerity to Ingrid. A fascinating, complex, and charismatic character, she’s also deeply sensitive. Quite self-aware. And surprisingly funny. Today Ingrid shares her story.

Note: This conversation was recorded pre-pandemic on February 18, 2020. Therefore there is no coronavirus discussion. However, I think Ingrid's message is profoundly of the moment given the undeniable role animal agriculture plays in fomenting disease.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the audio version streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

In this moment of forced repose, my hope is that we reflect on humanity's misguided entitlement to dominion over all things. Our intelligence is not the gauge of the animal kingdom. And our relationship with the living beings with whom we share this imperiled planet is broken.

Ingrid is here to recalibrate that relationship.

Peace + Plants,

Rich

It’s been 2 years since The ChickPeeps’ first interview with Ingrid Newkirk and in that time fur has become passé, animal rights has gone mainstream and Ingrid has written a new book! So this week Ingrid rejoins Tylor and Evy to catch us up on PETA’s updated approach to ending animal oppression, tell stories of animal communication from her new book, and share creative ways we can continue to change the world for animals during lockdown. Also on this episode...

  • ‘Fur is done and dusted’ - Ingrid explains why PETA have retired the ‘I’d rather go naked than wear fur’ campaign.
  • Why isn’t Canada Goose getting the memo that fur is uncool?
  • Ingrid shares her opinions on COVID-19: ‘If everybody was vegan we wouldn’t have had any pandemic, and we won’t have any in the future.’
  • Is it insensitive for vegans to be talking about the source of the coronavirus?
  • We talk about speciesism and the distinction between liking and respecting animals.
  • ‘We have to be against speciesism as much as we’re against any of the other hideous ‘ism’s.’
  • Tylor airs his gripe with the phrase ‘voice for the voiceless’ and asks Ingrid to weigh in on whether or not this is a statement of human supremacy.
  • Ingrid talks about socially conscious sheltering and why she believes the no-kill movement isn’t realistic.
  • Can you be an animal abolitionist and support animal welfare causes?
  • Ingrid shares about the inspiration behind her new book and gives some anecdotes about animals being faithful lovers and amazing parents!
  • How can we continue to do activism in self-isolation?

Ingrid Newkirk: One woman and ‘Animalkind’; the tale of PETA’s rabbits

Play
Read more
Ingrid Newkirk is an animal rights activist, author, and the president of PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals – and after 40 years of activism, her passion remains infectiously captivating. Ingrid was born in Britain, raised in India, and spent much of her life in America. As a citizen of the world – in fact, her location globally has been dictated by the Vietnam War as much as veganism – Ingrid has been witness to many social and cultural uses and misuses of the animal kingdom. Subsequently, she believes that we should not draw a distinction between humans and animals. Known for its radical approach to activism, Ingrid says the organisation’s campaigns are succeeding, and today they are relying less on gimmicks, as people are becoming increasingly sympathetic to animal welfare and climate change issues. In this inspirational conversation, Ingrid explores some of the biggest feats achieved by PETA , such as fighting the mistreatment of macaque monkeys in Silver Spring, Maryland, triggering an amendment to the US Animal Welfare Act – and you’ll hear why she decided not to pursue a career as a ballet dancer, why she now eats at Kentucky Fried Chicken, and how she enjoys nothing more than watching Formula One!
