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? Links Buy Ingrid’s new book, Animalkind. Check out PETA’s work!
