PETA has released new video showing the horrible conditions monkeys must endure at the multi-million dollar primate facilities at the University of Washington's Washington Primate Research Center. After spending most of her career researching monkeys Dr. Lisa Jones-Engel found she couldn't in good conscience continue her work at the center. Now she works at PETA and advocates the shutting down of the center and the six other primate research centers in the nation. She talks of her ethical journey and the revelations that made her fight for the animals she used to research. She joins Emil Guillermo on the PETA Podcast.
