Bestselling author and animal scientist Temple Grandin first made a name for herself with her groundbreaking work designing more humane slaughterhouses. Grandin is autistic, and she says that her autism gives her unique insight into animal behavior. Today, she is also a leading advocate for autistics and was the subject of an Emmy-Award winning HBO film starring Clare Danes. Grandin joins us to discuss her new book “The Autistic Brain.”
