Skimm'd from the Couch: Ambassador Samantha Power

Jan 8, 2020

Before serving as US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power was a scholar, activist, and journalist. Tune in to hear how she built her career around her belief system. And how she managed up when those beliefs were challenged.  

In this episode, Ambassador Power tells us what she learned from her parents’ failed marriage (9:41), how to disagree with your boss (24:53), and shares her journey with fertility while working nonstop in the White House (30:03). 

Her new memoir, The Education of an Idealist, is available now.
