The Herle Burly

Our guest today is Sarada Peri, former senior speechwriter to President Barack Obama and Visiting Global Fellow at the Ryerson Leadership Lab. Sarada will give us ringside seats to Obama, his thinking and how the greatest orator of our time formulates arguments. We’ll also touch on the state of American politics. But what we’ll hear most strongly, is the point of view of a person who thinks that the deck is stacked against women from the very beginning, revealing itself in every aspect of life, including politics.
