BONUS EPISODE: Ambassador Wendy Sherman and the Decline of American Moral Authority

This week, Daniella and Ed speak with Ambassador Wendy Sherman about recent diplomatic developments in North Korea and Iran as well as her new book, Not For The Faint of Heart: Lessons in Courage, Power, and Persistence.

As the U.N. General Assembly kicks off this week, Daniella and Ed sat down with Ambassador Wendy Sherman—the former under secretary of state for political affairs and the first woman to hold that post—to reflect on the most recent diplomatic goings-on in North Korea and Iran and how this administration has hamstrung American leadership abroad. As the former lead negotiator for the Iran nuclear deal, Ambassador Sherman discusses her new book, Not For The Faint of Heart: Lessons in Courage, Power, and Persistence, and weighs in on how she learned to embrace power as a woman in Washington.
