    The American Dream

    The American Dream

    America is often described as a land of opportunity where anyone can succeed -- but is that actually the case? In this episode, Hillary is joined by “Queer Eye” star, author, and newly minted U.S. citizen Tan France; community advocate Lorella Praeli; and economist Raj Chetty to talk about what the American Dream means to them personally and whether it’s still attainable. Of course, Tan also provides expert feedback on Hillary’s presidential campaign wardrobe.

    Tan France is a fashion designer and television personality who grew up in the United Kingdom, the son of South Asian immigrants. He is best known for his role as one of the Fab Five on Netflix’s “Queer Eye.” His memoir, Naturally Tan, was published in 2019.

    Lorella Praeli was born in Peru and grew up undocumented in Connecticut. She’s now the co-president of Community Change, an advocacy group that works on behalf of low-income Americans.

    Raj Chetty is a MacArthur “Genius” grant-winning economist who has received wide acclaim for his research on equality and opportunity in America. He is the director of Harvard’s Opportunity Insights lab.

    Grief

    Grief

    Nearly all of us have experienced grief this year – whether it’s the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, or the loss of normalcy. In this episode, Hillary talks with stand-up comedian Patton Oswalt and Sybrina Fulton, advocate and mother of Trayvon Martin, about finding purpose after a terrible loss. 

    Patton Oswalt is an award-winning stand-up comedian, actor, and writer. After the tragic death of his wife Michelle McNamara, he finished the book she was working on: I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: The Search for the Golden State Killer. The book was recently turned into an HBO documentary series of the same name. His newest stand-up special, I Love Everything, is out on Netflix.

    Sybrina Fulton is an advocate and the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in 2012. Along with Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin, Sybrina co-founded The Trayvon Martin Foundation to empower families who have lost children to gun violence. Sybrina recently campaigned for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, ultimately losing by less than one percent.

    Resilience

    Resilience

    2020 has been a challenging year by any measure. In this episode, comedian Sarah Cooper ( famous for her lip-sync parodies of President Trump); Grit author Angela Duckworth; and long distance swimmer Diana Nyad share with Hillary their stories of summoning strength, motivation, and humor in the face of obstacles.

    Sarah Cooper is a standup comedian and author of How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings and 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings. Her Netflix comedy special “Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine” comes out on October 27.

    Angela Duckworth is a research psychologist and author. Her 2016 book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance was a #1 New York Times bestseller.

    Diana Nyad is a long-distance swimmer who in 2013, at age 64, succeeded on her fifth attempt to swim over one hundred miles from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage — the first person to have done so. She chronicles that swim in her book Find a Way. You can find more information on her walking and clean water initiatives here.

    Gutsy Women

    Gutsy Women

    By now it’s an all-too-familiar phenomenon: A woman who dares to defy stereotypes or step out of her “place” gets called “shrill,” “bossy,” “ambitious,” or worse. But more often than not, those are the women who get the job done. Hillary talks to feminist activist Gloria Steinem about her life and career, and sits down with pediatrician Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, who spoke out about the Flint Water Crisis. With each of these gutsy women, she asks what -- or who -- made them think they could make a difference, and how they overcame the obstacles they faced along the way. 

    Gloria Steinem is a feminist journalist and activist, best known as a pioneer of the women’s rights movement in the 1970s. She began her career in 1962 with groundbreaking pieces about contraception and about her experience going undercover as a Playboy Bunny. Later, she founded Ms. Magazine and was a major figure in the fight for the Equal Rights Amendment. Her memoir, My Life on the Road, was recently turned into a film called The Glorias starring Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander.

    Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha is a pediatrician and public health advocate who in 2014 helped expose toxic levels of lead in the water in Flint, Michigan. Her book, What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City, recounts her experience of the crisis.

    Vote!

    Vote!

    Voting is hugely important – especially right now. In this episode, Hillary is joined by musician John Legend and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams to discuss the ongoing struggle to expand voting rights, and their thoughts as America approaches a hugely consequential election. Hillary also reflects on the legacies of her heroes and friends Congressman John Lewis and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    John Legend is an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award-winning musician and the founder of Free America, a criminal justice reform advocacy organization. He recently helped launch “Free The Vote,” a fundraising campaign to pay the fines and fees preventing ex-felons in Florida from casting their ballot. He released his newest album, Bigger Love, in June. 

    Stacey Abrams was the 2018 Democratic nominee for Governor of Georgia and previously served as the minority leader in the Georgia House of Representatives. As the founder of Fair Fight and Fair Count, she has been a major force in the push to advance voting rights and ensure fair elections. Her new book is Our Time is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America.
