I enjoy this podcast very much and hope there are more episodes in the works. Loved the interview with Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Both Madam Speaker and Secretary Clinton are highly intelligent individuals, and our democracy needs more women like them.

The week after the attack on the Capitol, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joins Hillary for a candid, no-holds-barred conversation.
