Amanda Litman wants ladies in office
Episode 1 // August 16, 2017
Hello, ladies! We’re here! For our first episode, Hillary Clinton’s former email director Amanda Litman is on the line. Amanda didn’t love the results of the last election, so she cofounded Run for Something, a new political action committee to help progressive millennials run for local office. She tells us about winning elections, maximizing self-care and scoring book deals on Twitter. PS: This October, buy her first book, Run for Something: A Real-Talk Guide to Fixing the System Yourself.
