Paging Authors Podcast: Madeleine Kunin

Paging Authors with Dana Barrett is a weekly podcast in which our lovely and talented Ms. Barrett sits down with your favorite bestselling authors as well as up and coming literary stars.

Dana sat down with Governor Madeleine Kunin following her talk at the recent Green Festival in Washington DC to talk about her latest book.  Pearls, Politics, and Power is a call to action for new political engagement and leadership from the women of America. Informed by conversations with elected female leaders from all levels, Kunin, former three-term Vermont Governor and Ambassador to Switzerland, asks: What difference do women make? What is the worst part of politics, and what is the best part? What inspired these women to run, and how did they prepare themselves for public life? How did they raise money, protect their families’ privacy, deal with criticism and attack ads, and work with the “good old boys”?  Dana talks to the author about these issues as well as her thoughts on the recent landmark election.



  1. Great interview. I’m glad to hear it. I really admire Madeline’s effort to encourage women to be involved in politics now.
