Nasty Women Barbara Boxer, Valerie Plame, and Kelli Stanley are Shattering Glass

We’ve got such a special episode lined up today.  In the new book Shattering Glass, Kelli Stanley of Nasty Woman Press brought together essays from so many remarkable women, and she’s brought two of them here with her today. From 1993-2017, Barbara Boxer represented California in the United States Senate, where she was a hero for women’s rights. Valerie Plame served as an undercover agent in the CIA protecting our national interests until she was outed by senior members of the Bush Administration. All three of these remarkable women joined me for a very spirited discussion.
