Episode 19: White House Correspondents’ Garden Brunch 2017
The 2017 Annual White House Correspondents’ Garden Brunch honored two pillars of American democracy: military veterans and the press.
I had the honor of speaking to guests about these topics as dedicated journalists, entrepreneurs, elected officials, and many more gathered at the beautiful home of Connie Milstein, co-founder of Dog Tag Bakery.
I spoke with Sen. Mark Warner and Reps. Debbie Dingell and Darrell Issa, as well as esteemed journalists such as April Ryan, Jonathan Capehart, Stephanie Ruhle and Brian Stelter. Each had very strong opinions on supporting our veterans and their families, as well protecting a free press. I also spoke with award recipients Sedrick Banks, entrepreneur and graduate of the Dog Tag Bakery fellow program, and Joe Goldman, President of the Democracy Fund.
It was an extraordinary event in an unprecedented year for White House correspondents and those who cover all things Washington!
Although I am graduating from St. Andrews this year, I will continue my podcast while studying at NYU.
