Leaning In / Pilot Vets Say Goodbye

Monday, December 10, 2018

About two weeks ago Michelle Obama stunned people with a blunt takedown of the "lean in" mantra. She said the idea that women can “have it all” is a lie. Cathy will talk about gender and career success and the controversy behind those remarks.  Also, longtime Pilot writers Bill Bartel, Robert McCabe and Roger Chesley are leaving the paper. We will talk about their work. We hope you can call us during this discussion at 1-800-940-2240 or 757-440-2665.

Today's Guests

Bill Bartel - The Virginian-Pilot
Robert McCabe - The Virginian-Pilot
