Offering us a candid, outsider’s look at events within Washington’s Beltway, Katty Kay brings her sharp insights in helping us understand how and why America’s national and foreign agendas are full of risk and opportunity. Join us to be engaged by her lively wit, humor, and common sense, as Kay points out where the Washington establishment is polarizing versus unifying; how our national leaders are succeeding or failing.
Known to audiences of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and BBC World News America, she grew up as the daughter of a British diplomat living throughout the Middle East. After studying French and Italian at Oxford, she began her journalism career covering the end of apartheid in South Africa. Settling in Washington in 1996, she took on the challenges of juggling her professional life with raising her four children. In her books and advocacy work she has advanced the idea of ‘Womenonics.’ Kay will laser beam through hot button issues such as presidential overreach, congressional ineffectiveness, diplomatic dustups, and global terrorism, while offering insights to tomorrow’s headlines shaping the news.
