Resilience (with Sarah Cooper, Diana Nyad, and Angela Duckworth)

2020 has been a challenging year by any measure. In this episode, comedian Sarah Cooper ( famous for her lip-sync parodies of President Trump); Grit author Angela Duckworth; and long distance swimmer Diana Nyad share with Hillary their stories of summoning strength, motivation, and humor in the face of obstacles. Sarah Cooper is a standup comedian and author of How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings and 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings. Her Netflix comedy special “Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine” comes out on October 27. Angela Duckworth is a research psychologist and author. Her 2016 book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance was a #1 New York Times bestseller. Diana Nyad is a long-distance swimmer who in 2013, at age 64, succeeded on her fifth attempt to swim over one hundred miles from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage — the first person to have done so. She chronicles that swim in her book Find a Way. You can find more information on her walking and clean water initiatives here. A full transcript is here.
