Talk of the Hill with Bill Press: Secretary Madeleine Albright
Award-winning journalist, political insider and Capitol Hill resident Bill Press sits down (virtually) for a one-on-one, thought-provoking conversation with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. In April 2020, Dr. Albright released her new book “Hell and Other Destinations: A 21st Century Memoir.”
Dr. Albright is a professor, author, diplomat and businesswoman who served as the 64th Secretary of State of the United States.

From 1993 to 1997, Dr. Albright served as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations and was a member of the President’s Cabinet. She is a Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. Dr. Albright is Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm, and Chair of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm focused on emerging markets. She also chairs the National Democratic Institute, serves as the president of the Truman Scholarship Foundation and is a member of the U.S. Defense Department’s Defense Policy Board.
