In this week’s episode, host Hadeil Ali welcomes Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins for a conversation on how a little girl from South Bronx became the first Black Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, or “T” in the State Department. The pair discussed a day in the life of an arms control expert, bomb-sniffing dogs, and what inspired her to pursue all five of her academic degrees.
