'Daily Show' Co-Creator Lizz Winstead: Vagical Power

"Lizz Winstead is a sharp-witted truth-teller"—that was Ms. magazine's judgment of political satirist Lizz Winstead. 

From creating some of the most groundbreaking media to leading a reproductive rights organization, Winstead has succeeded in changing the media landscape, as well as fearlessly tackling serious political issues, including leading an abortion activist organization. Her record of accomplishments led Entertainment Weekly to name her one of its 100 Most Creative People. 

Join us for a conversation with this sharp-witted truth-teller—and probably a bit of political satire to put a smile on your face.
