Episode 81: Elmira Bayrasli

Elmira Bayrasli is the author of the new book From the Other Side of the World: Extraordinary Entrepreneurs, Unlikely Places. She is also the co founder of Foreign Policy Interrupted, which seeks to amplify the voice of female foreign policy experts and she’s a former assistant to Madeleine Albright.

We kick off discussing the new book, which transitions nicely to a conversation about her experience growing up the child of Turkish immigrants, and how she got her start working in foreign policy. This is a fun, lively episode.  Enjoy.
