Uber’s Head of Federal Affairs, Danielle Burr, turned the media tables on Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer to take the audience behind the scenes on their reporting for their new book, The Hill to Die On: The Battle for Congress and the Future of Trump’s America.
Burr asked about how The Hill to Die On authors were able to show Capitol Hill from the inside out. Sherman and Palmer described how they reported, including listening to member conference calls. They profiled legislative leaders — and their staffs — through these secret conversations, describing the power struggles that fuel Congressional politics.
Guests included: Greta Van Susteren and John Coale, Microsoft VP Fred Humphries, Uber’s Susan Hendrick, The Washington Post’s Kris Coratti, Bloomberg’s Craig Gordon, NRCC Executive Director Parker Poling, Variety’s Ted Johnson, VICE’s Shawna Thomas, Speaker Pelosi’s Chief of Staff Robert Edmonson, Rep. Will Herd’s COS John Byers, Rep. Dan Kildee’s COS Mitchell Rivard, and Minority Leader McCarthy’s Policy Chief, Will Dunham.
