Now that the 2020 campaign is over, Anna speaks with Parker Poling, the executive director of the National Republican Congressional Committee, which made substantial gains this year. Parker's job is a big responsibility — working with hundreds of campaigns, candidates, members of congress, donors and campaign staffers as the clock ticks down to election day. But Parker herself seems to take it all in stride. She talks about the wisdom she's learned over the years that allows her to do that — and the importance of being kind to yourself along the way.

What I learned by listening: J.Crew CEO Jan Singer
This year, J.Crew is closing all of its stores and offices on Election Day in an effort to encourage its workers to vote. It’s not a move you’d expect from a major corporation. But Jan Singer isn’t your typical CEO. In fact, she didn't even want to be a CEO when she started out — and her (mostly male) superiors were quick to say she couldn't be a CEO unless she changed who she was. She didn't. And now leads one of the most iconic fashion retailers in America. We talked about her journey as a leader, what she's learned from listening, and how the pandemic is shaping J.Crew's outlook.

Agility is the new superpower: Nina Garcia
Our guest today: Nina Garcia, who in addition to being the editor-in-chief of ELLE Magazine, serves as a judge on “Project Runway.”Her journey to fashion-icon status was an unlikely one: She was an immigrant who came to America to get an education, fell in love with the fashion world, and worked her way to the top after starting out at the very bottom."I didn’t know anybody here. I didn’t really have any contacts. I had no connections," Garcia tells Anna Palmer. "It was just a big, glamorous industry, and I didn’t really see myself — there were no other Latinas doing it."Throughout her career, Garcia has shown an ability to adapt to new situations — whether that’s taking a chance on a new TV show that would later become a smash-hit, working in the publishing industry at a time of massive upheaval, or staying on top of a fashion world that is built upon the idea of constant change.Anna talks to Nina Garcia about all of that and more on today's episode of "Women Rule."POLITICO's "Women Rule" podcast is produced by Zack Stanton. Irene Noguchi is the executive producer of POLITICO Audio.

Padma Lakshmi on how food is a gateway to empathy
Anna's joined by Padma Lakshmi, the author, model and activist who hosts “Top Chef” on Bravo and whose new show, “Taste the Nation,” is now out on Hulu. Padma said she decided to do the show after thinking about what a central role food plays in American culture and everyday life — and how the people behind the food we love are so rarely given the chance to tell their own stories. Padma’s work away from the culinary world has put her on the forefront of a host of issues: civil liberties, immigrant rights, and raising awareness for endometriosis — a medical condition that millions of American women have, and which has struggled to receive the funding and attention it deserves because of societal assumptions about women and health. All that and more on the newest episode of "Women Rule." "Women Rule" is hosted by Anna Palmer and produced by Zack Stanton. Irene Noguchi is the executive producer of POLITICO Audio.
