LISTEN: A conversation with humorist and author David Sedaris

Welcome to our new On Leadership podcast! This week we talk with David Sedaris, the author of several humor collections including Me Talk Pretty One Day and, most recently, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. In this conversation, Sedaris shares his thoughts on writing, the qualities that make for a great person, what it's like to live with his conscience, and the best advice he has both doled out and received himself.
