A ‘Humbled’ Carol Fulp Explains Her Presidential Appointment To The UN

A ‘Humbled’ Carol Fulp Explains Her Presidential Appointment To The UN
Carol FulpBy anyone’s estimation: Carol Fulp is a heavy hitter. But for all her accomplishments – Carol is extraordinarily unassuming, modest and humble. For instance: As a long time community and political activist, during big campaigns, she’s had the opportunity to meet countless high-profile candidates. During the 2008 presidential campaign, she encountered then-Senator Barack Obama on a number of occasions. Yet – taking nothing for granted – each time she met him she would say, “Hi, I’m Carol Fulp from Boston.” To which he would say, “I KNOW who you are.” That’s why last September it was no surprise to learn that President Obama nominated her as part of a group of four U.S. delegates to the United Nations. After being confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Carol took a temporary leave from her current job as a senior vice president at John Hancock and assumed her administrative post, choosing to focus on issues that further the economic advancement of women in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
