MTV Founders editor Julie Zeilinger speaks with WNYC Editor of Special Projects and LA Times critic-at-large Rebecca Carroll about her essay about Michelle Obama's impact on her as well as the position of First Lady  — as well as her refusal to conform to gendered and racialized stereotypes, her unique feminist identity, and what her future may hold.
