SXSW Conversation: Christiane Amanpour & Kara Swisher

Amanpour has had a three-plus decade career as an international war correspondent, while Swisher is an acclaimed journalist known for asking pointed questions to the tech world’s biggest figures. Sex & Love Around the World was the name Amanpour's new CNN show in 2018, and in the interview, Amanpour explained that she was shifting from her focus to reporting on "slice of life" issues. Since the #MeToo movement was an especially timely topic (the #MeToo hashtag having been widely publicized since October 2017), Swisher also asked Amanpour questions about her experience with harassment issues in the workplace.
