Episode 9: Mia Farrow

Mia Farrow is on the podcast this week!

I talk with the acclaimed actor and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador about her work for children in conflict zones. Mia Farrow traces her committment to humanitarian causes from an early age growing up in Beverly Hills, and dicusses the role of celebrity in bringing to light the suffering of vulnerable people in oft-ignored parts of the world. Oh, and she also tells me about the time she beat up a man beating a woman on the side of the road in Chad!

It’s a great conversation.  Some links mentioned:  Her UNICEF page. Her Darfur Archives project. And MiaFarrow.org
