In the second of The Upside’s series with political disruptors, Brad chats with Sarah Feinberg, former chief administrator at the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). From the Hill to the White House to Silicon Valley and back, listen in as they discuss what she’s learned during her unique career. Feinberg - one of Uptake’s advisors - shares what it’s like to be inside the White House “situation room,” mitigating potential crude oil train disasters at the FRA, and influencing Silicon Valley to tackle the problems of consequence, and not just convenience. Plus, what former bosses Rahm Emanuel and Sheryl Sandberg have taught her about time management, running a meeting, staying cool under pressure, and more.
