Roughly Speaking episode 334:

In the seventh in a series of interviews with candidates for governor of Maryland, Dan speaks with Krish Vignarajah, a 38-year-old attorney and former policy adviser to Michelle Obama. She is one of eight candidates seeking the Democratic nomination in 2018. Born in Sri Lanka, Vignarajah grew up in Baltimore and Baltimore County, the daughter of public school teachers who emigrated to the United States to escape civil war in their native country. The Yale- and Oxford-educated Vignarajah worked in the State Department and as policy director for Michelle Obama when she was first lady. Questions have been raised about Vignarajah's eligibility to run for governor, but Vignarajah, 38, insists she meets the legal requirements to do so and vows to be on the June ballot.
