Part 1: Clint Romesha is a third-generation Army veteran whose grandfather served in World War II and father served in Vietnam. In Afghanistan in 2009, a wounded Staff Sgt. Romesha led his comrades in a successful counterattack against 300 insurgents, earning him the Congressional Medal of Honor. In this conversation, he'll reflect on his wartime experiences and how the lessons learned have influenced his peacetime career in the energy industry and his life as a family man.

Part 2: A conversation between former film executive and philanthropist Sherry Lansing and the Hollywood Reporter's Stephen Galloway on her biography, "Leading Lady: Sherry Lansing and the Making of a Hollywood Groundbreaker."
