Skimm'd from The Couch - December 12, 2018 - 34:55

Samantha Barry grew up in Ireland. And she always knew news was the path for her. Sam started out her career as a researcher, and then became an international reporter.

On the couch, she talks to us about being fearless, making changes at an established company, and the three ways she negotiates for herself.
