"On Second Thought" For Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019

Allison Ausband began her career with Delta Air Lines in 1985 as a flight attendant. Today, she's senior vice president of in-flight service at Delta, leading a team of more than 23,000 flight attendants around the world.

Before Ausband joined Delta, she was a broadcast journalist. She graduated from the University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism.


Ausband joined "On Second Thought" in studio for a conversation about how her journalism background served her in connecting with customers on Delta flights. She also shared about getting back in the air after the September 11 attacks, climbing the corporate ladder while often being the only woman in the room, and leading Delta's efforts to fight human trafficking ahead of the Super Bowl in Atlanta. 

Atlanta native Chad Darnell hits the stage as Hedwig in a new Atlanta production of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," opening at the Pinch 'N' Ouch Theatre on Jan. 10. The musical tells the story of Hedwig Robinson, a genderfluid German rock singer who navigates love, loss and identity. Darnell joined "On Second Thought" to discuss the musical's impact over 20 years after its off-Broadway debut and why he's excited to perform in front of Atlanta audiences.
