Was Dr. Cooper on the Daily Show w/ Trevor Noah?

Her voice sounds familiar. I'd look it up but I'm I'm on the road. Thanks for your work and the research everyone does to create this podcast. Salud!

Dr Cooper

Yes, indeed, there is a little clip of the appearance on YouTube. She is quite prominent in the media, I believe, and rightly so. When we interviewed her, it was very clear she had a lot of experience with the situation!
