Mandy Jackson-Beverly Chats With Cooper Hefner
May 19, 2021 Episode 40
Mandy Jackson-Beverly/Cooper Hefner

I first met Cooper Hefner in 2007, and today he is my guest on the Wednesday Edition of The Bookshop Podcast. We chat about community service, his father's commitment to social justice and civil rights, politics, and a host of other topics.

Cooper Hefner is an American businessman, teacher, author, activist, and reservist in the United States Air Force. He has worked as the chief creative officer and chief of global partnerships at Playboy Enterprises, a company founded by his father Hugh Hefner. 

In July 2020, Cooper launched an exploratory campaign to run as a Democrat for the California Senate in the state's 30th District. Because of a service obligation with the United States Air Force, he announced his decision to suspend the campaign on November 30, 2020.
