The death of someone famous often leads to a sort of collective cultural sadness. Which can be odd, if you think about it, when the person’s life really didn’t intersect with or affect yours at all! What’s that all about? Apropos of Kobe Bryant’s sudden passing, Shannon has thoughts, and we explore them in the first half of the episode.
And then, in the second half … buckle up, because we’re talking politics! Specifically, Democratic primary politics. Shannon’s all in for Elizabeth Warren, and one of our Misfit Stars asked her recently to expound on why, and so she does. (Jamie’s all in for Liz too, btw. Listen to learn why!)
Because of the pandemic, we will be unable to go on our annual summer house concert tour this year. This represents a loss of about 75% of our yearly income. If you have a stable income, please visit https://misfitstars.com/join to make a recurring monthly contribution toward our continued well-being, or https://misfitstars.com/levelup to increase your monthly support amount. Thank you so much for your help through this time; we literally couldn’t do this without you. ❤️
