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!)
