Play episode · 1 hr 27 min
At the top of the show, we spend some time on Chadwick Boseman's legacy and the crushing blow that is the loss of a brilliant mind, creator, and humanitarian too soon. We'll be inviting listeners to join us next weekend for a Black Panther watch party in celebration of Chadwick's life - keep an eye on our social channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) for more info.
