The Trial

#CONAN: Baratunde Thurston Full Interview - CONAN on TBS

OMFG I WAS ON CONAN THIS WEEK! We talked mostly about How To Citizen. Click above for the full length video. Homeboy had us talking for almost 30 minutes!

WHAT’S UP WITH ME

Season 2 of How To Citizen with Baratunde is fully out of the starting block. We dropped episode two this week, featuring Heather McGhee, author of The Sum of Us. We’re getting deeper into the case for making a better economy that allows us to be better citizens, and Heather set the record straight on the history of exclusion in our economy.

I was on The Bakari Sellers podcast, and I can’t believe it took this long for us to finally meet. This is one very sharp dude!

Have a great weekend. That’s it!
