    Basketball legend and coach Dawn Staley is here with the latest on Brittney Griner—one of the best players in the WNBA—who has been detained in Russia since February after officials allegedly found cannabis oil in her luggage. Dawn and Jon break down the financial inequalities of the WNBA, how we can keep players from becoming political pawns, and what needs to happen to get Griner home. Plus, writers Tocarra Mallard and Kasaun Wilson tell the odd tale of how Stephon Marbury starred in a Chinese musical about himself.

Everything I need right now

Perfectly titled. Just press play and listen.

*Thank you to Tocarra and Kris for making me feel seen (and for making me laugh which has not been easy this past week). Thank you to the law professors for teaching me a thing or two about Originalism. And thank you Jon for always joining the conversation and defending what's right as vehemently as you do. Seeing/hearing you passionately and intellectually pose and defend strong arguments gives me life and makes me feel empowered.

Interesting view of current events

This podcast format is my favorite. An interesting conversation with intelligent people about crucial issues. And somehow the humor sprinkled through makes it easier to process.
