Season 1, Ep. 9: Are We OK with Kamau Bell

It’s our first dude on the show! Comedian, author, and United Shades of America host W. Kamau Bell explains how feeling like an outsider shaped his worldview, and gives props to his mom, who smashed barriers of all kinds while raising him alone. Plus: Why it’s OK to laugh at things you don’t agree with, learning the value of listening, and what we really mean when we say there are “two Americas.” Kamau and Alicia also bond over their shared passion for pimple-popping videos. Ai-jen is mildly horrified.
