Dr. Rhea Boyd + The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears

Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell & Hari Kondabolu

Do Black people have an attitude problem about the COVID-19 vaccine? Dr. Rhea Boyd says absolutely not—the problem is lack of access to the vaccine and to real information. So she's launched BetweenUsAboutUs, a national campaign with Black doctors, scientists, and health care professionals (and a certain podcast host), to give Black communities the resources they need to make informed choices and get vaccinated.Then Kamau and Hari have the conversation that every politically engaged basketball fan dreams of with Marc J. Spears, Senior NBA writer for The Undefeated. Hear the full story of how the league shut down after the police killing of Jacob Blake, the underappreciated impact NBA players had on the 2020 election, and what it will take for Becky Hammon to get a real shot as the league's first female head coach. Marc also attempts to convert our resident Knicks fan to the Nets. It doesn't work.Plus: Hari's anticolonialist recap of Oprah's takedown of the British royal family.Find our guests:Dr. Rhea Boyd (@RheaBoydMD) https://rheaboyd.comMarc J.
