  • Is Donald Glover better than Kanye West?
  • What does this video’s racial symbolism mean?
  • What can this video teach us about black joy?
  • Is Donald Glover leading a new movement of artistic activism?

    The link seems to be broken. Can we get it fixed? I’d love to listen.

    Great podcast as usual gentlemen!
    Your discussion of Glover’s motivation reminded me of Paper Boi’s comment, on the last episode of Atlanta, after he’d boarded the plane for his world tour , “N__s going to do whatever they gotta do to survive because they don’t got a choice.” Do you think this reflects Glover’s philosophy?
