Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau B...
With the political circus of the 2016 presidential election heating up, you can laugh or you can cry. Choose to laugh. Comedians and longtime friends W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu have a shared curiosity about politics and our constantly changing electoral landscape. Whether it's an interest in exposing the unjust or the absurd, you can count on Hari and Kamau to ask the important "why?" Why do we have super delegates? Why is it still so hard for people to vote? Why was Joe the Plumber a thing? They'll try to answer questions like those each and every week throughout the election.
