Episode 52 - Roy Wood Jr. and Franchesca Ramsey fighting trolls with truth and satire

Recommended Posts

How does social commentary and comedy mix? W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu are joined with guests Roy Wood Jr. (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah) and Franchesca Ramsey (MTV’s Decoded) to explore the power of humor in today’s polarizing political era. Roy talks about the new sense of diversity on ‘The Daily Show’ and dissects a rising style of comedy where comedians get audiences to clap in agreement rather than laugh at jokes. Franchesca describes her balancing act with social media and how she avoids sexist and racist trolls online while maintaining her popular presence and personal life.
