Whose Opinions & Feelings (Should) Matter (According To MWM) w/@JackiSchechner & @KatieHnida — #KatieSpeakShow Ep22 02/06/2016

So, it seems Mich Albums heard about the hoopla around his, well, I’ll be generous and say “poorly constructed” comments re: the FSU rape survivor. I played his retort in all its smarminess and my response before diving into the NFL’s unfortunate first “Woman’s Summit.” Spoiler: domestic/intimate partner violence wasn’t on the schedule.

Katie and I do some Superbowl preview and talk the NFL’s DV/IPV problem as well as her contribution to my Albom take-down at The Establishment. Jacki lends her years of political coverage to the election through the Iowa Caucus — still very relevant a few weeks later.
