What’s In It For Us, theGrio’s weekly political podcast hosted by Christina Greer, PhD.,  welcomes special guest, Comedian, Actress and Host of the Friends Like Us Podcast, Marina Franklin.

This week marks the one-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd. We reflect on how his death sparked global cries for justice, protests and unrest. Franklin talks about how she tackles Black trauma and inequality on the stage. 

Also, how do we laugh to keep from crying? Legendary Comedian Paul Mooney definitely showed us the way. The comic passed away recently from a heart attack. We talk his massive impact on comedy and the political power of radical and unyielding honesty and humor.

With so much going on we have to stop and ask: What’s In It For Us?
