Austin, TX (Part 2)
September 23, 2017
Today was so much fun!
Larry Wilmore’s show, Black on the Air, hosted special guest Cecile Richards. She was cool, and Larry was hilarious (of course). Great, great show.
Then, as we were walking around the UT campus, I had a severely lame moment. Deray Mckesson was walking towards us on the sidewalk! I froke out. I really wanted to say something him, especially since he wasn’t surrounded by a mob of people, but I couldn’t think of anything in time. As he walked past, I lamely said, “I love your podcast!” He turned, smiled, said, “Thanks,” and kept walking. I really should’ve tried to shake his hand or something. He’s so cool. A little while later, we were able to see him, Cecile Richards, and Ezra Levin in a panel on “The Resistance.”
Finally, we got to see Ana Marie Cox and her guest Michael Steele for a live recording of the With Friends Like These podcast. I didn’t much care for Michael Steele, but it was still a good show. (NOTE: I even asked a question, so you might be able to hear me on the episode when it comes out!)
Anyway, we had so much fun. I’m so glad that we had the opportunity to go!
