Andrew Yang, Joe Rogan and the Problem of Expecting Absolute Conformity in the Two Party System; Also, Bill Russell’s True American Life

James Keys and Tunde Ogunlana discuss America’s two political party system, how the newly announced 3rd party, Forward, and its co-chairs Andrew Yang and Christine Whitman can make an impact, and why Joe Rogan pushback against claims that he is a Republican is also a pushback against the increasingly prevalent expectation that everyone must conform to the entire platform of one of the two dominant political parties (01:25).  The guys also reflect on the life and legacy of Bill Russell (36:30).
