This week we speak with Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Sympathizer and USC professor Viet Thanh Nguyen. It’s a great conversation, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did taking part in it.

We also have Choice Words about Deion Sanders’s big splash and securing a massive victory against the college football powers that be in recruiting. Don’t miss another great edition of Jake’s Takes as well. All this and more on this week’s show!
