Mike Simpson is a writer and contributor to Crooked Scoreboard. Earlier this week, he authored a piece about the late Muhammad Ali: "Muhammad Ali: All That’s Left Behind Is An Empty Space." Here's an excerpt:
“If we are to assume Muhammad Ali’s legacy is something larger than boxing–if we are to assume his legacy is tied directly to his commitment to human rights, and to the sacrifices he made in order to pursue them, and his commitment to living a reasonably just life–I’m stuck wondering out loud if we can find any tangible proof that his legacy has meant anything to us at all.”
In this episode of the podcast, we invite Mike to elaborate on his Ali thoughts, and explore the greater societal implications of the luminary's legacy...
And then we cut it with the serious stuff and discuss Larry the Cable Guy, bad tweets, and the anatomy of joke-writing.
