A Nerdette Inauguration Special

Former U.S. Senator Carol Moseley Braun joins us from D.C. Plus we break down the state of the union with the hosts of the FANTI podcast.

This year’s presidential inauguration managed to muster up as much pageantry as possible, given the circumstances. Despite the pandemic and concerns over national security, the United States saw another peaceful transition of power.

Carol Moseley Braun, the first Black woman elected to the U.S. Senate, was in attendance. She tells Nerdette host Greta Johnsen what it was like to see another woman make history with the swearing-in of Vice President Kamala Harris. Plus, FANTI podcast hosts Tre’vell Anderson and Jarrett Hill unpack their complicated feelings about America in 2021.
