Saying goodbye to “The Colbert Report”

    Listen

    Guests: SHARILYN JOHNSON, ANDY GREENWALD, SARAH GRAY

    Last night, Stephen Colbert left his show, The Colbert Report after nine years of razor sharp satire and pointed criticism of American politics and the media that covers it. Today, we discuss the legacy of The Colbert Report, and what the future holds for its former host. We’ll be joined by comedy journalist and self-described “fake news fan girl” SHARILYN JOHNSON, who co-authored the book Bears and Balls: The Colbert Report A-Z, as well as ANDY GREENWALD who writes about television for Grantland, and by SARAH GRAY, who covers The Colbert Report for Salon.
