“The Wait is Sexy”; then, the WH leaks

Listen 00:49:57

GUEST: YVONNE ORJI

From the outside, it looks like Molly has it all—a secure job as a corporate attorney, a beautiful downtown apartment in LA and active love life.  So what’s the catch? In the HBO comedy series “Insecure,” Molly, played by YVONNE ORJI, battles racial, sexual and gender insecurities that are blocking her from true happiness. In this hour, Marty talks with Orji about her role on the show, her sitcom “First Gen” about a Nigerian girl who trades medical school for a career as a stand-up comedian, and her decision to remain a virgin until she gets married.  Then we shift gears and talk to JEET HEER, senior editor of The New Republic about the ongoing leaks linking President Trump’s campaign to Russia, and how Trump has responded to them.
