"You know you try to have fun with how scary this might be. I think ultimately comedy is cathartic. I think it's empowering. I think it's important to laugh at the things that scare you because I think it can help you.  You can fight that person more effectively. But I'm telling jokes but I'm going to be honest it's a hard time."

We’ve got a special episode for you this week featuring Jamil Smith in conversation with comedian Dean Obeidallah, host of the eponymous SiriusXM radio show. Jamil and Dean cover a broad range of subjects, from the Muslim Ban to what to make of the first weeks of Trump’s presidency.
