Grierson and Leitch Conversations: Jeb Lund
Hey, Grierson & Leitch listeners! We have another Grierson & Leitch Conversations show. For several years, Will and writer/podcaster Jeb Lund have done an annual Thanksgiving podcast where they talk about ... well, the state of the planet as it currently exists. It's philosophical, it's nonsensical, it's metaphysical, it's metatarsal. It's a Thanksgiving tradition unlike any other. This year's show, we talk about the impeachment hearings, what it means to work in media but not live in New York City and, for the first time, Will talks in detail on a podcast about what went down with Deadspin.We hope you enjoy.
