Choice Words with Samantha Bee

We make a lot of choices, every single day. Some explode, some implode, most we barely remember. Each week on Choice Words, Samantha Bee sits down with people she admires to examine the biggest choices they’ve made in their lives and the ripple effects those decisions have had. What’s a story a journalist took a chance on that changed history? A vote that a politician should never have cast? A song lyric a musician came up with in the shower that made them instantly famous?

Sam’s made a lot of choices, too. She may have to interview herself about starting this podcast.
