The 285 Podcast Ep.1 – Ali, Roots, and Kevin Durant 

Welcome to the 285 podcast page! This week we recorded our very first podcast and took some time to reflect on the icon that was Muhammad Ali who passed at the age of 74. There are few words that could accurately describe the impact Ali had on society but we gave it a shot.

We also talked about the most famous Gorilla of the past few weeks, Hirambe (may he rest in peace.) We answered the question what is the saddest part of this story and did the animal get a raw deal? Our roundtable also discussed the remake of Roots as well as were we think Kevin Durant will end up next season.

All of these topics and more were discussed on our inugural podcast and we also gave out the first 285 awards. 
This weeks panel consist of Iris Craig, Tarik Lewis (@mynameisTarik) and was moderated by Edwin “E-dub” Powell (@the_285
