599: Seriously?

Oct 21, 2016
Watching lies become the truth in this year's election. And a few people who try to bridge the gap between the way the two sides see the facts.
Every day until Election Day, we'll have a new Chris Ware & John Kuramoto animation. See them all.

Watch the video of Leslie Odom, Jr. singing "Seriously," written by Sara Bareilles.

The internet version of this episode contains curse words. If you prefer, here is a bleeped version.
  • We’ve been wondering about some of the things President Obama thinks about the current election, but can’t say publicly. But since he hasn’t told us his thoughts explicitly, we asked singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles – who did the Broadway musical “Waitress” – to imagine those thoughts for us. One of the stars of Hamilton, Leslie Odom Jr., performs the song. Music direction by Nadia DiGiallonardo, strings orchestration by Alex Lacamoire. (4 minutes)
