Chadwick Boseman died on Friday August 28th of colon cancer at the young age of 43, and in his wake he leaves an unassailable legacy of television roles, film performances, and social justice work. Jane, Nathan, and Devin spend this episode discussing the impact that Boseman made on the world in just 7 short years of being a bona fide movie star from his first leading role in 42 (2013) through his upcoming final performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020). The gang unpacks their own feelings about his death within this, but the majority of the conversation is about how Boseman became an icon in his own right on par with the larger-than-life characters he tended to portray.
