Episode 54 - What Would Morrie Say About The 2020 Election?

11/3/2020
Morrie Schwartz died three days before Election Day in 1995. Had Morrie been alive to see this year's election, he most likely would have been less concerned about who got into the White House than how we behaved once the election was over.
