The story of one of America's first politically active athletes isn't what you think


Author Dave Zirin co-wrote a book with former Seahawks star Michael Bennett about being an athlete who is also politically outspoken. Now Zirin's new book is about one of America's first activist athletes, it's called "Jim Brown: Last Man Standing."

Also, there are questions about a WA state cabinet official accused of making female colleagues uncomfortable. Was his resignation voluntary? Why did he get to stay on the state payroll until he reached retirement age?

And we hear again from Celeste Ng who wrote the best seller "Everything I Never Told You" and her most recent novel, "Little Fires Everywhere."
