Enes Kanter

Joining Hans on the show this week is New York Knicks starting center Enes Kanter, a Turkish citizen who has had a lot to say about Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan. Recently, the Turkish government issued an arrest warrant for Kanter and revoked his passport after Kanter made parallels of Erdogan’s regime to Hitler. Kanter talks about how he has used his platform in the NBA to shed light on the degradation of democracy in his home country and explain to Americans why they should care.
