The 10 Spot #3: Nicki Weisensee Egan


I discovered the podcast Chasing Cosby much in the same way I discovered the truth about my former favorite comedian; anticlimactically.


In the infancy of viral videos, I remember clicking on a link that somebody shared on Facebook. While I don’t remember the exact wording of the link’s headline, I do remember it got right to the point that a comedian was calling Bill Cosby a rapist during a show in Philadelphia.


I watched the video of comedian Hannibal Buress talking about Cosby’s smugness, and the irony of how he was so quick to point out the flaws of fellow comedians and fellow African-Americans, yet he had been accused of rape. In one of the last lines of the video, Buress urges people to google “Bill Cosby rape”, adding that it “…has more results than Hannibal Buress.”


So at the behest of Mr. Buress, I googled “Bill Cosby rape”, and that’s how I discovered the truth about the man dubbed “America’s Dad”.
