Roxane Gay has never shied away from writing about racism, being overweight, sexual assault or her bisexuality. Her new book of short stories, "Difficult Women," dives deep into these same topics. She joins us to talk about her work, the language of protest and Simon & Schuster canceling Milo Yiannopoulos' book. Gay pulled out of her deal with the publisher in January after it extended a $250,000 contract to the provocateur associated with Breitbart News.

Guests:

Roxane Gay, author, "Difficult Women," "Bad Feminist," "An Untamed State" and "World of Wakanda"
