This piece involved 3 months of research, 4 rewrites and me taking several other side jobs to be able to afford to write this piece the exact way I wanted to sans edits or word counts. I really wish I got paid for this but I really didn’t want to have to compromise anything on this particular piece. Listen to my podcast Dart Against Humanity and my upcoming Boston basketball project The Boston Legends podcast presented by IV Boston x Mathmatik Athletics.
