Next month, comedian Louis C.K. will bring his latest tour to stages in Phoenix and Tucson.

He was at the top of the industry until accusations of sexual misconduct — which he acknowledged and later apologized for.

Does it make sense that Louis C.K., or any other admitted perpetrator of unacceptable sexual behavior or harassment, is able to return in what many would consider a very quick way — only two years or so after a New York Times article that offered details on the comedian’s misdeeds?

Joining The Show to talk about that is Michelle Saint, a lecturer in philosophy at Arizona State University.
