Can’t be the end!!!
Guys this can’t be the end, this podcast is too important
So glad they’re back!
Savoring every moment of this return and keeping hope alive for that eventual Denzel appearance!
Really funny, refreshingly insightful conversation about Denzel, race and art/entertainment
Started listening because I LOVE Denzel as an actor, and truly felt he was the greatest - and I couldn't believe that other people shared this opinion enough to make a podcast. That hooked me, but what keeps me coming back is the smart commentary that often goes beyond Denzel - and has expanded with really great guests with perspectives on the craft, race and the entertainment business that elevated the podcast to a must listen status.
