    “First Responder Filmmaking” with Kenya Barris

    With his comedy series  “Black-ish” and  “#blackAF,” Kenya Barris has never avoided difficult conversations about race. Entertainment, especially comedy, he says, will push those conversations forward, but there need to be many more versions of what Black lives and other underrepresented experiences look like.

    “Big Checks and Bandaids Won’t Do It” with Ava DuVernay

    Just as advocates for meaningful police reform say you can't simply reassemble broken pieces, Ava DuVernay argues that reform won’t be enough to fix Hollywood. The director of “Selma” and “When They See Us” believes it’ll take drastic change in the executive suites of the networks and studios if Hollywood wants to rid itself of bias.

Not the best start

I love listening to John Horn & I really miss The Frame, but this show is definitely not as good as The Frame. 25 minutes is just too long on a single interview. Kerry Washington is very well spoken & intelligent, but in the last 10 or so minutes the questions start to get weak and I just wished there would be a new infusion of guest or topic.
