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.

To woke so soon.

Made it one minute and 15 seconds into Kerry Washington’s wokeness and I was done.
That industry & town has been very much exposed as sleazy, rapey, misogynist, racist, soul crushing, treat people like garbage industries there is and the first thing this podcast does is preach wokeness. I’m done.
