Karina Longworth, host of the vastly popular podcast You Must Remember This—about old Hollywood— is our guest, and we’re talking about the industry: its most surprising characters, its most under-known figures, its race issues, and the women behind the men who made it big. It’s a pretty fascinating conversation, and I learned so much I did not know. Listen in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
Like so many of you, my podcast partner Tally and I have been deeply affected by George Floyd’s murder at the hands of the police, and the subsequent unrest across the country and world. We wondered what we might be able to contribute to the conversation, and decided to invite TV writer, author, and friend of the show Danielle Henderson back on after we saw this powerful monologue, which Danielle posted on her Instagram, and which has been viewed, last I checked, over 300,000 times. We let Danielle set the agenda, and the resulting conversation is tough, thought-provoking, and even a little encouraging.
