I am coming up on the one year anniversary of doing the Herstory of Hollywood podcast, and I am working on expressing what I have learned throughout this process. It has already been such a journey and my thoughts are continually evolving around the topic of women in business, and in entertainment, and gender equality and inclusion in general. More to come on that soon...
In the meantime, I spoke with Ron Dawson of Radio Film School for his and Yolanda Cochran's series, Breaking the Glass, early on in this process. I had a lot to say at the time, and this was early days. I fear I'm only getting more lippy as time goes on. See what I did there? I self deprecated and apologized for my opinionated self - even in the midst of self promoting. There, I did it again. See? This stuff is deep.
Nevertheless, I persist, and I stand by the things I said here. It was fun being on the other side of the interview, and what Yolanda put together in this episode is important. My favorite part is something Yolanda said. Stop with the namby pamby programs. Ryan Murphy showed it can just be done. No hand wringing necessary.
Here, have a listen:
