The new podcast "Hollywood, The Sequel" from LAist Studios released last week and is currently available wherever you get your podcasts, and this week on FilmWeek we thought we'd share a taste of it with you to round out the show.

Hosted by KPCC's John Horn, it features prominent voices in Hollywood talking about how their industry is evolving, both amid the production stoppage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the social justice movement that has amplified the ongoing calls for better equity, representation and access in entertainment.

Today on AirTalk, we’ll share a portion of the pilot episode of “Hollywood, The Sequel” in which host John Horn talks with actor, director and producer Kerry Washington about how the way she tells stories, and the stories that people want to hear, are currently changing and just how different they might look when production resumes in earnest.

You can hear John’s full interview with Kerry Washington in the pilot episode of “Hollywood, The Sequel,” available wherever you get your podcasts. For more information and the full slate of podcasts from KPCC and LAist Studios, click here.
