Movieville Podcast Episode 36: Diversity, The Brexit, & SELF GROIN PUNCHING

This month, we're talking about a sensitive subject to many. It's something that's been existent in film and tv for as far back as I can remember, and the latest episode of the podcast is a discussion about diversity (or lack thereof) in Hollywood today.

Listen to the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher, if you like.

Considering the recent events at this year's Oscars, there was an interesting discussion to be had about not just this, but other topics surrounding this event.

A quick disclaimer before you listen - this episode is an attempt to have an open conversation about diversity issues in Film and TV, especially lack of racially diverse talent. We attempt to discuss our opinions of the current situation from our non-white perspective and do not intend any offence or negative sentiment towards any group of people. We hope everything we have said will be taken in context so we can have ongoing discussions around these sensitive topics.
