Today we are joined by actor, director, and writer Denim Richards.
Most well-known for his role in the TV show Yellowstone, Denim tells us how COVID-19 has affected the filming of the show’s Season 4.
We also talk about the effects the virus has had on America, and the importance of keeping your head screwed on straight in times like these.
We then go onto the history of racism in the US, and whether we think the riots will really make a change to what’s been going on for years.
Finally, we talk about systematic racism in Hollywood and what we can each do to make a positive change.
”Not everyone is going to be infected, but everyone will be affected.” – Denim Richards
