Tackling Diversity in Entertainment

There’s been a lot of talk about successful diversity/representation and color-blind casting with shows like Bridgerton, Shadow & Bone and Legends of Tomorrow.

Linsay and Genevieve are joined by three amazing actors to break all this down: Diana Toshiko, Francesca Calo and Brian J. Patterson.
Cruella & The Future of Disney
2021 Jul 091h 2m 33s
The new Cruella movie has a lot of people talking. We loved it, but we want to know how it fits within Disney canon? Is this a sign that, like Maleficent, Disney is taking a fresh look at some of their (outdated) evil female characters? We hope so! Linsay and Genevieve are joined by two amazing guests who are not only Disney experts, but have voiced some iconic characters. Voiceover actors Kaitlyn Robrock, the current voice of Minnie Mouse and Isaac Robinson-Smith, the voice of Black Panther at Avengers Campus as well as some other projects. We dive into Cruella, the pitfalls of live-action remakes of classic animated series, Disneyland and the future of all of Disney’s various outlets. It’s going to be a wild ride!

They are joined by gamers and game designers Sarah Blandy and Lizz Metcalf. Toxic Twitch chats, a continued lack of diversity, the absence of Sony and the lack of focus on indie games, we ask if E3 is still relevant in the modern age.
