Perhaps one of the reasons the gender inequality issue in the entertainment business is so pervasive is how we men interact with one another.
Sexual harassment is no joking matter, and the topic has become a focus in the entertainment biz with the recent resignation of Fox News president Roger Ailes after allegations by popular Fox anchors like Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson of sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct . In today’s episode, miniseries co-producer Yolanda T. Cochran is back with her business partner Christina Kremer to discuss an issue related to this topic that may literally frighten you.
We also get some funny yet pointed perspective from my friend and Being Boss podcast co-host Kathleen Shannon of Braid Creative.
