Ford and Shannon Houston are back to discuss the HBO’s new film “Between The World And Me,” based on the 2015 book by Ta-Nehisi Coates and the 2018 stage adaptation directed by Kamilah Forbes at the Apollo Theater, as well as the companion podcast produced by HBO, Spoke Media and Domino Sound. First they debrief what it’s been like to see audiences react to Lovecraft Country since its finale. Then, they unpack a few favorite moments in “Between The World And Me” that caused them to reflect on how white supremacy impacted the entertainment they grew up with and the gut-wrenching fear that comes with Black parents’ love.
