Hey Auntie! Angela Bassett Is Here, Plus 'Blindspotting’s Daveed Diggs & Rafael Casel Came Through
Prepare yourself for a moment in Black Hollywood excellence as we share an epic conversation with screen queen Angela Bassett (@imangelabassett). Bassett, who’s in the soon-to-be summer hit Mission Impossible: Fallout, shares her secrets to ageless beauty, a lasting career and a peaceful family (hint: her kids aren’t allowed to have cell phones). And yes, we asked the sixty-year-old stunner to recite a classic line from What’s Love Got To Do With It. You’ll never guess which one it is. Plus: Charli (@ManWifeDog) relives her Oakland days with Bay Boys Daveed Diggs (@daveeddiggs) and Rafael Casal (@rafaelcasal), who both wrote and star in the buzzy buddy film Blindspotting. -- Angela Bassett starts at 12:00 Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal interview: 31:00 -- Yes, Girl! hosts: Cori Murray @corimurray; Charli Penn @ManWifeDog; and Yolanda Sangweni @yolizama Producer: Steven Psyllos @stevenpsyllos Audio engineer: Chiquita Pascal @ChiquitaPaschal Music: Gold Standard Creative @gscdotnyc
