327: Late Night

Published 28 August 2019 Hosted by Katie Molloy and Melissa Savage

Mindy Kaling gave Emma Thompson the great gift of this role as the host of a long-running late night show facing oblivion as her show nears three decades on air. Kaling takes her expert-level rom-com game and applies it here to the story of a diversity hire in a white, male world, taking us on a tour of how race and gender play out in Hollywood with a comedic touch.

Please also enjoy the dulcet tones of baby burbling as Mel recorded this episode with her seven week old daughter strapped to her chest.
