Notes: For the first half hour of the program, leading up to the unveiling of episode 7 of her immensely popular web series Awkward Black Girl, Ms Jo-Issa Rae Diop, creator and star of the series, joined me to dish on the immense popularity of the series, and the boost it's given her, signing with an agent, and prepping a TV show based on the series; and for the second 30 minutes, Rashaad Ernesto Green, whose feature film debut, the critically acclaimed Gun Hill Road, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and which opens in theaters this Friday, in new York City, talked about the making of the film, his process as an actor-turned-director, career expectations, and much more.

Listen to the entire episode below... which was recorded on Wednesday, August 3rd, from 8pm to 9pm EST.
