Summary: Featured speakers/guests:

** "In the case of playing Malcolm X in Ali, I had always been interested in Malcolm, and also in the dynamic between Malcolm and Dr. King. But I also had the opportunity to meet Malcolm's daughter, who helped me play her dad who was such an icon. And to work with people that I grew up hearing about and admiring, and to play someone like that was - what an opportunity, what an honor."

A Conversation With Mario Van Peebles. Van Peebles phones in to talk about the challenges of playing it real on screen. Including his role as Malcolm in the 2001 biopic Ali, and both directing and starring in Panther, as '60s SNCC Civil Rights Movement activist Stokely Carmichael. Van Peebles is on the line to the show to discuss as well, the current Deep South gothic television series he produces, stars in, writes and directs - Superstition.

Sundance Film Festival 2018: Actor Jason Ritter phones in. Reflecting on his latest film he'll be taking to Sundance, The Tale. A dramatic feature starring Laura Dern, and based on the filmmaker Jennifer Fox's own traumatic childhood memories of sexual exploitation, involving her grooming and manipulation by an adult male when she was thirteen years old. Ritter also touches on the tragic sudden passing of the actor in the film whom he plays as a younger man - John Heard. And he delves as well into his current small screen series, Kevin (Probably) Saves The World - and how he might mull saving the world himself, for real.

** "Ray and I have been on this magical journey since we were fourteen - two young kids from Birmingham who reached for the stars - You will always be by my side."

Music Corner: Moody Blues musician John Lodge in conversation. Revisiting the euphoria and the legacy of the UK classic rock band, to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April.

Caleb Maupin On The Hot Seat: Ask Me Anything! The political analyst, activist and RT reporter tackles some tough questions sent in to him - and a demand for answers pertaining to world events, geopolitics and history. Including what to expect with the assault on the information revolution in 2018; what in the world is a tankie; don't call me a Stalinist - and does a book shelf behind me make me smart.

Poetry Corner: Some passionately offbeat words of wisdom from the late subversively iconic wordsmith, Charles Bukowski. Which happens to also be inscribed on his California tombstone.
