Another woke podcast with a white male show runner who hates himself telling other white males how evil they are. Absolutely pathetic, but indicative of the times we live in. Here's an idea: why don't you adapt shows written by non-whites?

Description

Join host Jason Concepcion and Foundation’s showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer as they discuss adapting Isaac Asimov’s iconic novels for the screen. Writers from the show chat with Jason and David to unpack the latest episode of the Apple Original series, giving viewers a deeper dive into the story. Episodes of the show and the podcast premiere on Fridays. So watch first on Apple TV+ (where available), then listen to the podcast for the ultimate Foundation experience.
