The Bentonville Film Festival; Transition in Late Night

Actress Geena Davis has long been an advocate for women in film. Now Davis and ARC Entertainment CEO Trevor Drinkwater have joined forces with Wal-Mart to host a film festival with an emphasis on women and diversity. Davis tells us why improvements for women in the industry have stalled over time, and how she hopes to make a lasting change with this festival. And Rick Ludwin, the former head of late night at NBC stopped by The Spin-off podcast recently. We share part of his conversation about why The Tonight Show has spurred so many battles over the years.
