About the Show
“Retake with John Horn”, a new podcast from LAist Studios, asks: do the stories that Hollywood tells about itself really reflect what's going on? Hosted by veteran entertainment reporter John Horn, Retake provides a critical, informed perspective at a time of tumultuous change in the entertainment business.
Each week, John challenges conventional show business wisdom, talking to insiders with a distinct point of view, tracking the industry’s attempts - or lack thereof - to become more inclusive, and keeping tabs on the forces that maintain the status quo. Each episode helps you navigate the countless hours of entertainment now available, he’ll also highlight innovative work that he thinks deserves your attention, anchored by in-depth interviews with filmmakers, TV writers and other creators.
