‘Dear White People’ Creator Justin Simien Debuts ‘Don’t @ Me’ Podcast

Writer/director Justin Simien has officially launched his new KCRW podcast Don’t @ Me. The creator of Netflix’s hit show Dear White People said the podcast is “an attitude”, and it will tackle social issues like gender, race, and sexuality.

Each episode will feature a different guest, and it will be conversations between artists and creatives who are currently shaping our culture.

“It’s when you want to say something on your Twitter or Instagram without getting hit by immediate ‘well, actuallys’ or think pieces without thought,” said Simien. “This is a safe space for trendsetters and troublemakers to get together without filter or interruption.”

In its first episode, Simien will welcome Emmy-winning writer and The Chi creator Lena Waithe, as well as Underground star Misha Green. The episode will be a conversation on what it means to be out and Black in Hollywood.
