The guys then turn to the new Ghost Busters movie and talk about how it seems Hollywood is at least making an effort to cast women in major roles. But one staff member thinks this movie is going to tank and tank hard…the guys debate the merits of a recycled script used to push the agenda of progress.

Finally the conversation finishes with a debate about the state of America’s political landscape and how the American people seem to be on the verge of getting “Trumped.”

    There is a reason we love “Off The Record” keep up the good work. I only listen to CHH and I have no idea what to recommend to Dave outside of Dream Junkies…when I drive Uber they are a real crowd please outside of Christon Gray and SpzyRkt.

    Also I think Ghostbusters will do well. That brings so much nostalgia from my childhood, I know Imma see it and probably many other 80s babies. Also girl power all day Dan!

    Adan hit the nail in the head RE Zoe/Nina fiasco. Zoe is a great actress and should not be attacked because of this but the issue still stands that there is a lack of roles for black women in Holywood. I also think this issue is highlighted by the fact that we all, myself included, go to the well Viola Davis could have done it. The point is there is this one amazing go to lady??? I know other were thought of but she was the star out for 2 or 3 candidates that too is an issue.

    Any way keep doing what your doing guys and forth because I love it. I will pray for you and the citizens of America that Mr Trump does not get his hands on your country.

    Lots of London love x
