Podcast of the Week-Janet Mock “Pose”

Janet Mock is interviewed by Terry Gross and you’ll get an excellent insight into the making of the exceptional FX television series Pose. This season the show has hit Shakespearean heights with writing, directing and acting. The recreation of The Balls from the late 1980’s and 1990’s is flawless. You’ll hear about how the non-white GLBTQ community came into its own with grace and humility. Billy Porter heads the amazing cast. But the glue that keeps this show grounded are the trans women of color. The creation of family with separate houses of worship run by Mothers is breathtaking. Janet writes, directs and produces. Her story is awe-inspiring.
