"With the amount of money that is floating around, we should be feeding everyone."

In this episode, Dr Charlie Easmon is joined by Clarke Peters, actor, writer, and director famed for playing Lester Freamon in The Wire

The essence of Clarke’s conversation with Charlie is captured when he explains that the responsibility of an actor is to inform, educate and entertain, which he certainly does for us in this episode of deep thought. Charlie and Clarke discuss their disillusionment with modern food branding and the importance of what you put into your body. They tackle the profiteering war industry, global hunger, the generational change away from community policing, racism, ‘cognitive dissonance,’ AI, and much more! The conversation is direct yet highly uplifting. 

In this episode we discuss:
  • Actors responsibilities
  • Healthy eating
  • Mental health
  • Profit on The Wire
