George Takei dares Hollywood to explore wider galaxy of talent
From the frontiers of Star Trek to those of the internet, George Takei has made progressive thinking his trademark. The activist and actor — famous for his role as Sulu on Star Trek — doesn't shy away from tough questions and textured debates.
On the heels of the Doctor Strange "whitewashing" controversy, and in the lead up to his visit to Toronto for Pride, Takei joins Shad to discuss a wide range of issues.
Takei reflects on how his childhood in an internment camp marked him forever, how democracies progress and regress at the same time, and why "horrific things happen" when people's fallibility overrides their goodness.
