‘TheWrap-Up’ Podcast: Wendy Williams on Her Lifetime Documentary, Post-Show Plans

Episode 41: Plus, part three in our series “Conversations on Cancel Culture”

This week on “TheWrap-Up,” hosts Sharon Waxman and Daniel Goldblatt discussed Donald Trump’s increasing media presence, Jeffrey Toobin’s unexpected return to CNN and Amy Thurlow’s departure as president of Dick Clark Productions.

Then, we have our interview with daytime talk show legend Wendy Williams. We discuss her documentary, “Wendy Williams: What a Mess,” living her life as a “Hot Topic” and her desire to get into teaching once she’s done with her show.

Finally, we have part three in our ongoing series, “Conversations on Cancel Culture.” In this panel discussion, we dive into the world of comedy — in the age of cancel culture, are comedians pulling their punches? The panel included Nell Scovell (“The Simpsons,” “Murphy Brown” and “Charmed”), Maz Jobrani (“Pandemic Warrior”), Skye Townsend (“A Black Lady Sketch Show”), Matt Rife (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and Suni Reyes (“Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens”). It was moderated by TheWrap’s Daniel Goldblatt.
