Ricki is someone you will likely know. She is a beloved pop-culture actress, had her own talk show for a dozen years, and now is a documentary filmmaker.

Abby is an award-winning director and producer of documentary films. The two have teamed up creatively for more than a decade to make films that inform, educate and portray incredible humanity.

In the podcast, we talk about cannabis—and specifically about the use of it to help treat children’s cancer, which is the topic of their current documentary, “Weed the People.”
