CreativeFuture, RIAA Release New Video Podcast Featuring Artists, Policymakers

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and CreativeFuture released the first three episodes of OffScript with Ruth and Mitch, a video podcast hosted by CreativeFuture CEO Ruth Vitale and RIAA CEO Mitch Glazier. The podcast blends conversations about creativity with discussions of relevant policy and social issues.

The first three episodes feature founding member of The Supremes Mary Wilson, Representative Ted Deutch (D, FL-22) and producer Jonathan Yunger (The Expendables, The Hitman’s Bodyguard), and Representative Maria Salazar (R, FL-27) and Miami music legend Emilio Estefan.

“While recording this podcast, Mitch and I had so much fun speaking with some of the world’s most acclaimed creatives and leading policymakers,” says CreativeFuture CEO Ruth Vitale. “Our guests on OffScript – in addition to being great conversationalists – share a passion for creativity and an appreciation for the massive economic contributions made by the creative communities. Their stories of hard work, passion, and dedication are certain to resonate.”

“OffScript brings creators and policymakers together to share stories – from life in the arts and coping with COVID to navigating politics in these strange and challenging times,” says RIAA Chairman & CEO Mitch Glazier. “Ruth and I had a blast talking with these legends and leaders and I think anyone who cares about music, politics, and our culture will find something in Off Script that lifts them up and makes them laugh.”
