ART19 and Positively Gam Announce Upcoming Slate of Guests



ART19 announced the upcoming slate for Positively Gam, a podcast from its partnership with Westbrook, hosted by Adrienne Banfield-Norris.

Banfield-Norris, better known as Gammy on Red Table Talk, the show she hosts with her daughter, Jada Pinkett Smith, and granddaughter, Willow Smith, sits down with close friends and experts including Former Senior Advisor to Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Actor Will Smith, actress and Social Media Influencer, Lala Milan & Tabitha Brown, among others. Each episode features raw, in-depth conversations between Gammy and her guests, on everything from aging, relationships, sex and wellness, to the current issues facing the Black community and the inspirational people pushing for progress. Gam shares her perspective on these everyday topics while also learning alongside listeners.

“Westbrook Audio has powerful stories to tell,” said ART19 Chief Revenue Officer Lex Friedman. “Gammy will reach an audience underserved by podcasting, and we’re excited to help them distribute and monetize this series.”

An important upcoming episode features Gam in conversation with her granddaughter Willow Smith discussing Black hair, and another features a dialogue with activist Tamika Mallory on being a single mom, and moving to Louisville, KY for months to work on the Breonna Taylor case.

Adrienne’s conversation with her son-in-law Will Smith dropped on December 16th. In that episode, called “Living Your Life With Compassion,” Will shares his perspective on trying to find common ground with people you may struggle to understand, a topic only more relevant in our increasingly-fractious country.

“Gammy has made her voice and world view known through her incredible work on Red Table Talk,” Friedman said. “We’re excited for listeners and advertisers to hear what happens when she takes over the microphone herself!”

“ART19 has deep experience across podcast sales, operations, technology and support,” said Westbrook’s Media Production Consultant Amanda Brown. “We know we’re in great hands as we continue this journey together.”

Positively Gam, is produced in partnership with Vaseline & Unilever Entertainment, is executive produced by Adrienne Banfield Norris, Jada Pinket Smith, Amanda Brown & Fallon Jethroe. Sim Hothi serves as a co-exec. ART19 is the show’s exclusive distribution and sales partner. The podcast is available on all audio platforms, including Apple and Spotify, with new episodes released every Wednesday.
