Cheddar has been covering the biggest news of the week with some of the biggest names. In case you missed it, we've pulled together some of the highlights that will keep you informed as we get ready for the week ahead.

'The Chi' Season Five

Curtiss Cook stopped by Cheddquarters this week to dish out the details on Season 5 of Showtime's The Chi. The actor stopped by previously to dish about the focus on community in Season 3 but says this time around it's a "season of love." Cook also talked about his experience playing the first Black character to be featured in West Side Story as adapted by Steven Spielberg. Speaking on diversity in Hollywood in general, he told Cheddar News, "I think that it continues to take steps and moving in the right direction. Better is a difficult word sometimes, but I think that the steps that are being made are necessary. And I congratulate them for continuing to make those steps," he told Cheddar.

Diversity & The Recording Academy

Valeisha Butterfield Jones, The Recording Academy co-president, joined Cheddar's Hena Doba to talk about the academy's diversity efforts. In 2020, Jones was initially hired as the organization's first-ever chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer and was promoted to co-president in 2021. "The work over the last two years has been historic," Jones told Cheddar News. "What you saw on Grammy night this year was the work of over two years to make sure that, again, we were truly representing this rich community that we're a part of."

Ex-NHL Player's Psilocybin Push

Daniel Carcillo, the founder of Wesana Health and former NHL player, joined Cheddar this week to talk about his company's push to help people suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury. After playing years in the National Hockey League, he said he sustained at least seven traumatic brain injuries, which eventually led him to retire from the game. He said that he founded Wesana Health after being introduced to psilocybin, the compound found in "magic mushrooms," and follow-up test results allegedly showed that he had no abnormalities in his brain or bloodwork. "I decided to found Wesana and develop this medicine through scientific rigor through the FDA so that people can go to their doctor and get a prescription for this type of treatment."
