Charlie Rivkin took over as the CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America in late 2017.

In an interview with Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal, Rivkin talked about why President Donald Trump hasn't been bad for the entertainment industry, the enormity of the overseas market for Hollywood movies, and why he's not at all worried about a content bubble.
