Long time Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo answered questions from listeners on the latest episode of the podcast, Tell me with Ellen Pompeo. When someone asked her what issue she would like to tackle next in a progressive medical drama, she was open.

“That’s a difficult question to answer,” Pompeo said, “because we actually covered a lot of very important topics … in one episode about certain things.”

Shonda Rimes created and executive produced the ABC show, which Pompeo also produces, for 18 seasons dealing with difficult topics including police brutality, immigration, abortion, racism, opioid addiction and much more.

“It’s like we’re doing one episode about … let’s see, Asian hate crimes are crimes that we did last season, and that was really exciting,” Pompeo said. “I think I’d like to see things happen a little more subtly and over time. You know, consistently and less banging over the head for just one hour and then we’re not going to talk about it anymore. . . I wish we could kind of touch on these important and important social issues and so that they are like a thread.
