As the world settled into lockdown, TV entertainment went from distraction to lifeline. With audiences trying to make sense of world events, stories and characters matter more than ever.

The editors of some of the most binge-worthy shows reflect on how their work landed in this time and place, what the stories meant to audiences, and how that affected their process during a pandemic.

Inspiring content and worth the listen
I’ve been listening to the podcast for two years now and have continued to be inspired and amazed by the content! Film content often highlights directors and writers and actors... this is such a unique opportunity for editors to shine! And being able to listen to some of my favourite editors talk about my favourite TV shows or films is super cool!
