Episode 8: Lauren Milberger - How I Met My Genre Obcast - Near-Earth Object

    • Gesellschaft und Kultur

​I last saw Lauren in person about 12 years ago when we were both students at the Actors Studio Drama School in New York. She stayed, I didn't. Already brilliant and funny when I knew her then, she's since come into her own as a performer, as a writer, and as a human being in a way I truly admire. In our discussion (long again, I know, I'm sorry), we talk about the craft of acting, her love of the medium of television, the genesis of her play in development about George Burns and Gracie Allen, and why we think Aaron Sorkin is so damn good. Duration:​ 82 minutes. Subscribe to the Obcast in iTunes or through this link. Links from the show: Lauren's website Her essay on Gracie Allen at​ Travalanche Her essay on Burns and Allen, (mostly) available through Google Books​ Lauren's blog project #GirlWriter​ Lauren on Twitter as @LaurenMilberger​ "I went into the piece thinking I was Gracie, and I came out realizing that I'm George."​
