Great content even for a non-writer!

I’m an actor and producer. Not a writer. But I love this podcast. The perspective it gives me for the scripts I’m working on is invaluable. I love hearing how the sausage gets made so to speak, and Pilar’s expertise gives me a leg up when I’m evaluating and/or breaking down a script! Thank you for all you do and keep those brilliant writers coming! We need you to do our work! Teamwork makes the Dream Work!
