So CURRENT

I could be the poster gal for TIME'S UP. Been at this spec feature/tv writing, etc circus for decades. Their info is most current, realistic, applicable! I pass info on to my newbie writer adult son. Amazing how quickly they've become acclimated and successful! Thanks for sharing with us all. I was in the soup circus before I became a mom. I chose motherhood over the soup due to the stress of starving and having unreliable pay. I was a nurse when I tried to get into the biz. So glad I had bedpans and babies to supplement my meager assistant income. Never quit!!

Hilarious and Insightful!!!

Nick and Alex are fantastic! They have such a refreshing and fun podcast that has helped me get a new perspective and answer questions about the entertainment business in such a fresh and approachable way. They are HILARIOUS too! Note to the wise: Don’t listen to this podcast while you are doing your make up. I may of had to redo it a couple times…

Thank You!!!

I am so thankful to the entire team. I was fortunate long ago to be an actual writer’s assistant and I wish your show had existed so that I could’ve had the insight it provides.

If you want to write for TV, which I still do, this podcast is a Must!!!
