Genre: Interview/Panel Discussion
What It's About: Writers talking writing, as the theme song says. In each edition, a group of two or more writers (mostly TV writers) sits with moderator Ben Blacker to talk about the process of writing from both a creative and a business perspective.
Why You Should Care: For people interested in the process of writing for TV, this series offers a great overview. But for people who simply enjoy watching TV, these are informative and funny discussions about how some of your favorite shows came to be - what inspired the original concept, how it changed during development, and how the showrunners navigate the daily process of keeping a show going... and going well. Most editions of this podcast are recorded in front of an audience, which keeps things lively and entertaining.
Average Length: An hour and a half
