A podcast where playwrights talk to playwrights about the things usually left unsaid. In a conversation that dives into life’s muck, we learn what irks, agitates, motivates, inspires and — ultimately — what makes writers tick.
In this episode, Brian chats with Madhuri Shekar about how to handle insecurity when your peers succeed, about writing plays from an unfamiliar cultural perspective, and how Brian is more or less responsible for every good thing that’s ever happened in Madhuri’s life.
