It's ba-ack. Here's the second episode of the new podcast, 3rd & Fairfax, from the Writers Guild of America. Last week, the writer guest being interviewed was award-winning writer Margaret Nagle. And this week -- she returns, but on on the other side of the microphone, interviewing Emmy-winning writer Danny Strong.
Strong won his Emmy for the HBO film, Recount, about the Bush v. Gore 2000 election. But he may be even better known for writing the final two films in the Hunger Games series: Mockingjay, Part 1 and the upcoming Part 2. He's also had a long career as an actor, including recurring roles on Mad Men and Justified.
The episode includes an interview concerning WGA matters, this with the head of membership, Patrick Cannon. On the possibility that that might not be of as much interest to everyone -- though the subject matter does include getting into the Guild -- the magic of podcasting includes the concept of fast-forwarding, and Danny Strong's entertaining interview and story telling kicks in at the 17:05 mark. (I was going to say "about the 17:05 mark, but that's pretty specific, so I think you're well-covered.)
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
