On this belated episode of Shady Lady, I called Chicago author Sung Yim. Due to a lot of sound issues, the episode doesn't sound the greatest. I explain more of what happened in the intro.
Regardless, Sung Yim is a gifted writer and an incredibly intelligent person. We talk about living through trauma, writing through pain and finding peace. I hope you get a chance to listen to this episode, despite the sound, and get something from it.

Finally got around to doing another episode! First Shady Lady Podcast of the year and the first one since last September! This month I sat down with director Britany "B. Monet" Fennell to talk about her recent films, diversity and the state of Hollywood. We also talk about NYU (where we met), scripting and how exhausting it can be during several creative things at once. And: I talk shit about my frustration with Film Twitter, which Brittany is smart enough to avoid.
