: Age of Distraction 3: Is Social Change Driving the Story
On this episode of The Conversations Podcast, The HMC continues its series, Writing in the Age of Distraction with Part 3: Is Social Change Driving the Story. Host Sarah Mason sits down with screenwriters Warren Lewis (BLACK RAIN) and Stephen Godchaux (Roseanne, Dead Like Me) to discuss writing in a politically charged era -- how and why social movements like #MeToo #BlackLivesMatter and #Parkland are driving storylines from Roseanne to Big Little Lies to Get Out. Should story creators be in the bridge building business or simply entertainment us, and does the success of Black Panther suggest audiences want both? We discuss all this and more.
