Season 3 of the Telly Podcast will present micro conversations in 10 minutes or less with experts reframing our industry on a macro level. Hosted by Managing Director Amanda Needham, the conversations will range from AI tools to those building a creator economy on TikTok.

 In our latest episode, Liz Hynes, a late night TV writer (Last Week with John Oliver) and a Writer’s Guild of America- East council member breaks down the recent writer’s strike. Tune in to hear Liz describe stepping up as a strike captain, the negotiations with studios for a new contract and the future of the industry post-strikes. If you’re wondering whether writers use AI or ChatGPT to spitball ideas, and why it’s taboo to write a rain scene, listen now.
