Sean Tuohy talks to the minds behind Amazon’s new series “Comrade Detective”—writers and creators Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka, and director Rhys Thomas.
Today’s guest is Pamela Samuels Young, award-winning author of Anybody’s Daughter, Every Reasonable Doubt, Murder on the Down Low, and the upcoming Abuse of Discretion.
Young talked to Daniel Ford recently about how a desire to see more minority characters in legal thrillers led her to storytelling, her early morning writing process, and her work as an anti-trafficking advocate.
Lynn Povich, pioneering journalist and author of The Good Girls Revolt, talks to Stephanie Schaefer and Daniel Ford about how she got into journalism and the vibe at Newsweek when she first started in the late 1960s. She also spoke about why she wrote The Good Girls Revolt when she did, how the Amazon show based on her book came about, what she thinks about the future of journalism, and how feminism has changed since she entered the workforce.
Boyd Morrison, author of the Tyler Locke series, talks to the guys about his cool careers before becoming a writer, his writing process, which of his characters he’d like to be stuck on a deserted island with, and how perseverance eventually wins out in the writing world.
There is also a debate on whether Alex Trebek looks better with or without a moustache (Morrison just happens to be a one-day Jeopardy! champion).
