Episode 2: Daddy Issues

Episode 2: Daddy Issues

What's your voice? Is it "darkness twinged with unbridled joy"? Or perhaps "sexual and optimistic"? Natalie revisits "Daddy Issues," a half hour pilot she wrote about a stripper who reunites with her recovering sex addict father (it's a comedy, she swears). Natalie has mixed feelings about it and tries to figure out if it still represents her voice. After the reading, she sits down with her long-time friend and writing partner Ruben Medina to discuss their current state of anxieties, the fleeting nature of friendships, balancing a social life with working and how they fit in the diverse writing landscape. Along the way, they try and help each other make sense of their own voices. This episode's cast of readers includes Ruben Medina, Emily Mellin, Joe Raines, Wes Van Horn and Sarah Wines.
