Podcast number 46 features a conversation with Irish writer, and actor Sharon Horgan. We recorded it on May 3rd 2017 at the house of a friend of mine in London. Sharon had just come from the new offices of her production company Merman where she had been writing that day with Holly Walsh, Helen Linehan and Graham Linehan on the forthcoming BBC2 sitcom Motherland. We talked about writing with other people (something I've realised I ask many of my guests about!) and about the art of telling stories, what it’s like for your real life parents when you kill off your fictional parents and and what it’s like when your fictional parents get killed off by real life, as was so sadly the case at the end of 2016 with Carrie Fisher.
We also talked about Divorce, the show Sharon wrote for Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church which aired in 2016 and there was a great deal of mirth when it came to talking about sexy massages and what happens when physical contact with strangers borders on the inappropriate.
Thanks to Seamus Murphy Mitchel for production support and to Matt Lamont for convo editing on this episode. I am responsible for the jingles/music.
