Book Interviews: 29 and Counting

Updated: Jan 6, 2020

In which we see just how far we've come...and how much further we still have to go.

Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday that I was nervously hitting "send" on my first email to My So-Called Life executive producer Marshall Herskovitz requesting an interview. (In fact, that was in June2018.) Since then, I've been privileged to speak with nearly 30 people involved in the production so far, and hope to interview many more in 2020.

On the eve of a brand new year, I thought this would be a good time to list those generous souls here:
