“The way I recognize a great theme is I feel something when you say it. If I’m intellectually That’s cool, we’re not there yet.”
—Meg LeFauve
The Screenwriting Life, ”Turning Ideas Into Screenplays”

My plan in the coming weeks is to actually walk you though my experience of starting a podcast. But today I’m going shine a light on the podcast The Screenwriting Life co-hosted by screenwriters Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Lorien McKenna (who’s worked in the story department at Pixar).

They launched the podcast last year and have done interviews with Ed Soloman (Men in Black), Anne Lamott (Bird by Bird), Mike Jones (SOUL) and others. And here’s a sample of some the titles and topics they’ve covered so far.

“Turning Ideas Into Screenplays”

“Uncover the Theme of Your Screenplay”

“Mastering Structure in Your Screenplay (Parts 1 & II)”

“Enduring the Roller Coaster of Rejection”

”Voice: What It Is and How to Find It”

There are so many free resources out there for screenwriters that just weren’t available 20 or 30 years ago—or even 10 years ago.

And just to show the different directions that screenwriters are pursing in new media, LeFauve recently worked on the web series Breakroom USA.

P.S. If you have a podcast and would be interested in letting me pick your brain for 20 minutes (Libsyn, Buzzsprout, or Podbean?), or you’ve enjoyed this blog and would be interested in telling me what you’d like to hear in a podcast, shoot me an email at info@scottwsmith.com.
