135: Mara Wilson, Acting Cults And Isolation Tanks

Description

We are joined this week by writer and actress Mara Wilson to discuss how acting classes can function like cults and why. Mara reveals her personal Alison Mack story and talks about how we can protect child actors on sets. Then she tells us about her personal isolation tank experience and we try to figure out hacks for making isolation tank like experiences at home. At the end of the episode we have a very bittersweet important announcement about the show.
