286. Writers’ Rights

April 20th, 2020

This week, Emily and Ed discuss the question of authorship as it pertains to writers, particularly in terms of sketch comedy and in writers' rooms, and how easy it can be to erase the contributions of individual writers, especially in a system where they often aren't adequately compensated. They also talk about Fiona Apple's Fetch the Bolt Cutters a lot, because of cause they do.
