Episode 23: Nate Dern
Nate Dern (Funny or Die, Not Quite A Genius) talks about the tumultuous two months after graduating as a teacher for Teach for America. We also chat about his oopsies as Artistic Director for the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, the one major regret he had as a contestant on reality show Beauty and The Geek, and the multiple rejections he had to withstand from publishers and agents before his book was published. Nate also kindly allows me to read the list of 47 television shows he has been rejected from as a writer in my intro.
