Description

Lena Waithe, the trailblazing producer, actor, and Emmy-winning screenwriter of Netflix’s “Master of None” and creator of BET's "Twenties," trades stories with Tig about their early days as assistants in Hollywood, and how to be a great mentor. Tig and Lena offer advice to a retiree struggling with boredom, a long-distance girlfriend who wants to spice up her Zoom dates, and a woman about to become a grandmother who wants to be called something more hip than ‘grandma.’
