On today's episode I talk to writer and actor Azie Dungey. Azie grew up in Philly and the DC area. After graduating as a drama major from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, she performed the role of a slave as part of an ongoing historical reenactment of life at George Washington's Mount Vernon plantation in Virginia. This was the basis for her acclaimed webseries Ask a Slave. In 2015, Azie was hired as a writer on the Tina Fey Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Stay tuned for future episodes with Mitski, Roy Wood Jr., Josie Long, Baron Vaughn and a special 300th episode coming up soon!
