Sara sits down with writer-director Heather Fink (who is also an actress, comedian, and sound professional for film and TV - she does it all!) to talk about growing up in New Jersey as the daughter of a Jewish American scientist father and a Dutch immigrant construction boss mother. These friends of many years (12? 13?) discuss growing up in the shadow of two cities (NYC and Philly), being a woman in a man-dominated industry, and the challenge of living a creative life with multiple gigs far away from one's family. Heather is the daughter of a stroke survivor, and she talks a bit about that as well. Thank you so much to the Patreon famiglia helping keep this show alive! Patreon.com/SaraBenincasa
