We talk to the extraordinary writer and producer Akela Cooper.
She talks about combatting the loneliness of writing, particularly during a pandemic, the sage advice of her mother and the discipline of constantly working on her own projects even when in a room.
Akela talks honestly and openly about an abusive experience she faced, how she had the strength to walk away and the fear that she would be branded 'difficult' in a tough industry. 
She explains how she overcame that challenging time, what she has learned from it and the ways she wants to run her own show.
A deep, personal and powerful interview which ends with the ‘will you die’ approach to dealing with failure.
