We talk to legendary writer, show creator and exec producer Glen Mazzara.
He talks about crisis training in the entertainment industry, how he still suffers from imposter syndrome and the time a knife fight broke out on the Shield when prostitutes mixed with actresses playing prostitutes.
Glen told us about facing such a serious rejection that he couldn't get out of bed for three weeks and it took a year, and a commencement speech at NYU, to get over it.
We discuss the need to provide better training for leaders, why he mentors and how he wishes he had worked on more of his own projects and ideas.
An extraordinary deep dive into the world of rejection, crisis and adversity told with a clarity and thoughtfulness that makes this episode a must-listen masterclass.
