We talk to Simon Barry about his adventures in Hollywood and are joined by guest co-host and Maze Runner writer Grant Pierce Myers.
He talks about his first short film screening that no one turned up to, losing a girlfriend and gaining an agent the same day and how he came to Hollywood to be a screenwriter without a script.
Simon describes how he both felt he didn't belong, but also how  much he loved the Hollywood process - and the creative change he needed to make to be successful.
We talk dark days, hamster wheels and healthy delusions.
An honest and insightful discussion about making it Hollywood with plenty of mistakes made along the way.
