S2E19 – Short Stories in Television (Annie Murphy, Squid Game, Matt LeBlanc & The Queen’s Gambit)

Show Notes

We regret to inform you, this week marks the final episode of our 2021 season. So, we thought we’d do something a little different. Over the past two years, we’ve come across several fascinating rejection stories that weren’t long enough for a full episode, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less packed with insight. Join us this week for ‘Short Stories in Television’ – the inspiring pint-sized rejection stories of Annie Murphy, Matt LeBlanc, Squid Game and The Queen’s Gambit.

Thanks for tuning in. We’ll see you soon for Season Three.
