"I spend a lot of time thinking about who a person is. Who they are at their core, at work, with their girlfriends, walking down the street, when they're crying in bed by themselves, or who they are in the shower. I take a lot of time to think about that when I develop characters." —Rahima Rice
In this episode, we discuss empathy and diversity with Rahima Rice. Rahima is an award-winning playwright from DC, and she founded The 4208 Group to cultivate the development of writers.
