Episode Five: The Many Influences of Jenny Lumet

The BinderCast is the only podcast exclusively devoted to women and gender non-conforming writers and their careers. In each episode, co-hosts Lux Alptraum and Leigh Stein tackle the essential questions of making it as a writer. Produced by Jennifer Lai.

How do our families shape our careers? What role do mentors play in helping us get ahead? Award winning screenwriter Jenny Lumet (Rachel Getting Married) shares how being the daughter of Hollywood royalty helped her get places that women of color don’t normally go – and how she persuaded Jonathan Demme to direct her first film.
