Episode Four: Sara Benincasa, From Agoraphobia to ABC Pilot

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.

Making it as a writer means dealing with a lot of rejection – and learning how to persevere through pretty tough times. Novelist and memoirist Sara Benincasa (Agorafabulous, DC Trip) opens up about how her struggles with mental illness gave her the resiliency she needed for a career in writing, and shares the best advice she ever got from Diablo Cody.
