Emma is joined by the highly astute and talented writer Sarah Shachat (Wolf 359) to discuss one of their favorite shows, Battlestar Galactica. Sarah shares her insight on what it's like to write for a serialized Sci-fi show, and we talk about artistic integrity v. commercial accessibility, as it relates to both writing and wine. Listen to hear about religious tensions, diurnal shifts, and genetically modified grapes (and cylons). Plus: The Princess Bride Rules, music as main character, astrology, and laugh track/commentary by Zach Libresco.

WARNING: there are SPOILERS for Battlestar Galactica in this episode. If you are not familiar and want to remain so, listen with caution!

Sarah Shachat is an incomparably talented writer, whose work you can hear on the Audio Drama Wolf 359. Follow Sarah on Twitter @sarahshachat
