They also touch on how their shows attempt to say something without alienating audiences in today’s social environment, what they’ve experienced in the industry as women, the current #metoo and #timesup era, equal pay, and whether – in regards to the infamous actions by Roseanne and her subsequent firing – you should be able to separate art from the artist, among other topics.
