The Radio Show

“Actors do life best,” a guest once told me, “because they understand it’s all make-believe.” I couldn’t stop thinking about that. So I asked acting and life coach Jane Brody to join me on the show to talk about it. When we finished recording we realized we had another several hundred hours of conversation in us. That’s how Doing What Works with Anderson and Brody was born. We hope the program will inspire you to think more deeply about your life.

Jane Drake Brody, who won a prestigious Casting Society of America award for her work on the Coen Brothers’ film Fargo, also cast films like Groundhog Day, To Sir with Love II, and many of Oprah Winfrey’s projects such as The Women of Brewster Place. She recently retired as Associate Professor of Acting at the highly rated Theatre School, DePaul University. Her two books -- Acting, Archetype, and Neuroscience and The Actor’s Business Plan -- are considered essential reading for actors and directors everywhere. Jane maintains a busy coaching schedule where she’s transformed the lives of thousands of not only actors but “real people.”

I’m Maureen Anderson, and I’m excited about the next chapter of Doing What Works. Subscribe to the podcast, or check us out on a radio station near you.

And let us know what you think of the program. We’d love to hear from you! Thanks.
