  1. always great to listen to.looking forward to next one.great show and cast and every one front and behind scenes to thank you sharing.

    • Suggestion..please have Tony on to discuss the Shandy relationship with you both there.

  2. I loved Mary’s response to the question about “confident women in the same room” regarding Captain Raydor and Agent Soto As a 30-something woman in corporate America I absolutely agree. I feel that when myself and the women I work with are trying to make an important decision we are able to read the situation, take in all the information, and react appropriately. Although, we may not always agree with each other and we all definitely possess assertiveness; we respect each other and work as a team to make the more logical decision. We can look at each other in a meeting and give the look of “we need to discuss this later over the phone”. In my experience and more often than I like, men react abruptly and on an individual basis. Unfortunately, leaving us to clean up the mess.

  3. Thank you once again for doing these wonderful and entertaining podcasts. I am really enjoying them, and finding that many people have the same questions that I have. So it is interesting to hear the questions and your answers. Love your sign off by the way, especially the laugh at the end!! :)

  4. I totally agree about the Tony coming to talk Shandy . Please please make that happen ! In that vein ., I want to know if we’ll get a romantic kiss ?
    Not just a smooch !

  5. Do you ever worry that Sharon is portrayed as being too perfect? She never has a hair out of place or seems to struggle with doing the right thing. Wouldn’t you like her to show some more vulnerability or let her guard down once in awhile, especially in her personal life and with Andy?

  6. First let me start off by saying thank you for doing this podcast. I listen to 30 other podcasts during the week and this is the one I look forward to the most.

    We often see Sharon and Andy exchange small touches in episodes. More often than not, it’s their hands touching. Such as in the season 2 finale, the hand holding at Marianna’s (Alice) burial and when Andy moves in with Sharon while he recuperated. Were these touches written in the script or is something that you and Tony decided upon for your characters?

  7. I would like to comment/ask, for #WWSRD Podcast: (so awesome of you all to do this for us, BTW} :
    I found your answer in last week’s Podcast fascinating when you spoke about the complexity of playing Sharon, “verbally” while her mind is equally focused on formulating other hypothesis that are not being divulged just yet (subtext). It got me wondering if you’ve ever had a scene that you simply found you were unable to play, or play the way you wanted to, and if so what was the roadblock and/or result?

  8. As always loved listening to this. Mary is delightful to listen to . Her insights into Sharon give the character so much more depth. We can never thank Mary and those involved enough for taking their time to do this podcast every week!
    I do hope Mina will be hosting another podcast, she’s very good.

  9. I have a question for Mary. What was Sharon’s life like during her twenty year separation from Jack? Did Jack come and go? Did she have any sort of companionship at all during that time other than her children?

  10. I have found that most strong successful women usually have at least a few other women as friends who always have their backs. Talk about the friendship with Andrea and how you think they support each other professionally and personally. Would be fun to see them gab over a bottle of wine in some future episode.

  11. Katherine and I were sipping our cocktails while another spicy youthfull duo entered the bar.Why me? humdrum: I had unbiased concluded a Mischievous divorce process with a gal they had presented me 6 years before.

  12. What attain you reflect to say?satiate domme, I possess no Plan of ever defying you, I treasure the ground you flow on and will attain anything you say.The gentle romantic music toying in the background seems to area the mood unprejudiced proper.
