Maya The Bee is beloved children's character in Germany and I recently chatted to Fin Edquist, the Australian writer of Maya's latest big screen adventure, The Honey Games.

We talk about Fin's career, how he came to write this German character and how writing a movie for a predominantly German audience differs to writing for Australian audiences.

 

Maya The Bee: The Honey Games opens Thursday 26 July at all major cinema chains and is a great watch if you have kids.

This episode is part 1 of 2 with Joe Murphy, writer on the US hit show Younger.

In this ep, Joe talks about how he went from a small country town near Albury-Wodonga, Tangambalanga, to Deal Or No Deal and eventually on to Younger.  We also talk about the difference between writer's rooms here and in the US, what he had to do as an assistant and how having a support group of writers really helped him hone his scripts and propel his career.

If you're a fan of Younger and/or inspired by stories of Aussie's making it overseas, you won't want to miss this episode!
