Episode notes

Television writer and producer Brigitte Muñoz-Liebowitz really struggled to find a character that she saw herself in — a Latinx, first-generation American, striving to do her best as a woman in a male-dominated world. But when she found Amy Santiago (played on BROOKLYN NINE-NINE by Melissa Fumero), Brig REALLY found her — she got hired to write on BROOKLYN NINE-NINE not long after the show began, and it kickstarted her career writing for TV comedies (People of Earth, Love Life, One Day at a Time, Gordita Chronicles).

Then, Jordan has one quick thing about a heatwave rewatch of 1983’s KRULL.

About the show

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
