Podcast: Character Sketch: Glen Mazzara on Writing the Anti-Hero

For this September 9 event, Glen Mazzara did something different and delivered his talk sans moderator. But don't expect some boring school-type lecture. The Anti-Hero--a central character that lacks conventional heroic characteristics such as idealism and morality--is such a prevalent trope in TV and film today that a study in its relevance is bound to be fascinating, not to mention the fact that Mazzara is an engaging personality with a strong point of view. He discusses the Anti-Hero's literary history as well as puts the trope within the context of gender, race and politics. Interesting stuff!
