via Variety, Emma is probably somewhere nearby
Believe it or not after you graduate Kenyon, you’re still stuck in your human form and expected to sustain life for at least a few more years. I know, the harsh reality of the situation can seem bleak and excruciatingly overwhelming at times. But then there are those stories you’ll hear of people in far off lands living in towns with traffic lights and running water actually doing something with themselves. In this edition of Post-Grad Might Be Okay, I spoke with Emma Specter ’15. As a former Thrill editor herself, Emma has been a champion of wit, truth, and heart. She is also currently living the dream.
Emma worked on the Amazon TV series, Good Girls Revolt. The show is set in New York in the late 1960s, when a cultural revolution was sweeping through the free world. One place that was not quick to change with the times was newsrooms. Inspired by real events, “Good Girls Revolt” follows Patti Robinson and her fellow female researchers at News of the Week, who decide to ask for equal treatment. Their quest initiates an upheaval that impacts romantic relationships, careers and friendships, and propels Patti and her friends into unfamiliar territory that they never dreamed of. (Thank you, Google) I personally inhaled the show almost instantly. It fills a hole in current television that is so satisfying to witness it’s almost cathartic. It’s equal doses of fascinating and empowering send chills down my spine, and it deserves all the praise out there.
We quite literally asked Emma to tell us everything, and she graciously obliged. Emma’s return to The Thrill is enthusiastically welcomed. Read more about her experiences below.
