We’re joined by three guests for our discussion of "No Exit." Former Senator Tom Daschle tells us about what it was like getting sent anthrax in the mail; Wilson Cruz tells us about playing Jack Sosa for his two episodes on The West Wing; and Eli Attie tells us about the writing of the episode, specifically the Will and Toby scenes, which he co-wrote with Peter Noah. But first, a poem that this episode inspired Hrishi to write:
Cried, "What do we do?
We're all stuck here in a cell!"
So Samuel Beckett
Got totally nekkid.
"Let's go!" he started to yell.
But Jean-Paul Sartre
Just let out a fartre
And said, "Other people are hell."
We're joined by Richard Schiff to discuss this episode, his television directing debut! Hear what it was like for him to step behind the camera for this story about power and labor and international trade.
