Hosts Mary and Blake discuss all things with Outlander writer and Executive Producer, Ira Steven Behr. In this episode you’ll learn all about: Ira not knowing if he could write for 18th century Scotland, the duties of an executive producer and being a consigliere to Ron Moore, his surprising expertise for Outlander, writing The Garrison Commander as a one act play, slowly becoming the “Black Jack Guy”, why GETTING to Wentworth really excited him, his writing process, Ira’s fascinating answer to those who thought the show went too far, and why the controversial scenes were necessary to the story, the most poignant moment in the show, the one time Ron blinked, finding balance and the idea of love conquering all in Outlander, and why Blake fangirls a little more than he wanted to.
