DS: Not the writing staff, but definitely Jane. She has been a supporter of my writing career right from the get-go. She read the first script I ever wrote and she loved it and told me I was a real writer and that I needed to keep doing it. She is one of the first people I give a script to when I'm done with it, just to get her opinion. How lucky am I to have Jane Espenson as friend so that I can give her my scripts?
TWoP: Do you keep in touch with Adam Busch or Tom Lenk? You three are linked in my mind from the Buffy days. Do you hang out?
DS: [Laughs] Adam Busch is another one of my best friends. I see Tom Lenk all of the time. We all live about three blocks from each other.
TWoP: Good, that keeps the illusion preserved in my mind, where you sit around and play Guitar Hero or something and try to take over the world.
DS: Absolutely. We sometimes will go out together and have a bite to eat and people that know the show enjoy it.
TWoP: Anything else coming up that we should be aware of?
DS: Not really. There is so much Recount madness right now.
TWoP: Good timing to release it in the middle of an election year.
DS: I know. The amount of press we've gotten... Hillary Clinton talked about it yesterday in her speech. She talked about the movie as an example of why Florida should be counted for her. It has been this crazy ride and I feel like I'm on a roller coaster and we'll see when it finally stops.
TWoP: Great. I wish you the best of luck with everything. Even though your film has gotten me all riled up again. I thought I'd gotten over it.
DS: Yeah, this film has definitely opened up some old wounds for people, but I think it is a healthy thing. I think we need to examine this so hopefully it will never happen again.
