Elizabeth McGovern with Gretchen Peters

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters sits down for a chat with Elizabeth McGovern, the iconic actress from Ordinary People, Once Upon a Time in America and Downton Abbey, who is a talented musician in her own right. The two friends, who connected just a few years ago via Twitter, discuss everything from their mutual commitment to telling women’s stories  (especially women over 30), the pluses and minuses of collaborating creatively with one's spouse, the downsides of early success, what songwriters can learn from watching Inside the Actors Studio, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Rosanne Cash's love of Downton Abbey, and much more.
