This is the official Patreon page for the acclaimed podcast, Hilliard Guess' Screenwriters' Rant Room. We've been dropping info-blasts for over 200 weeks! Yeah, we recently dropped our 200th episode and wouldn't continue doing this unless we had an awesome audience.

Hilliard, Lisa, and Chris are writers (and directors and producers) of TV and film. We all came to Los Angeles from different backgrounds and different dreams, but with one unifying goal -- to tell better stories in film and TV. To tell the stories that aren't being told, but must be told.

Hilliard Guess' Screenwriters' Rant Room is a weekly podcast that discusses film, TV, culture, and entertainment... but its main focus is writing and storytelling.

The show features writers, producers, showrunners, actors, development executives, literary managers, and directors working in the business as well as those on the verge of their big break. 

We put out a podcast each week. The release date is Monday, regardless. Even though we're starting on the road to episode 300, we're still going strong and love giving the listeners so much game about Hollywood and how to navigate this unruly beast.

As the Rant Room community continues to grow, we'll have exciting interactive features for our listeners. Those may include appearing on the show, getting Lisa, Hilliard, and Chris to read & give one-on-one feedback on a feature or TV pilot, get some dope merchandise (mugs, t-shirts) that's in the works, plus other awesome things we can't tell you about just yet.

Want to ask a question?  Want feedback on your log line? We've got a reward for that. Want to visit Los Angeles and be on the podcast? Well, there's a tier for those things too.

Thank you for helping us continue to make the Screenwriters' Rant Room happen!
