2 Degrees of Alie

A Tumblr Blog
My name is Alison Flierl (Alie for short). My goals remain the same as when I was five: to be a mermaid and a writer. I co-created the hit web series "TV Guide Letter Theater," have a new entertainment podcast (available on iTunes, called "2 Degrees of Alie") and I work in TV.

    I have a new podcast, where I interview amazing, talented people about their stories of breaking into Hollywood.

    My podcast is AVAILABLE ON iTunes! New episodes are released bi-monthly on Tuesdays. 

    If for some strange reason you don’t have iTunes, you can also find it here on Libsyn. (That site is still a work in progress.)

    AND you can LIKE our page on Facebook and get all the latest info. The podcast has been downloaded in 82 countries so far. Thanks to everyone for listening!
