Forty five years ago, the Mary Tyler Moore Show premiered. While that fact, in itself, merits a podcast of celebration, Advanced TV Herstory considers MTM to be a major chapter of study. Even a cursory look into the show’s development and award-winning run reveals that there’s a lot to learn from this show, its cast and crew.
This podcast takes a different approach to framing historical context. Namely, we’re going to hear from author and entertainment expert Jennifer Keishin Armstrong. In 2013, Simon and Schuster published Armstrong’s book about the writers and crew of the Mary Tyler Moore Show. It’s called Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted – and All the Brilliant Minds Who Made the Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic.
