What if—instead of waiting on the right romantic relationship—two best friends had a baby together? This week we chat with real-life and
onscreen best friends Miranda Kent and Danielle Weeks, the creators and costars of a new web series about just that: Baby Love
We loved hearing about Miranda and Danielle’s creative project, but we gotta admit: it was their incredible relationship that really blew us away. They met when they were fourteen, y’all...and they’ve been BFFs and collaborators ever since.
Our biggest hurdle always is when we get together, we just want to talk. We don’t necessarily go straight to the work. So, a lot of times, we have to set a timer, we have to be really diligent.
—Miranda Kent, Baby Love co-creator and costar
We chat about:
- How to be successful in creative collaborations with a friend (we definitely took notes)
- Why getting through the difficult moments makes a creative partnership (and friendship!) better
- How fertility fears, a very British breakup, and true friendship led to Baby Love
- Our value as women—whether pursuing career, motherhood, both, or...neither
- Aging in Hollywood (and what happens when you decide you won’t just fade away)
- Trans women are women, TERFs are toxic, and why we need to keep unlearning gender binaries
- How we manage being besties who collaborate on projects—like this podcast and our new community—while also running other companies (whew)
- Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius, Fleabag is a work of art, and if it’s not clear already: we fucking love women creating, writing, starring, and generally owning shit onscreen
