Hosts

Sara Gorsky

Host & Producer

(she/her)

Sara is an award-winning actor, producer, feminist, web designer & digital marketer (yes, she DID design this website, thanks for asking!), crossfitter, nerd, and devoted cat mom living in Los Angeles. Before she was in LA she tromped around on Chicago stages and sets for about a decade, went to school central Illinois, and grew up in western suburbs of Chicago.

She didn’t grow up a feminist (though people who define feminism as just being loud might disagree), but after a couple decades kicking around the planet at dozens of jobs, hundreds of “networking events” and endless auditions and a few really good teachers, mentors and books, her fight against the patriarchy began and now she’s neck deep in that fight and going strong.
