Nerdist Writers Panel #1: Damon Lindelof, Jane Espenson, Erin Levy & Drew Z. Greenberg. This is a podcast, hosted by Ben Blacker in front of an audience at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles.

Espenson has written for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse. Greenberg has written for BtVS and Firefly.

Was here for this. It was really fantastic, and I would advise any aspiring writers to listen. A bunch of really cool people saying really smart things about television writing.
Espenson has written for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse.

Parenthetically, yesterday on Twitter I was trying to determine which people have worked on at least four of the five official Mutant Enemy productions. I started with Shawna Trpcic, then discovered Lisa Lassek and Jane Espenson also had worked on four. I haven't stumbled upon any others yet.

This kept me up for an extra hour the other night and I kept forgetting to link it here. It's really fantastic and absolutely worth a listen.
This is really something special, full of information which would be really valuable for any aspiring writer. I listened to about half last night, but it got too late... so now I'm listening to the end this morning.
Thanks. I just subscribed on iTunes.

This is from the March 27, 2011, panel. That means roughly episode 10 will be the panel that includes Buffy writer/director/producer and Angel writer and Dr. Horrible actor (also of Pushing Daisies) Doug Petrie from May 29, 2011 (as reported here).
And not too long after that should be Mr. Tim Minear. These panels have been full of Whedonesque folks.
Great listen :).
