Episode notes

Cheryl Eagan-Donovan is a graduate of Lesley University's MFA in Creative Writing program, where she also teaches screenwriting. Her first documentary film, All Kindsa Girls, screened in London, Toronto and throughout the U.S. and was short-listed for the PBS series POV.

Her latest documentary, Nothing Truer than Truth, premiered in 2018 and posits that the A-list playboy Edward de Vere was the real Shakespeare. Let's just say, it's an idea that is not without controversy, and it's probably no coincidence that Eagan-Donovan's company is called Controversy Films.

Lesley Communications Specialist Georgia Sparling interviews her.
