“Bad to the Bone” veteran blues/rocker George Thorogood joins Nancy to discuss the Marla Thorogood Memorial Fund for Ovarian Cancer Research, founded to honor his wife Marla who died of ovarian cancer in 2019 (1:25), how fans can support this important initiative during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and why taking charge of your health and reminding family and friends to do the same is so important. George also discusses the impact of media and music as we deal with medical challenges, and why he’s more of a homebody than a “bad boy”.

Plus, Nancy reviews an opportunity for screenwriters to submit their original content. The Disability List, an initiative created by The Black List in partnership with The Media Access Awards, Easterseals, and the Writers Guild of America Writers with Disabilities Committee seeks to highlight the very best unproduced scripts featuring at least one lead character with a disability. Last year’s winning scripts increased awareness of many disabilities including cerebral palsy, deafness, and bipolar disorder (21:12). This year’s deadline is September 18, 2020.
