Podcast: Rachel Bloom's Journey From YouTube Hit To Golden Globe Winner

On this week's podcast, we're joined by my old friend Rachel Bloom, who tells us what it's like to star in a TV show and win a friggin' Golden Globe. Bloom writes, produces and stars in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, one of the funniest shows on US television. (Seriously.) Today on Kotaku Splitscreen, she talks about how she pulled it off. We also discuss what it's like to navigate the shifty waters of Hollywood, how she got a musical comedy on television and whether it's more difficult to run a TV show or play Rollercoaster Tycoon.

    "I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal. ... I have many leather-bound YouTube Videos and my apartment smells of rich mahogany" might've been a better way to plug Rachel Bloom.

    Oh man, that YT vid is fantastic. I may be just a dude, but having spent years hanging out with lady friends while they get ready to go out on the town.. Yup. Oh man, laughed so hard.
