We're very proud to present our hour-long sit-down with the intelligent, sweet, and remarkable Alexa Nisenson. We had a lot of excellent fan questions prepared, with some very handy and complimentary questions provided by our Supporter-Backed audience members. We go through both the sweet and sour of Alexa's journey through #TWDUniverse and we all come out of it stronger for having done it.
Please, do not miss out on the opportunity to join us in the audience for our next interview! ...and, failing that, the ability to download the uncut version of this interview. We went on a few tangents (our Friends conversation), as well as some funny moments we simply had to edit out!
