It's Mo here with a 30-minute chat with 'Scandal' actor Jeff Perry, who plays Chief of Staff Cyrus Beene on the ABC drama.

If you'd like to hear more from Perry on what makes Cyrus tick and how "Scandal" operates, check out the separate panel discussion on the show that was recently held at the University of Chicago's Institute of Poliitcs. The IOP's TV Festival was held April 13, and other panel discussions included creators and actors from "Veep," "Alphas," "House of Cards" and "The West Wing"; check out videos of those discussions here

It's Mo here, and in this podcast, I spend just under an hour talking to Jill Soloway, who created the "dark comedy" "Transparent." The half-hour pilot premiered on Amazon recently and it stars Jeffrey Tambor, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker and Gaby Hoffmann. 

Soloway, who previously worked on shows like "Six Feet Under" and "United States of Tara," talked about what it was like making a TV show with the online company and how it was different and similar from making a pilot with a broadcast or cable network. We also talked about the inspiration for the project and the research she did on the characters, and of course there was a digression about "Girls."
