The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Carolyn Aaron: Make a difference to one

The daughter of a 1950’s widowed working mother, Carolyn Aaron grew up in an unusual circumstances, some of which she’s used in her acting. She calls her civil rights activist mother an “inverse influence” on her character of Shirley Maisel, because her mother “would not have any relationship to Shirley whatsoever.”

Aaron has plenty of other projects besides acting, including her podcast Angst And Daisies, a call to political action, which she looks at as “I feel like everything I do… has to do with…how do we make things better?” For her, it comes down to taking a measured view and not trying to make huge changes but to “make a difference to one [person].”

So make a difference to your day by listening to Carolyn Aaron.
