Carrie Brownstein and Meredith Hagner have a history together: not only did Carrie direct an episode of Search Party, but they starred together in the 2018 film, The Oath. “Friendships are really complex, and I think the show explores the grey area of those complexities well,” Meredith says of the often toxic dynamic of the friendships on the show. Host Bowen Yang facilitates a discussion that explores how our friendships can be born from a sense of pain, the characters’ shared search for meaning, and why Dory and the crew are at their best when they have to work together. And finally, if you were wondering what it was like for Carrie to direct Elliott’s opulent wedding scene…we get into that as well!
