remembers her best worst date well. It climaxed in the middle of the night, with the NYPD
searching her bag in a subway, and the officers not sure whether to believe her explanation of what they found inside.
What happened next is the focus of our latest episode of “Shoot This Now” podcast, in which Matt Donnelly
and I talk about stories we think should be made into movies. You can listen on Apple
or right here, right now:
The night had started romantically enough — Welsh, who was 20, performed in Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale” with an actor she had a serious crush on. Things got better from there… then much better… then suddenly not so good. Which brings us to that scene in the New York City subway, and officers who weren’t sure whether to trust her.
Welsh’s story has been the subject of wonderful segments on the Risk! podcast and This American Life. We highly recommend both. It’s a story of cops, romance and a stigma that shouldn’t be a stigma. We’ll leave it at that.
Also this episode: We play a rousing game of “Know Your Hemsworths,” and debate the career of Anne Hathaway
