DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis welcomes screenwriter Bennett Yellin ("Dumb & Dumber") to his living room to discuss Bennett's many adventures in the screen trade, from meeting his frequent collaborator Peter Farrelly in college, getting their first script into the red hot hands of Eddie Murphy, the process when writing with the Farrelly brothers, bringing the gang back together for "Dumb and Dumber To," getting inspiration from "The Andy Griffith Show" and typing while driving. He also talks about the relationship and addiction that nearly did him in, getting sober, being super hungover in "The Donny and Marie" studios in Utah and getting a do-ever. Other topics include: fostering resilience, the writer he wrote a fan letter to and the review his mother keeps on her refrigerator.
