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 visits the Hancock Park-ish apartment of Elizabeth Liang, the writer and sole cast member of the show "Alien Citizen: An Earth Odyssey," about her usual upbringing as a "third culture kid," growing up all over the world, from Guatemala to Costa Rica to Panama to Connecticut to Morocco to Egypt. She talks about the essay the led to the show, the unique pressures of being the only cast member, filming the show for a DVD, what her family thinks of the show, taking on the show on the road to places like Iceland, Spain and South Africa. She also talks about the smells that take her back to each country, feeling most at home in an airport, why so many third culture kids become actors and how trippy it was when Facebook came along. Other topics include: the joys of Knots Landing, playing a staffer on The West Wing, her unrequited devotion to Sylvester Stallone, her favorite teacher and why she says she was happiest in Panama.
