The Mikhaila Peterson Podcast

Feb 10, 2021

Gregg Hurwitz is an American novelist, scriptwriter, and producer. He’s just released his newest book in Mikhaila’s favorite thriller series, Orphan X: Prodigal Son. He has also played a significant role in helping the Democratic Party in the US work on their storytelling and narrative through commercials and political ads.

Mikhaila Peterson and Gregg Hurwitz discuss Gregg’s interactions in politics with the democratic party and different groups all over America. They also get more into Gregg’s writing with his Orphan X series, dissecting the characters and how Gregg approaches writing fiction. 

They talk about Gregg’s time writing other books, comics, and some of his shared histories with the Peterson family.
