For this episode, we’re doing something a little different. We’re hearing from Ryan Welch, one of the co-creators and writers of the Hulu comedy series “Ramy.” He was also born and raised in Alaska!

The series stars comedian Ramy Yousef, playing a fictional version of himself, the son of Egyptian immigrants, navigating life as a young adult in New Jersey.

ATMI senior producer Chloe Chobal spoke with Ryan Welch about working on the show, doing stand-up comedy in Anchorage, and breaking into the film and television industry.
