Her Voice Podcast

Carina Adly MacKenzie

Carina Adly MacKenzie, former journalist turned scribe for the television screen, stands firm in her integrity as a female pushing boundaries in our industry and in her ability to defend anything that has her name on it. As the creator and previous showrunner of the reboot, Roswell, New Mexico, she sits down with us to have her first public conversation since exiting the CW series. She shares why learning to pick your battles is a crucial skill in this political climate, how to “kill your darlings”, and the challenge in maintaining personal boundaries when you pour your heart and soul into writing a character. MacKenzie goes into further depth about how there were certain things she felt she just could not budge on, such as the importance of accurately portraying casual racism and always ensuring that her writers room was filled with as many diverse voices as possible to tell life as it is from the minds of those living it. She opens up about her own personal marginalization, acknowledges the inherent privilege in her ability to walk away, and why she doesn’t feel guilty about any of her pleasures. The only regret she does have about leaving Roswell is that any part of her positive experience may have been twisted into something negative, which is something she would never sign off on.
