Megan Cameron works as a Line Producer for Unscripted Television in Vancouver, Canada. 

In this episode, Megan explains what she feels is the big difference between unscripted and Reality TV, and why her job preferences tend to side with the former. She talks about her slow rise into TV Production, and how barely anyone spoke to her at her first major TV job. Now in a career she loves, Megan discusses sexual harassment on set, and how the unscripted genre she works in may have less support than others. 

We chat about musical theatre and the importance of knowing how to sing, abduction, and how, when I was 5-years-old, I thought singer Neil Diamond was a mass murderer (it’s funnier than it writes).
