It all started in 1979…Meredith Salenger felt seen by the sweet-but-feisty Carrie (aka “Frog”) in SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT. And Field’s starring role in NORMA RAE called to her long before she got involved in political fundraising and activism. An actor with a decades-long career, and now the co-host of the podcast ’Did You Get My Text?’ with husband Patton Oswald, she shares how she’s still inspired by these roles of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.
