Sharon Stiller, Partner and Director of the Employment Law Practice at Abrams Fensterman, LLP, was a recent guest on the WXXI News podcast “Connections with Evan Dawson,” where she joined a discussion on Hasan Minhaj’s admission of fictionalizing parts of his comedy act.
In the podcast, Stiller shared insights into the legal and ethical considerations of public figures like Minhaj embellishing stories that could defame individuals. The conversation extended to perspectives on creative freedom versus the responsibility toward truth, particularly in narratives involving real people or events.
The podcast was hosted by Evan Dawson, and included the following guests:
- Aamir Arshad, comedian and host of “Only the Important Things” on WITR
- Chris Thompson, comedian, writer, engineer, and activist
- Peter Gregory, attorney with McConville Considine Cooman & Morin
