She often appears on international and national TV broadcasts, NPR, live radio shows — both terrestrial and satellite — as well as numerous podcasts to sound off on all things cinema and entertainment. Hear Mara every Monday night at 5 PM EST on SiriusXM Volume (Channel 106) for her hour-long reviews segment “Sound & Vision,” on the Debatable show co-hosted by Alan Light and Mark Goodman.

Additionally, she does speaking engagements about The Reel History of Modern Women in Cinema at Brooklyn Brainery and for other women’s organization around the country.
