With development season at peak intensity, Liz and Sarah are putting their noses to the grindstone. What does that mean? They’re often giving up their precious nights and weekends—and accepting that they have to “just say no” to many social functions. Then in Take A Hike, Liz and Sarah talk about why there’s one activity they’re NOT giving up: their new monthly Mahjong game. They also answer a Mailbag question about how many scripts a writer should have under her belt before she makes the big move to Los Angeles. And this week’s Hollywood Hack will improve any presentation: if someone asks if you want to use a mic, the answer is ALWAYS yes.
A podcast about how to be happier, healthier, saner, more creative, more successful, and more productive in a back-biting, superficial, chaotic, unpredictable, and fundamentally insane world.
ABOUT HAPPIER IN HOLLYWOOD
Hosted by veteran television writers/producers/showrunners Liz Craft and Sarah Fain, who’ve been friends since high school and writing partners for 17 years, Happier in Hollywood lives at the intersection of friendship and work.
Whether you live in Hollywood, Dollywood, or somewhere in between, Liz and Sarah demystify Tinseltown by making career and personal struggles universal. Guided by blind optimism and a Midwestern work ethic, Liz and Sarah have survived and thrived in Hollywood’s male-dominated entertainment industry. Along the way they’ve learned a lot about kicking ass, kissing ass, and office yoga.
Happier in Hollywood is part of Gretchen Rubin’s The Onward Project , a family of podcasts full of concrete, actionable ideas for how you can make your life happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative.
