Liz and Sarah discuss why they’ve recently decided NOT to take every meeting. Sometimes they need to go deep instead of going wide. Then Sarah’s recent bout of pneumonia is a reminder that we all need to listen to our bodies. In The Mailroom, Liz and Sarah tackle a listener question about whether they ever feel like the “weak link” in their partnership. Short answer? Yes! This week Sarah and Liz have a dual parenting bomb — failing to set up summer play dates. And they give a hit to their fellow WGA writers for supporting one another through a tough time in the industry. Finally, this a Hollywood Hack: make plans immediately!
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.
