As work on Fantasy Island continues to become more and more intense, Liz and Sarah discuss their gratitude for the gift of other people’s productivity. Without it, they’d never sleep! In their new segment, A Day In The Life, they take listeners through a typical day while running a show. It starts with Sarah waking up at 5:00 AM to finish writing an introduction to a network Show & Tell, and it ends with a story session on Sarah’s patio after Violet falls asleep. In The Craft (& Fain), Liz and Sarah explain how “an idea is wrong until it’s right.” Finally, this week’s Hollywood Hack is a must in Puerto Rico: sun hats!
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.
