Liz and Sarah ask listeners what kind of merch they’d like for the holiday season. Then they discuss a recent article about how we’ve all depleted our “surge capacity” during the pandemic. How can we recharge? Then they follow up on Mailroom questions. Listeners wrote in with advice for a young woman struggling with whether or not to talk to her boss about her depression. They also advise a mom of three who’s looking to break into TV. And they hear from a listener who plays HIH for her ewes in New Zealand. This week’s Hollywood Hack comes from friend of the pod, Michael Melcher: maintain a strong smile at the end of video calls.
