As the school year begins, Liz and Sarah take a cue from Violet’s first day at her new school: Expect the worst, prepare for the best. It’s the opposite of the conventional wisdom, but it works! Then they answer a question from a listener who wants to know if their motto—It’s a fun job, and we enjoy it—still applies when it’s NOT a fun job. The answer? Yes! Next, they go behind the scenes on this week’s Fantasy Island episode, “Twice in a Lifetime.” Finally, they share a Hollywood Hack inspired by their fellow TV writer Bill Krebs: Give someone a Cameo.
