Ep. 291: All Dressed Up & Freudenfraude

Happier in Hollywood - December 8, 2022 - 22:35

Liz and Sarah discuss how they were all psyched up for a pitch meeting — and then it didn’t happen. The only consolation? Liz hadn’t paid for a blow out. In Take A Hike, they talk about the opposite of schadenfreude — freudenfraude. Especially now, when Hollywood is so chaotic, it’s helpful to take pleasure in others’ good fortune. Then Sarah revisits the Bomb she gave Elon Musk in Take Two. Finally, this week Liz and Sarah have a holiday Hollywood Hack: When someone asks for a gift, get them the exact thing they asked for.Get in touch on Twitter: @sarahmfain & @elizabethcraftGet in touch on Instagram: @Sfain & @LizCraftVisit our website: https://happierinhollywood.comJoin our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/HappierinHollywood/Happier in Hollywood is part of ‘The Onward Project,’ a family of podcasts brought together by Gretchen Rubin—all about how to make your life better.
