Sarah gives a shout out to all the truck drivers who made her grueling RV drive to Kansas City and back better and safer.

The answer is absolutely not. This week’s Hollywood Hack comes from Everything Happens host, Kate Bowler: reassess the Covid-19 situation every two weeks (and don’t stress about it in between).

About The Show

Veteran TV writers Liz Craft and Sarah Fain demystify Hollywood by making career and personal struggles universal. Friends since high school and writing partners for 17 years, Liz and Sarah have survived and thrived in Tinseltown’s male-dominated entertainment industry, guided by blind optimism and a Midwestern work ethic. Along the way they've learned a lot about kicking ass, kissing ass, and office yoga.
