Ep. 228: Resetting, Reframing, & The Finale
Liz and Sarah reveal what’s most pressing in their work psyches this week — nothing! As Season One of Fantasy Island comes to an end, they are making a conscious effort to take a mental break from the show. In Take Two, they revisit their post Puerto Rico reset plans. Did Sarah find good hiking trails in Ojai? Has Liz stopped eating after 10PM? Have they both managed to focus on their friendship? Then, in Take A Hike, Sarah discusses her recent decision to reframe certain big expenses — an insight which led Liz to feel better about the money she’s spending on making a will. Liz and Sarah also go Behind The Episode, discussing the Fantasy Island season finale, “Dia De Los Vivos,” which was written by Liz’s husband, Adam Fierro, and guest-stars the always fabulous Leslie Jordan. Finally, this week’s Hollywood Hack makes a great business gift, especially for somebody who spends a lot of time on sets: the Kinetic Sling Crossbody Bag from Athleta.Join our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/HappierinHollywood/Get in touch on Twitter: @sarahmfain & @elizabethcraftGet in touch on Instagram: @Sfain & @LizCraftVisit our website: https://happierinhollywood.comHappier 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.

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.
