Ep. 210: Cussing and Discussing

Happier in Hollywood - May 20, 2021 - 22:25

Liz and Sarah share a listener’s suggestion about how to frame potentially difficult work conversations so that they stay light-hearted and productive — let everyone know at the outset that there will be plenty of “cussing and discussing.” In Hits & Bombs, they give a big hit to the Fantasy Island hair and makeup team, who gave up their lunch hour to make Liz and Sarah look good for a behind-the-scenes interview. They also give themselves a bomb for too much bitching and complaining! Clearly, Liz and Sarah need to heed their own advice — “don’t treat a gift like a burden.” This week’s Hollywood Hack will add humor to your work text chains — use gifs! Finally, after a year of lockdown, Celebrity Sightings are back! Liz and Sarah are seeing celebrities all over the resort in Puerto Rico — of course these celebrities do happen to be working on Fantasy Island!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.

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.
