Ep. 71: Take An Obligation Vacation

Happier in Hollywood - September 20, 2018 - 23:23

Sparked by Roxane Gay's Nemesis Twitter, Liz and Sarah discuss nemeses and how they can serve as motivation. Then they talk about Sarah's recent "obligation vacation" and the many obligations we could all use a vacation from— order a meal service for a week so you don't have to cook, take a break from cleaning your house, or ignore the mail for a few days. Finally, Liz and Sarah reveal this week's Oprah-approved Hollywood Hack: the Abosu cold brew coffee maker.

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.
