Description

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.

Ep. 71: Take An Obligation Vacation
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.

Why do we ignore red flags? Prompted by Liz's recent read of the book Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou, she and Sarah discuss how and why people dismiss red flags in their professional and personal lives. Then they interview TV/comic book writer Ben Blacker about his podcast The Writers Panel and his upcoming comic book Hex Wives. Finally, Liz reveals a parent-friendly Hollywood Hack she recently discovered: work while your kid is falling asleep.
