It's me, your friend Busy Philipps! My creative partner Caissie St. Onge & I love making things that we believe people need & will love & we’ve had so many plans. We had plans to do a TV show that would shake up late night! And we think it kinda did! For six months. We adored our genius, scrappy creative team at “Busy Tonight” as much as we loved our audience, so when we broke the news that we’d been canceled, we vowed to get back up & make even bigger plans to invent a whole new way of doing things in the entertainment biz, to reunite our beautiful staff & change the game for everyone! An entertainment Utopia! And we were so close, then...the world changed. Now those plans are, at the very least, on hold. So, we've shifted gears, like everyone has had to, & with our friend, comedian & former “Busy Tonight” writer, Shantira Jackson, we're just doing our best, taking it slow & talking to fascinating friends about how *they* are doing *their* best. They’ll tell us all about those times in their lives when a setback actually led to the right thing. Maybe it was a job that didn't pan out, but opened the door to an even more perfect one, or maybe it's how they studied for years to do the thing they thought was their calling, only to fall into something else that felt like kismet. The thing is, we want to share those moments because right now EVERYBODY is having one of those moments. Maybe we'll all learn something life-changing or maybe we'll just have a conversation where we break down in tears, then laugh at ourselves for crying. Whatever happens, we can assure you, Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best!

    Busy, Shantira and Caissie are doing their best to manage their feelings about everything that's going on in Washington this week, but they are also here to discuss Gwyneth Paltrow's vagina-scented candle disaster, Ben Affleck's sad news and what they believe is the secret to J.

Another Corker!!!!

An emotional roller coaster this week with juicy eyes from heartfelt moments to girly giggles. This podcast is helping this Melbourne Mum through this VEEEEERRRRRRRY long lockdown. I love the erratic nature of the conversations and the mix of different personalities. ❤️❤️❤️

WONDERFUL theme song

I love the podcast, everything I loved about busy tonight smooshed into a podcast. Only negative is that I want to hear the full version of the theme song every episode. Kinda wish Busy sang it live every time but ya know I am definitely expecting way too much. Also so glad Shantira and Caissie are involved, as I love the vibe of you all together.
