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 & Caissie are doing their best this week, but they're also owning up to moments where they did not do their best in the past, making disastrous decisions with disastrous results. And, Busy thinks there might be something supernatural going on with her dog, Gina? Then, the women throw it to themselves, interviewing each other, the day after the inauguration, where they revel in revealing who they thought had the best coats and who hit some flat notes. Plus a very personal Hollywood break, with a hot side of celebrity social media goss!

Customer ReviewsSee All
Just love. I just love this podcast
It’s everything I needed in 2020. It’s fun, it makes me laugh and it makes me feel like I have friends in my house with me which lets me honest I haven’t had since March 2020.
The podcast is authentic and thought provoking. I constantly find myself saying thank goodness someone is saying this. In one of the last episodes the girls were saying well hopefully someone is listening- well this (black) Small town Canadian mom is.
Shantira’s Laugh Makes Me Happy!
Shantira’s laughter makes me feel good...same goes for Busy and Caissie. I need laughter! And I laugh out loud every time I listen to an episode...that’s no small feat on the hosts part to make that happen. Comforting and thought-provoking pod too! Thank-you!!!
Some interesting guests and interesting conversation
However the rambling and frequent ads are annoying and the use of the word “like” is incessant. Shantira is the worst offender-it’s literally every second word. Important points are often lost because it is so incredibly distracting.
