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 friends, 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!

    Sh*t Talking!

    Sh*t Talking!

    Well, Busy and Caissie took one week off for the holiday and all hell broke loose. This week, they debate their very complicated feelings about our Democracy, then, as a treat, they discuss a celebrity rumor that’s exploded all over the place and theorize how, if it was true (and they’re not saying it is) and it happened to them, how *they* would have handled it.

    The Holly Jolly Squirrel

    The Holly Jolly Squirrel

    This week has a lot of big themes and threads running through it. Find out what BFF Michelle Williams was urgently calling Busy about at the start of the podcast. And speaking of celebrity friends who met when they were teens, Caissie recaps the Brats documentary and why it might be falling kind of flat for some Gen X Brat Pack fans, which leads to talk about the Rat Pack. And speaking of rodents, Caissie gets to reveal to Busy, live on the pod, that Vulture called their emergency holiday decor preparedness segment with Tina Fey on Busy This Week the second best moment on late night last week! Further, the Vickerman Holly Jolly Squirrel that Tina was enchanted with and took home with her is now SOLD OUT on QVC. Which reinforces the point Tina was trying to make while also bringing us full circle back to why Michelle was calling to begin with.

Love this podcast!

I love Busy and Caissie together so much! This podcast is the highlight of my week!

ms. boyski ,

Thank you, Busy & Caissie.

The discussion about the Democrats failure and the dilemma of Biden was really helpful for me. I’ve been unable to think, frozen with fear and anger. You unstuck me. Thank you. I love how brave you are in sharing your selves. ❌⭕️

Omgcln ,

Look forward to new episodes every week

Love this podcast! Busy and Caissie are an incredible pair and I love keeping up with them and their big feelings.
