Every report card Carrie Gillaspie brought home as a child said “talks too much in class”. She even once had a teacher tell her she “couldn’t just socialize her way through life”.

Now, an award winning TV and radio personality, Carrie wakes up every day thanking that teacher for crassly talking down to her in front of the entire class, because it motivated her to make a career out of sharing her perspectives and opinions with the world (and they say holding a grudge isn’t good - HA!).

In each episode, Carrie meets you at the corner of entertaining and educational by bringing you the news of the week in pop culture and trending topics, the honest unfiltered thoughts of trying to be an adult in the world, and fun interviews with people doing cool things.
