    Paula Poundstone On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson 5/ 20/ 20

    Wanna forget there's a pandemic? No one funnier or more fun than American Comedy and Cable Ace Award Winner, PAULA POUNDSTONE. The time flew... talking COVID, Trader Joes, being a Sanitation worker, dogs, Mo specifically, cats, all 12 of them, which she names, albeit with some effort, mask tests, nirvana eating, cutting back, losing weight - now, really? Yes, she is. Reading to her daughter, now, sleeping on the bus, then, bleaching her frequently touched surfaces, memory issues, stress, Sister Bertrille hair, that would be me, Silkwood showers, me again, missing talking in front of people and mingling with them afterward, busy-ing the time with her podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, prepping a game show, the idiot in chief, whom she believes is faking the hydroxychloroquine thing for profit, skills being learned in the time of corona, changing lightbulbs, making cameos ... being funny. Always being funny. For two hours I forgot. Everything. How I adore this human.

    Dee Wallace Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson 5/13/20

    Dee Wallace Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson 5/13/20

    Everything happens for a reason, as it's meant to. Tech challenges allowed actress, author, self-creation healer, Dee Wallace​, to see us, not vice versa. We pushed on. Perhaps it was for the best, as she suggested. No distraction getting lost in her magnificent blue eyes or gazing at her adorableness. We heard her words, powerful beyond imagination. Dee provided tools for all us to joyfully live beyond our dreams, with love. And it's simple.

    She channeled and told me my dream is close at hand... she's not said that to me before in all the years I've known her. She told Sharon Daniels Rothberg​ fairly specifically the success which awaits her... and told Carol Soskin how to move past a creative block, and Carole Garcia a personal one. Dee gave us all a tool to be happy and successful. inspiring, heart-filling, empowering. I feel like a gazillion bucks. And sweet viewers, Dee said it was one of the best sessions she's done. She loved it, too.

    To sign up for Dee's webinar on May 27th, or book a private session go to IAMDEEWALLACE.COM and check out her TED talks on YouTube for additional guidance. Loved this so much. Adore Dee!

    Cindy Begel On Game Changers WIth Vicki Abelson 4:29:20

    We were Live for the first successful COVID edition of Game Changers with a guest. And what a guest she was. Birthday Person, Writer, Producer, Cindy Begel​, whose credits include: Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy, Joanie Loves Chachi, The Jeffersons, Head of The Class, Alice, Married With Children, Mama's Family, The New Leave It To Beaver, The Days & Nights of Molly Dodd, The Martin Short Show and most recently the Muppet Babies on Disney Channel, and, Ed McMahon to my Johnny... was sensational. The birthday part was unknown bonus! If you've been watching the daily LIve you know how funny Cindy is, and boy did she live up to my hype. We got stories about Lucy, Carol Burnett, Robin Williams, Garry Marshall, Penny Marshall. Cindy Williams, Linda Lavin, and Bill Cosby, pre #METoo but #MeTooish. Talked Cindy into opening her BF's birthday gift on the air, gloves, fear, and all. And, of course, we talked the days COVID news and had a visit with her fab mom, Roberta. Spectacular fun in the time of corona.

    Thank you, Be.Live!

    Game Changers With Vicki Abelson Live In The Time Of Corona

    Game Changers With Vicki Abelson Live In The Time Of Corona

    My guest tonight was COVID-19. Game changer, if ever there was one. We talked about whether we think we'll forever be changed. Will we ever shake hands again, good question on the thread. Will we be cooking more moving forward? When will we feel safe to mingle? Gather? Go to a Live event? Kiss? Have... sex? When will we be in the mood? How's your mojo through this? Non-existent, or oddly stimulated? COVID-19 wasn't in the living room with me (spots through fingers), but we talked about the conflicting advice? What do we believe? Heed? What are we doing differently? What's caution and what's crazy? IS there crazy in this time of corona? We compared notes and made some sense of it together. Loved the conversation, your thoughts... and your good company. Thanks for shooting the shit with me.

    Game Changers With Vicki Abelson Live

    I was Live, shooting the shit. Stop! #ToiletPaperCrisis ~ Had a lovely time connecting and chatting (Ms. TalkAlot) with y'all about how we're navigating the new normal... which it turns out is no longer 98.6 for many of us. Shared strategies... Zoom meetings for recovery of all kinds, workshops, business, support- in fact, join us on Zoom every Tuesday at 11 am PT for the Women Who Write Support Group... you don't have to be a writer, and maybe not even a woman... checking with the consensus...hit me up for deets... what I know for sure is that Facebook, Facetime, Zoom, calls, texts, and emails are saving me, gracing me, and giving me a strong sense of love, support, connection, and community, whilst I sit alone in my pajamas. Shared some stories, y'all did too, through the thread... please continue to add additional ideas and suggestions. The Facebook isn't enabling me to throw Watch Parties anymore to continue these... guess I'll just keep doing 'em. Leaving the home studio set, so I'll see you the next time I put some damn make-up on. Nobody wants to see iffn' I don't. Just put myself down again, stopping that shit. Dee Wallace gave me great suggestions in a phone session this week on self-creation. I've put one of the big ones in action and immediately reaped benefit. As to the rest... on it! Here's to caring and loving ourselves (oxygen mask over our own face first) so we can love and care for everyone else. I'm here for youes. If I can be of service, please let me know, as long as it doesn't involve money, cooties, or leaving my kitchen. I'm learning how much that still allows. Wishing you perfect health, miracles, joy, laughter, love, connection, and ease in the days to come. Thank you for gracing my life with your time, attention, and good humor. #Grateful

I Love This

This show is infectiously informative. And I don’t just say that as the co-host. I just happen to have the best seat. Listen. Enjoy!

pea bear ,

Vicki always delivers!

Sometimes when you listen to a show, you can just feel the passion coming from the host. This is Vicki Abelson. She is an inspiration...oh, and also really really funny. Keep it up!

@tinyhuman ,

Vicki is Binge-Worthy!

I am such a huge fan of the long form interview and Vicki Abelson's conversations are some of the best I've heard. I binge-listened at work and was so impressed with the variety of guests. Michael Nesmith? Phil Rosenthal? Illeana Douglas? Vicki's show is a Who's Who of movie stars, celebrity chefs, musical stars and many more. I really enoy hearing each person describe their journey- their Road Taken- and each interview has many life lessons told with humor, love and humility. I look forward to many more episodes. Well done, Vicki!
