Work in Progress with Sophia Bush features frank, funny, personal, professional, and sometimes even political conversations with people who inspire Sophia about how they’ve gotten to where they are, and where they think they’re still going. These discussions stem from her "aha" moment of realizing you are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.

Carrie joins Sophia on the podcast to talk about having that "fight" in you to survive, the lens through which she views the world, and the genre-bending film she wrote and stars in, THE NOWHERE INN.
Fantastic Podcast- Underrated!
Interesting guests from all walks of life. Sophia Bush is candid, smart, worldly and introspective. Her voice is VERY soothing also :)
I cannot tell you how cathartic it is listening to this podcast. I love learning and discussing social issues but I can’t always have these conversations with people nor do I always know what questions to ask. I love that Sophia sits down with people from all walks of life to share their opinions and have deep conversations about meaningful things.
A walk on the moon?
Hi. I’m currently listening to your episode w Tony Goldwyn. And he’s describing the movie he worked on for years and eventually directed. When he said 1969, I truly thought it was going to be the movie “A Walk On The Moon” one of my all time favs! But he just mentioned Dustin Hoffman… so I guess I’m wrong 🤷🏻♀️ But loving this interview so much!!!♥️♥️🤷🏻♀️
