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!
To What End???
This week has felt like a year and Busy and Caissie are talking through the pain, remembering Louie Anderson and others who left us too soon this week. TW: suicide. The women go extremely deep on how certain media platforms work and why they believe misinformation is allowed to go unchecked. They talk about social media, trolls, and gaslighting and grooming in light of a Medium piece that went viral this week. They discuss the book, “Conflict is Not Abuse” which neither of them has read, but everyone was talking about online. And Busy shares that at which she is doing her best, while Caissie amends a past “best” that she thinks may work better for her than the original way she tried it.

Sick Cricks :(
This week, Busy’s got a sick co-worker & a sick kid & one less set of sheets. But she’s doing her best! Even when it’s cold outside, Busy’s just “Dolly Parton-ing It!” She also shares something at which she hasn’t been doing her best. Meanwhile, Caissie is thinking a lot about the actual meaning of self-care AND she tells the Nicolas Cage story she thought she already told, but promised to tell if she had not!

Gloria Calderón Kellett
This week, Busy is not feeling her best & is on a bit of bed rest. Caissie had a truly terrible bad day that she is still not quite over, clearly. And regarding the broken Snowbaby saga, a possible solution has hit a bit of a snafu. Then, Busy’s former LMU classmate & the showrunner of “One Day at a Time,” Gloria Calderón Kellett stops by to talk about her new project “With Love” on Amazon, and what it was like working with Busy’s kid, Birdie, on the show! Then, Glo blows everyones’ minds by sharing how important it can be to reframe the way you’re thinking about things. It might blow your mind too!

I love you!
I love hearing you, you guys are the best I can relate on a lot of things that you say as a mom as a friend or as a coworker you have so much in this podcast is amazing ❤️🙏🏼
The realest show I listen to
I love this podcast. I love the length, format, and content. Busy and Caissie are genuine, vulnerable, and so smart.
This podcast is the highlight of my mid-work week. I feel like I am sitting down with friends. And I often learn things that I’m not expecting. The ONLY thing I am hoping they might change is the format of the ads— it feels like there are more and more ads (which is good for the pod), but they are unpredictable in length, and you never know when they are going to pop up. It would be amazing if they came at a more predictable cadence and lasted for a set amount of time (like armchair expert).
