    Dyan Cannon

    Dyan Cannon

    Hollywood icon Dyan Cannon and I get to know each other and -- it's a gas. (Not sure why I'm using this expression because I never do, but something about it feels right.)
    From her home in California, we get on a call. And mosey around the topics of love, approval, Cary Grant (Dyan's ex-husband), Ally McBeal, her Oscar nomination, directing, kids, Malibu Colony, growing as women, Hollywood, fame, family, housekeepers and happiness.
    Enjoy!
    Did you decipher the last thing Dyan says? Enlighten me!

    Jim Burrows gets personal (not the same interview you’ll hear on other podcasts!)

    Jim Burrows gets personal (not the same interview you’ll hear on other podcasts!)

    Friends, I'm on a mission to show you the real person behind your favorite sitcoms (Cheers, Friends, Frasier, Will and Grace, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda, The Bob Newhart Show, Third Rock from the Sun, the list goes on...).
    I think I succeeded! This is NOT the same interview you'll hear on other podcasts. You'll hear the backstory and inside scoop in today's intro. Then you get to know the man behind the icon.

God with us ,

Good stuff

I really dig what Kara is doing. So many times interviewers don’t dig deep and ask questions that are typical. Kara let’s the guest put their hair down and breaks down the celebrity shell and let’s them be human. Keep pushing Kara.

Tim Gunn - so in-depth!

I was amazed at what Tim revealed and could have listened to this go on even longer! I’m laughing how Tim was sort of dissing Heidi but now he’s doing Making the Cut with her. Wonder how she feels about what he said about her in 2017? Never heard in interview where someone revealed what he thought about people he worked with when he was still working with them. He needed to vent and didn’t care!

maddie@podcastingyou ,

Amazing podcast!

Kara is a truly special host—each of her conversations with guests is honest and open and leads to insights that stick with you.
