    Uma Thurman + Elisabeth Moss + Kristin Chenoweth

    Uma Thurman + Elisabeth Moss + Kristin Chenoweth

    Twist! I reached into my archives for this, friends. Back in the day, I interviewed these three iconic women: Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale, Mad Men) and Kristin Chenoweth (Glee, Pushing Daisies). These were VERY DIFFERENT interviews from my podcast talks because (a) back then, I was primarily a writer and a therapist, (b) I was only beginning to develop my interviewing style, (c) they were for written articles, or profiles, for magazines, so the purpose was different, and (d) I didn't have actual podcasting equipment yet; just a tiny microrecorder (which wasn't a match for the loud restaurant where I met Elisabeth Moss, unfortunately).
    Anyway, I think you'll enjoy these. They have a rough, behind-the-scenes quality. And these women, wow. Icons. Layered. Real. Women.

    Tim Daly is back!

    Tim Daly is back!

    When Tim Daly and I sit down at his kitchen table for our 6th Really Famous talk, we get philosophical - and Tim says some things he probably shouldn't (his words, not mine!). Of course we talk Madam Secretary, Wings, how handsome Tim is, his status with co-star and life partner Téa Leoni, etc. But we also get into deep (and shallow) thoughts, about aging, fear, death, intimacy and more.
    You'll feel like you're right there with us, sitting at the table with Tim's dog, Goose, coming and going, weaving from topic to topic and analyzing our individual takes on life.
    Enjoy.

    Alan Cumming

    Alan Cumming

    Alan Cumming has an FAQ page on his website. That's because he's been interviewed so many times and he's done with the same old questions. That's actually perfect for me because I can't stand same old questions.
    But!
    He has done so many things (mastered theater, won a Tony, starred in hit TV series like The Good Wife -- he played Eli Gold -- and Instinct, starred in everything from Doctor Who to Sex and the City and Spy Kids, co-hosted the Tonys, made albums, received 40+ awards for his humanitarianism, got 3 honorary degrees, holy moly, the list goes on!) that I felt overwhelmed. Where was I going to go with this interview?
    Then it hit me.
    Proverbs.
    Listen now and you'll know exactly what I mean.

    Eric Braeden

    Eric Braeden

    The Young and the Restless icon Eric Braeden, aka Victor Newman, returns to Really Famous as we sit down at CBS Studios in Los Angeles, on the set of the daytime drama, to talk about the wildest and scariest times in Eric's life, his recent bout with bladder cancer, trauma and drama, making it in Hollywood, his penchant for fast cars and the shocking things he's done when he was pulled over by the police, his granddaughters, his veracity, and oh so much more. Plus, he compares me to Larry King. So that's fun too.

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.

joysomerville ,

I feel like I’m in therapy 😀

Kara,
I’m so happy I found your podcast. The first one I listened to was with Tim Gunn. Love him!
I feel like I’m therapy while I listen.
Thank you so much!
Joy

Great interviews

This is a “go to” for my interviews with unique perspectives. The subjects are not there to promote something so you get an interesting, almost conversational interview. I’ve enjoyed listening to people I know nothing about.
