    Jason Ritter (Parenthood, Gravity Falls, Joan of Arcadia) and I have a beautifully honest (and fun!) conversation in this classic episode from 2019.
    Fun Fact: I wanted Jason to be a guest on Really Famous since the day I started it. You'll find out why.
    And...I was right! I knew I'd like getting to know him better. I predict you will, too.
    You'll hear us talk about:
    Parenthood - why he loved it, which scenes made him cry (as a viewer!) People, perfection and the real deal The downside of potential Growing up with a very famous dad (actor Jason Ritter) What happened after his dad died Embarrassment and the Golden Rule Why he stopped drinking AA ADHD Therapy Fame (then vs. now) Our favorite TV shows The Bachelor The Carbonaro Effect Game of Thrones A few of his heroes who were guests on Really Famous: Joe Mantegna Michael Ian Black Michael Carbonaro #

    Marilu Henner.

    Marilu Henner.

    Marilu Henner (Taxi, Evening Shade, Grease, Chicago) and I talk a mile a minute about EVERYTHING, from her incredible memory (it's called HSAM, or highly superior autobiographical memory) to party games to family to dating John Travolta and a few Taxi co-stars.
    Such fun!
    We crossed paths in New York City for just a few hours, so we went for it! On a Saturday night in late 2019, we got together and knew that our willingness to do this on the fly, between flights to and from Los Angeles, was a sign we'd have a really cool conversation. And we did.
    Enjoy!

    Peter Scolari

    Peter Scolari

    Emmy-winning actor Peter Scolari, who won an Emmy for HBO's Girls, died on Friday morning. This is my very deep talk with Peter, which we had in October 2017. I hope you enjoy it. I didn't know him well, but in the hour or two I spent with him I could feel that he was a warm, emotional, caring person. I think you'll feel the same. Peter and I talk about everything from Bosom Buddies to Newhart and Madoff. He opens up about drugs and alcohol, depression and learning he has bipolar disorder. He gets deeply analytical about life, friends and acting. He also talks Tom Hanks, Bob Newhart and Six Degrees of Separation.

JHFTL ,

Enough of Debi M

One interview with Debi Mazar was highly entertaining. The second made me stop listening and hit delete, for the first time ever on this podcast, which I typically enjoy. Generally, it’s only as good as the guest.

Bunco Bea ,

You had me at Louie Anderson 😊

Nice flow to your podcast interviews. Easy going and comfortable. Good job!

megan@podcastingyou ,

Incredible Content!

Kara does such a good job covering a variety of topics. The guests offer valuable insight as well. I would recommend this podcast to anyone looking to be inspired and informed!
