Happier in Hollywood is the podcast about how to be happier, healthier, saner, more creative, more successful, and more productive in a back-biting, superficial, chaotic, unpredictable, and fundamentally insane world. Hosted by veteran television writers/producers/showrunners Liz Craft and Sarah Fain, who've been friends since high school and writing partners for 17 years, Happier in Hollywood lives at the intersection of friendship and work. Whether you live in Hollywood, Dollywood, or somewhere in between, Liz and Sarah demystify Tinseltown by making career and personal struggles universal. Guided by blind optimism and a Midwestern work ethic, Liz and Sarah have survived and thrived in Hollywood’s male-dominated entertainment industry.

They also share listener opinions on whether or not Sarah should dye her hair, and Liz defends her love of the Kardashians. This week's Hollywood Hack: watch the TV...
