||Clean5. Kathryn Gallagher (Broadway & TV actress, Singer/Songwriter, My Little)||While Kathryn Gallagher is a successful broadway actress (Spring Awakening), future TV star (You on Lifetime), and singer/songwriter, perhaps her most important role has been being my "little" in Theta, the sorority that we both dropped out of in college. This is truly a special episode that reminds me of why I immediately fell in love with Kathryn 5 years ago. We talk body positivity, the intersection of creativity & hard work, and how to filter out negativity. We talk "craft" and "craft services", and even diagnose Kathryn with asthma. Seriously, if you want to be entertained and inspired, this episode is for you. Kathryn also makes a big announcement- I don't want to spoil it, but it rhymes with Shmalannis and I'm going to give it all my money and be front & center on opening night.

||Clean4. Brian Jones (Bassist, Producer, Artist, Matt Lauer’s Last Victim)||If Gallup were to measure Brian Jones’s approval rating, it would be record-breaking. Everybody loves Brian because he is hardworking, talented, funny, and politer than 99% of 24-year-old guys you will meet. He plays bass for Gwen Stefani and Muna, produces for many artists (including my bff Ren Farren), and makes up one half of the band Human Natural. In this episode, we rant about the virtues of Kimbra for possibly a little too long, I grill Brian to recall the “best memory of his entire life”, and we dig into Brian’s Today Show interaction with Matt Lauer just days before we all learned about Matt’s sex offender desk button. Brian has so much to say about creativity, work, and how the two intersect, and he is certifiably not-braindead. Hope you enjoy!

||Clean3. Taylor Griffin, Press Secretary for Nancy Pelosi & Former High School A Capella Co-President||Taylor has accomplished many great things in lifetime, from being one of three co-presidents of our high school a capella group (no small feat in a class with 40 girls), to being the first black woman and one of the youngest staffers to hold the position of Press Secretary for a Democratic House leader by the age of 25. She is known for her energy and laughter, her smarts, her good looks, and being featured in Time magazine while protesting in Ferguson, MO. Turns out she is also the enemy of a few right-wing extremist groups (more on that in this episode). In this conversation, Taylor describes what her job is like, the responsibilities of being a spokesperson for one of the most powerful people in the country, what drives her to do the work, and what brand of chocolate Nancy gave her for Christmas.||1/31/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Really liked her first guest
She sounds like a really cool guest. I'd love to be friends with her. Annie flows effortlessly from self-depricating humor and an innocent yearning for emotional purity. Good stuff. Ps. Annie did not write this.
