This is a new podcast- it launches August 17th. 🤷🏼‍♀️ It has me and my showrunner(and now business partner) from Busy Tonight Caissie St. Onge @instacais and my dear sweet writer/performer from Busy Tonight Shantira Jackson @tira_tira_tira (who is also one of my favorite humans) and it launches August 17th(did i already say that?) Listen. I don’t really know what to write here because things are weird and I feel weird BUT! Am I doing my best? Yes. I am. But the truth is complicated and so is this business and this world and this past year has been messy- actually- I mean the past several years have been really- And at this point, I’ve have been so many damn PIVOTS (personally and professionally) that I’m basically the couch from FRIENDS. So. This podcast. We’re gonna talk to each other, about stuff we’ve been doing and trying to do; and shit that we care about, whether it’s big like social activism or small like HOW MUCH IS BEN AFFLECK GETTING PAID BY DUNKIN?! And ALSO we’re gonna talk to some of our favorite humans (who may or may not be famous) about times in their own lives when they had to PIVOT and it brought them to an even better place. OR maybe a worse place. OR POSSIBLY JUST A DIFFERENT PLACE because who’s to say?! WE DON’T KNOW ALL THINGS!! Anyway. I don’t know about you- but I have a feeling many of us are feeling a collective PIVOT at this very moment. So. I don’t know…let’s just fucking talk about it. 💜🤷🏼‍♀️💜 (thank you @hollywoodreporter for putting it out into the world this is happening- @kirstenchuba was very nice to talk to and I’ll put a swipe up in my stories if you wanna read the article)

In her announcement, Busy wrote that on the podcast they are going to “talk to each other, about stuff we’ve been doing and trying to do; and shit that we care about, whether it’s big like social activism or small like HOW MUCH IS BEN AFFLECK GETTING PAID BY DUNKIN?! And ALSO we’re gonna talk to some of our favorite humans (who may or may not be famous).”

We know that Busy has some great friends and connections inside the entertainment business. We could forget the mini Freaks & Geeks reunion she had with Linda Cardellini on her E! network talk show?

Busy might be a television and film star, known for everything from White Chicks to Dawson’s Creek, but over the past few years, it is her unfiltered Instagram presence and everyday realness that has been her claim to fame. 

Talking casually to fans, followers, and friends is something Philipps does best, which is why podcasting is the perfect avenue for her after her talk show, Busy Tonight, was abruptly canceled last year.

Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best is not Philipps’ first venture into podcasting. She used to co-host We’re No Doctors alongside her friend and fellow actor Steve Agee.
