Replay: Sleep On It with Mary Holland
Hi friends! We are off this week and will be replaying some of our favorite Forever35 episodes. Please enjoy our chat with Mary Holland from February, 2018! And be sure to watch Mary's new movie, Happiest Season, out today on Hulu. This week Doree and Kate are joined by the very funny actor and writer Mary Holland, who can be seen on shows like Veep and Blunt Talk, and performing with her all-women improv group Wild Horses. She talks to Kate and Doree about how sleep is her own personal form of self-care, the healing power of Sex and the City, the satisfaction of a good, long, cry, and being mistaken for Bill Hader.  Doree and Kate also go deep on sleep, breaking down the steps they take to wind down before bedtime. Plus they do another high/low product review, which includes one very expensive Tom Ford lipstick (color: Devore) and some not-so-expensive things too.

Phoebe & Stephanie Beatriz Get Real About Family
It's the holidays, y'all, so that means eating lots of carbs, hopefully a niece pressie aka present or two, and of course, family. All families are unique with their own set of quirks, flaws, magic, and stress. Therefore, it only makes sense that during this holiday season, Phoebe talks about the family of it all. And she's thrilled to be joined in the studio with star of "Brooklyn Nine Nine," and the upcoming film "In The Heights" Stephanie Beatriz. She is so open, vulnerable, and funny. It's a wonderful and powerful conservation. Plus, as always, we answer some audience questions. Enjoy, you gois!!!

It is - SURPRISE! - an interview-advice hybrid show hosted by a black person (ahem, me: Pheebs!) who has never seen an episode of FRASIER despite having a white boyfriend. #WeAllContainMultitudes. Moving on. Since I’m known amongst friends to dole out solicited (and unsolicited) life advice, I wanna spend each week - with a celeb guest - helping y’all handle your probs. #OliviaPope #MoreLikeOliviaDope #MomJoke. ANYWAY, the world is a continuous dumpster fire and the goal of this poddie is to make you laugh, think, and feel hopeful for our future.
