Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best

Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best

By Kismet Productions

It's me, your friend Busy Philipps! My creative partner Caissie St. Onge & I love making things that we believe people need & will love & we’ve had so many plans. We had plans to do a TV show that would shake up late night! And we think it kinda did! For six months. We adored our genius, scrappy creative team at “Busy Tonight” as much as we loved our audience, so when we broke the news that we’d been canceled, we vowed to get back up & make even bigger plans to invent a whole new way of doing things in the entertainment biz, to reunite our beautiful staff & change the game for everyone! An entertainment Utopia! And we were so close, then...the world changed. Now those plans are, at the very least, on hold. So, we've shifted gears, like everyone has had to, & with our friends, we're just doing our best, taking it slow & talking to fascinating friends about how *they* are doing *their* best. They’ll tell us all about those times in their lives when a setback actually led to the right thing. Maybe it was a job that didn't pan out, but opened the door to an even more perfect one, or maybe it's how they studied for years to do the thing they thought was their calling, only to fall into something else that felt like kismet. The thing is, we want to share those moments because right now EVERYBODY is having one of those moments. Maybe we'll all learn something life-changing or maybe we'll just have a conversation where we break down in tears, then laugh at ourselves for crying. Whatever happens, we can assure you, Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best!

This Is All a Trolley Problem

This week, Busy gives us an update on Birdie’s medical scare and talks about how her own ENT once saved her from a potentially brain-eating infection. She and Caissie make a list of essentials they’d want someone to bring them if they had to stay in a hospital. They discuss the three O’s of the week in Hollywood, the Oscars, the outfits and the Ozempic. Busy has rejoined Raya but isn’t sure it’s what she wants. She does, however, get really frank about what she does want. They discuss the famous thought experiment, The Trolley Problem, and wonder what they would do if the switch was in their hands.

Ship Happens

This week, Caissie confesses a strange addiction, while Busy details her misadventures in Christmas present shipping. They both share their thoughts on the Harry and Meghan docu-series and Busy recounts a time when she jokingly called out a young male star on James Corden’s show for standing her friend Kelly up and lying about it. Both women mourn the loss of one of Hollwood’s hottest bad boys, P-22, which then turns a little deep and a little dark and very existential, because Busy has gotten stoned. Finally, Busy is up in arms about the Vyvanse shortage, and how it is affecting women who have been diagnosed with ADHD, which leads to a conversation about how many prescription drugs are currently in short supply. Is it a conspiracy theory? Also, is it okay for celebrities to not admit they’re using Ozempic to lose weight? Trigger warnings: discussion of abuse, death and disordered eating.

Don’t Worry Darlings

And most of those things happened at the “Don’t Worry Darling” premiere at the Venice Film Festival. They discuss Harry styles, the beautiful mystery that is Chris Pine, #spitgate, whether they’re happy it pulled focus from the Flo v.

Also, the conversation somehow keeps turning to the scientific properties of pee? And Busy explains her unfortunate dog park encounter with a stranger while slightly high.

WAY TO F*CKING GO KANSAS!

This week’s episode is entitled “Way to F*cking Go Kansas!” even though, as of the time the podcast was recorded, Busy & Caissie did not yet know the outcome of the vote on the constitutional amendment to remove protections of abortion rights in the Sunflower state. But now we all do & it is reason to celebrate, even if it’s with a podcast title that doesn’t necessarily reflect the content of the podcast. What IS in the episode? Well, Busy explains how she completely forgot about the month of August, how she got boned in a dress deal, and how being non-separated from your future ex-husband can be a challenge, especially at lunch time. She also reveals what it was like shooting a TV show episode as her kid’s co-star. Caissie shares that she might have bought a bad car & names names on who sold it to her, then belatedly offers an analysis of what she feels would have made “House of Gucci” a better film. Other topics include reheated calamari, a near-disaster birthday party, running for political office and the clitoris.

A product called “Hot Sauce for Your Butthole” is also discussed. Then, Brian Baumgartner, the man responsible for one of TV’s most beloved characters, Dunder Mifflin’s Kevin Malone, joins the podcast to talk about his days on “The Office” as well as the most pivotal moment in his life, plus what might be the secret to his incredible popularity on Cameo and his shared history with Busy as high school speech champions.

Justice Alito Can Suck My Left Tit!

This week Busy & Caissie had already recorded an entirely pleasant podcast when, on Monday evening, Politico published a leaked draft of SCOTUS’ opinion on overturning Roe v. Wade, rendering the jovial nature of the pre-recorded pod meaningless & sour. So, they scrapped it & started again, because JFC, abortion is healthcare! In this episode, they speak with activist & organizer, Melissa Walker, from The States Project, as well as executive director of Women’s Equality Center Paula Ávila-Guillén who discusses the Green Wave movement in Latin America and the progress that's been made in decriminalizing abortion.

They discuss the latest NFT nonsense, Biz fills us in on the rest of her trip to Sweden & Caissie can’t say a word about why she’s in NYC, not even to Busy. (Don’t worry. She’ll tell you if there’s ever anything to tell. But there might not be! Who knows? Not her!)

We've Lost the Thread

This week, Busy & Caissie got the podcast all finished early because Busy was flying to Europe. But then after a couple days in Sweden, Busy felt like that episode wasn’t really them doing their best. So they scrapped it & recorded a new one with Busy calling in from the deserted spa & sauna in her hotel. Was she wearing a robe? Yes. Did she walk by people having a fancy dinner in the lobby restaurant in that robe? Also yes! Plus, they talk about what it means to “lose the thread.” Sakara.com/Busy for 20% off your first order ModernFertility.com/BEST for $20 off your home fertility test Noom.com/BEST to sign up for your trial OkCupid - download the app to find matches who care about the things you care about TrueBill.com/BEST to save, on average, up to $720/year on your bills Zocdoc.com/DOINGHERBEST, sign up for FREE & book an appointment with a top rated doctor

Grace

This week, there’s a lot going on, and Busy and Caissie are getting into all of it! Celebrity apologies and whether they’re sincere!

To What End???

This week has felt like a year and Busy and Caissie are talking through the pain, remembering Louie Anderson and others who left us too soon this week. TW: suicide. The women go extremely deep on how certain media platforms work and why they believe misinformation is allowed to go unchecked. They talk about social media, trolls, and gaslighting and grooming in light of a Medium piece that went viral this week. They discuss the book, “Conflict is Not Abuse” which neither of them has read, but everyone was talking about online. And Busy shares that at which she is doing her best, while Caissie amends a past “best” that she thinks may work better for her than the original way she tried it.

They explore the online dragging of a certain celebrity fella who authored a certain social media post that certainly struck many of you as weird at best, but kinda sad & gross at worst.

This episode was pre-recorded at the end of last week in preparation for Busy’s absence *this* week as she attends “Crying Camp.” Busy and Caissie did their bests to predict how the Emmys would turn out and how Busy would handle it if the retreat tried to make her drink unfiltered water without electrolytes.

Paul F Tompkins and Janie Haddad-Tompkins

As Busy prepares to go off to “crying camp” she and Caissie reflect on how they did their best despite the heaviness this week has carried, but also how much lighter they both are feeling. Perhaps that’s because their guests are two of their dearest friends, the hosts of the Stay F. Homekins podcast, comedian Paul F. Tompkins and actor/writer Janie Haddad-Tompkins! PFT and Janie share some really important personal and career pivots and even though they are two of the funniest people on the planet, things get a little emotional and there is crying, in case you were worried there wouldn’t be. Then, Busy, in a moment of compulsive honesty spills the beans about which company it was that tried to charge her & Caissie to leave their parking lot after a supremely crappy meeting.

Joan Rivers

Busy & Caissie are doing their best, but, not gonna lie, it’s been a rough several days…in our world, in our country and in Busy’s flooded basement. However, this episode’s guest appearance is rare and special. Once in a lifetime, really. This week marks 7 years since Joan Rivers has been gone and, by chance, Caissie recently found a long-lost interview she recorded with Joan, her friend and mentor and colleague, ten years ago, in 2011. In it, she discusses some pretty important pivots, which is prophetic considering this podcast wasn’t even conceived yet. Joan discusses her feud with Johnny Carson, what she really thought of Donald Trump’s Presidential aspirations at that time, who her celebrity BFFS are and who wrote the note she carried around in her bra for years. It’s pretty magical to hear from her again. (Thank you to Melissa Rivers for giving her blessing to publish this recording.)

She also reveals her recently discovered secret that can help you when you’re looking in the mirror & about to make a bad hair decision. Then iconic comedic actress Julia Duffy joins Biz & Cais to talk about how she almost didn’t go to her audition for Newhart! She discusses many career & life pivots, but also opens up about a deeply personal loss that changed her life & the life of her family more than anything else ever could.

This week, Biz & Cais are doing their best. But, things *could* be better. What do they have to worry about? Worms, getting needles stuck in places they’d rather not, finding out what the doctor at the end of that needle has to say, loneliness, neediness and whether or not they’ll ever be able to make a playlist on Spotify. Then, star (and writer) of Rutherford Falls on Peacock, comedian Jana Schmieding, comes thru to discuss the pivot that led her to starring in a show when she wasn’t sure she ever would. Plus, she shares what it is like to be a Native American performer being part of the representation in entertainment that has been much too long in coming.

Meredith Salenger

It’s the one year anniversary of “Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best” and Busy and Caissie are celebrating by…having some sound issues! Whatever, it’s fine. See the name of the podcast. Busy isn’t really sure what she’s doing her best at, but she knows what isn’t going so great for her right now. She does successfully guess what happened to Caissie that may have scarred her son for life, though. Then, actor Meredith Salenger stops by to talk about the new podcast she co-hosts with her husband, Patton Oswalt, plus she shares a whole bunch of pivots that she’s taken since her earliest days on camera, right up until unexpectedly becoming a wife and a mother at the same time just four years ago. Finally, Busy needs to get Gina back across the country, and she’s not sure she can get people on board with her plan.

Stacy London

This week, Busy and Caissie continue to break every podcast rule by doing another audio unboxing where nobody can see what is being unboxed and just have to take their word for how cool everything is! Caissie has a vision for yet another invention that she thinks could be a life-changer for her, but Busy worries that her inventions that never come to fruition might be standing in the way of Caissie’s true calling. Busy is doing her best at being her best self. And they go over lots of other important stuff, including but not limited to, things you can do to spruce up your face or vagina, glitches in the Matrix and how great Suddenly Salad was as an after-school snack. THEN, fashion goddess Stacy London, formerly of TLC’s iconic series “What Not to Wear” joins them to discuss her pivot from helping people change their clothes to CEO of new company that is working to help anyone experiencing the “change of life”!
