It’s the final episode this season of Show Your Work and we asked listeners last time to set the lineup – thank you for participating! And thank you for this agenda, as it hits on so many of the work themes that we explore on this podcast even though the people we’re discussing may not be immediately connected.  


So here’s the agenda:

We start with Aidy Bryant, Shrill, and Lindy West, pegging to this Hollywood Reporter roundtable featuring Aidy during Emmy campaign season because, yes, she could be a contender. What are the questions she gets that others don’t? And what does it say about the industry that she has a seat at the table but it wouldn’t have happened if she didn’t take the story into her own hands?  

From there, it’s Chrissy Teigen and your questions about what her next move should be now that she’s been called out for all her f-ckups?  

Speaking of f-ckups, how about the British royal brand? Where is the strategy? What should be the strategy? And how did we manage to fit in Blair Waldorf, Serena Van Der Woodsen, and Gossip Girl in a discussion about the British royal family?  


And finally…

Somehow we also linked Bennifer, Olivia Rodrigo, and TikTok.  

Because of your great questions and suggestions!

Thank you so much for your support this season and for caring so much about the work behind the celebrity. We’re taking a break for the summer but we’ll be doing our homework and we hope you will too. Catch up on past episodes here, and subscribe where you get your podcasts!
