Figuring It Out

Apr 29, 2020

Tara Schuster is an author, playwright, and accomplished entertainment executive, currently serving as Vice President of Talent and Development at Comedy Central. She is currently the Executive in Charge of Lights Out with David Spade, was the Executive in Charge of the Emmy® and Peabody Award-winning Key & Peele, the Emmy® Award winning @Midnight, and numerous other shows including Another Period, Detroiters, and Hood Adjacent. 


Tara’s first book, Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies: and Other Rituals to Fix Your Life from Someone Who has Been There,  has been chosen by People Magazine for New Non-Fiction, is a starred review in Publishers Weekly , and has been covered by Forbes, The Hollywood Reporter, Newsweek, and Parade Magazine among others. 


But most of all...Tara is relatable. She’s smart, funny, and real. Whether you’re reading her book, listening to her on this show or another, or talking to her you feel like she just kind of gets you. 


And her self-care tips feel actually doable. No hour long meditations, Wim Hof breathing, or rain dances -- unless that’s your thing...then by all means!


We also talk about: 

  • How she’s coping with missing her book tour
  • GEtting pushed in line at the grocery store
  • How to ask ourselves “what can I learn”?
  • Why it’s so important to not reduce your own feelings
  • And her top tips for taking care of yourself...even when it feels really hard.
