Are You Successful?

Are You Successful?

Listening to this show will not help you make a million dollars or retire early. We don't have 10 easy tricks for how to climb the corporate ladder. Instead, it will probably make you question your career aspirations. Doesn't that sound fun?\u0010\u0010This week, Sam and Rebecca get angsty and talk about what success means to them. Is it money? Fame? Happiness? To do some good in this world? It's a complicated question into which this week's guest, Chris Gethard gives us some insight. Gethard, an actor, comedian, and writer, whom you may recognize from his roles on Broad City and The Office has made a career out of failing. As friends and fellow comedians moved to Los Angeles to find success, Gethard stayed in New York to work on a public access TV show and remain relatively unknown. Decades later, he is finally finding success on his own terms. Gethard starred in this summer's critical darling, Don't Think Twice and has a new show opening off-Broadway this October.\u0010\u0010Gethard has mixed feelings on success. As he puts it, "success oftentimes is a headache that brings pressures with it."
