Sarah Jessica Parker on her HBO shows Divorce and Sex and the City

Sarah Jessica Parker began her career on Broadway, then quickly moved on to acting in classic films throughout the 80's and 90's like Footloose and LA Story. She's probably best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw on HBO's Sex And The City, which ended in 2004. Her latest role is also for HBO - a comedic drama called Divorce.

Sarah Jessica tells Jesse about the hardest part about acting in Sex And The City, how she finds distance between herself and the characters she plays on screen, and the glory of Thomas Haden Church's mustache.

Chris Gethard on mental health and the importance of failure

Chris Gethard hosted the The Chris Gethard Show for 6 years. It aired first on New York City public access, then later on the Fusion network. You might've also seen him on Broad City or Don't Think Twice, the Mike Birbiglia movie that came out in 2016.

Chris is also a standup. His HBO special produced with Judd Apatow is called Career Suicide. It's kind of a one-man show where he covers difficult issues like alcoholism, depression, and death.

Chris tells Jesse why he's looking forward to taking a break from talking about mental health issues.

Check out Career Suicide here.

This interview originally aired in 2017.
