For the final episode of the season, Emily and I talk again but this time about our favorite lazy geniuses on television. Spoiler: a lot of them are jerks or kind of annoying. What does that mean?! But really they're just people who don't spend a lot of time worrying about what others think, and that can't be bad. Do your favorites make the list?
Thank you for listening to this podcast! I can't wait for season two!
Emily Freeman is the perfect balance of boss lady and soul whisperer. She gets stuff done and has the work to prove it but her goal is to create space for your soul to breathe, and our souls can't breathe if we're drowning in hustle. Listen as Emily and Kendra talk about the difference in dreaming about your ideas and actually making them happen, how they get in their own creative rhythms, and how you can, too.
He didn't own a cell phone until two years ago, he does a mean Cookie Monster impression, and he's the laziest of all geniuses. In this episode, I talk with my husband about our lazy genius marriage and the torrid story of how we met. It's a little scandalous.
Introducing the coolest girl ever with the coolest job ever. Addie Jones is a stylist, decorator, and creative ninja. She's also incredibly kind and generous with her ideas and encouragement. Kendra and Addie chat about her jobs, the craziest thing she's ever hung in an Anthro store, and how to see your house with fresh eyes.
Do you love The Nester? Not as much as this guy. Today I'm talking with Chad Smith who has been a teacher, youth pastor, coach, and dad to three teenage boys. He knows a lot about parenting and grace and people, and I loved talking with him about relationships with our families and our friends. He's a wise dude with a lot of great things to say, so I hope you enjoy listening!
My guest today is the incomparable funny lady, Jamie Golden. You know her from The Popcast, one of the greatest podcasts ever, but she's also a baller baker.
Today, Jamie and I share with you our favorite Lazy Genius baking tips and tricks, including but not limited to how you never have to clean a sheet pan or muffin pan or your refrigerator shelves again, as well as how chafing can help you remember the difference between baking soda and baking powder.
And if you'd like your own copy of The Flavor Bible (which we talk about), get it, girl. Or boy. Some of you might be boys.
My guest today is Mary Carver. Mary is so regular in the best sense of the word. She's a normal person who happens to have a blog and a book, and you'll want to be her friend. Funny, honest, and a real Lazy Genius, Mary and I have a conversation about kids, goals, marriage, and everything in between. Sometimes it's hard to be a person, and Mary gets that. She also makes you feel okay for not liking it all the time. She's fantastic, and I know you'll dig her, too.
Meg is creative, chill, and a mom of five teenagers. In this episode, she candidly and generously shares her experiences in parenting grown people who still live in your house. Her words are kind, honest, and freeing. I can't wait for you to listen to this episode and get encouragement from Meg.

Ever wish you had a television cheat sheet? Everyone keeps talking about this show and that show, and you simply don't have the brain cells to keep up. Today, my friend and pop culture brother Nick Flora is here to help. Nick and I break down the most popular television shows and give you all you need to know, including mic drop lines you can throw into a conversation even if you've never seen the show. It's television Cliffs Notes at their finest, so you're welcome.
Plus, we take a surprising tangent down early 90s Christian culture memory lane, so have fun if you fit that demographic, too.
Stuff We Mention
Welcome to The Lazy Genius Podcast! It's the first episode of the first season, and I am thrilled to share with you my friend Emily Gordon.
Emily is a therapist turned comedy writer who has been through more change than most of us experience in five lifetimes. She is kind, wise, and doesn't mess around with what's true. I adore her honesty and forthrightness about how she sees the world, but she still maintains a beautiful acceptance of people who aren't like her.
If you've ever wondered what it's like to take a big (or little) leap when it comes to changing your life, this conversation with Emily is for you.
