EP 192: Janet Varney: "Am I a surgeon saving lives? No way."

Janet Varney is a boss.

She's an actress on hit TV shows like You're The Worst, The Legend of Korra, and Stan Against Evil.

She's the host of the awesome podcast, The JV Club where she talks to friends and other actors about how their childhoods shaped their adulthoods.

She's co-founder of the SF Sketchfest sketch comedy festival, now in its 20th year.

Plus all the projects she's developing that we didn't even get to.
