Karen Finerman is the CEO of a hedge fund in New York City, and a regular panelist on CNBC’s Fast Money. Check out her book, Finerman’s Rules: Secrets I’d Only Tell My Daughters About Business and Life. Fun fact: besides juggling a career, two jobs and four children, Karen can actually juggle objects.


Karen, looking radiant

Susie Loeffler is a singer, teacher and great friend. Her story is the first to be recorded LIVE at the prestigious Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis, MN (at the bar on Katharine’s phone).


Katharine, Susie and Dan 

Dave T. Koenig is an actor/writer/director and overall great guy. His face has even been on a plane. Yes, a plane (for a commercial, but still).

daveThe plane! The plane!

Zach Mattheus is a brilliant art director and Jess Mattheus is a wonderful caterer. Katharine wants to hang out at their house forever. Here they are in their kitchen during the recording, looking so adorable.

Emmy Bean is a performer based in Chicago. Her friend Will Carlough is an incredible filmmaker. Together they are absolutely hilarious.

Josh Cohen is the co-creator of the Josh and Tamra show, and teaches puppetry master classes all over the country. He also has racy pictures of 20 year old Katharine somewhere due to a prank gone horribly wrong. But that’s another story.

Liz Davenport is an awesome Brooklynite who would probably still risk her life for a child, but maybe with assistance in the future.

Jesse Myerson is an activist, writer and total badass. Here he is doing a field piece for Citizen Radio:
