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.

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).

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).
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.
