Employee of the Month is a talk show hosted by Catie Lazarus. She interviews phenomenal folks about their careers, be it comedian Jon Stewart or activist Gloria Steinem or Congressman Barney Frank or the Guinness Book of World Record Holder for Most Guinness Book of World Records. These candid conversations may inspire you to finish your novel or start one or simply self medicate. Either way, she hopes you have as much fun listening as she and her guests do talking. Her guests also receive the coveted Employee of the Month Award, which falls somewhere between a Nobel Peace Prize and free cup of coffee. The podcast is released weekly and you can attend live tapings monthly in New York at Joe's Pub. To get involved, go to www.employeeofthemonthshow.com or @catielazarus on Twitter.
