About your host...

Rachel Abrahams moved to LA with dreams of being a development exec, but with little knowledge of how to get there. She landed a job in the mailroom of an agency after reaching out cold to a fellow Northwestern alum, who graciously helped get her foot in the door. After assisting two agents, she moved on to become a development assistant at a network. She soon realized she'd rather try to make you laugh than have job security--and traded her headset and (sometimes) free lunches to write comedy and perform stand-up.

Rachel started this podcast as a means to help future assistants learn the ropes of the opaque business, help current assistants better plan their goals, and allow everyone to blow off a little steam by laughing at the ridiculousness of it all.
