This week I talk to the multi-talented and inspiring Jenna Ushkowitz. You may know Jenna from her work on Broadway or as Tina on Glee or from one of her podcasts. Last year, I had the pleasure of being on an episode of her Infinite Positivities podcast and her new podcast, Epic Fail, asks actors to share what they believe to be some of their biggest failures and what they learned from those experiences. During today’s show, Jenna talks about being committed to the career she started at age three, what it felt like to be involved in a project (Glee) that changed her life and the lives of others, the importance of embracing vulnerability, and her new film Hello Again.

[23:56] Jenna’s latest project is an Epic Fail.
[32:04] What it’s like to be in the tabloids.
[34:49] “Hello Again” is a movie about human connection.
[43:02] What ‘bring your whole self to work’ means to Jenna.
Something like Glee was the most I could hope for. It set my career on fire and it also set my soul on fire. @jennaushkowitzClick to tweet
