w/ film & TV editor Phillip Harrison (13 Reasons Why, Mr. Robot, Glee)
Dennis visits the Silver Lake apartment of television editor Phillip Harrison who recently wrapped Season 2 of the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why and whose previous shows include Glee, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Mr. Robot. Phillip talks about what it's like to work day after day on a show like 13 Reasons Why, where the subject matter is very intense and emotional. He also breaks down the step-by-step process of editing a television show, how he was able to break through and move from editing indie projects to major network TV shows and why he uses a special saddle chair and occasionally a mirror in his editing bay. He recalls the thrill of getting nominated for an ACE Eddie award for Mr. Robot for an episode that called on him to cut a faux 90's sitcom credit sequence. Phillip also reveals the private ritual he does before showing a producer or director a new cut. He also talks about becoming a vegetarian, keeping in touch with people who might hire you, his surprise editing "audition" for Glee, working with Charles Busch on the film Die Mommy Die and being an assistant editor on American Psycho. Other topics include: his childhood obsession with Star Wars, that time he got fired, how big brothers have the best porn, the documentary he's currently making about gay historian Jonathan Ned Katz and that time he had a run in with the police.

w/ Cashflow for Creatives Kristine Oller & the Queer Eye cast and creator
This episode of Dennis Anyone is divided into two parts. In the first half, Dennis visits the Glendale apartment of professional change strategist and past podcast guest Kristine Oller to get the scoop on her new Cashflow for Creatives program, which Dennis is a part of. For the past 5 months, Dennis has gone to Kristine every two weeks to get coaching for his new businesses Lifecast and the game You Don't Know My Life. Kristine has turned these sessions into a podcast where she uses the real life examples of Dennis and three other creative entrepreneurs to show how her tips and philosophies work in the real world. Dennis got so much out the process and he hopes listeners will, too.
Part 2 of the podcast is an excerpt from the FYSEE event showcasing Netflix's revival of Queer Eye. All five of the Fab Five--Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown and Tan France--were on hand along with the show's Executive Producer David Collins and the make-better subject of the episode they screened A.J. from Atlanta. "I started crying about a minute into the episode and didn't stop until the event was over," says Dennis. "This is the show the world needs right now."
