…Sarah Negahdari is the front-woman, guitarist, and chief songwriter for Los Angeles indie rock darlings, The Happy Hollows!  Turns out Sarah and Jenny are BOTH “hoes for self-help books,” which makes Jenny feel less alone in this world.  Sarah also shares fun stories about why improv comedy is great for music, why you better be ready when director Spike Jonze asks for you, and how it feels to quit waitressing and land a national Samsung commercial all on the same day.

Recorded at Monk Turner studios in the Artist District of Downtown, Los Angeles on April 19th, 2011. This episode is sponsored by the fine folks at – get their new “Hapa Papa” t-shirt! If you liked what you heard, please comment AND donate by simply clicking the Paypal button at

    I just want to tell you that you did an awesome interview with Ryan this morning! I enjoyed every second and even listened to it again. I look forward to your podcasts to come !

    • Jenny Yang says :

      Oh, Gina! Thank you so much for your encouraging words! I’m so thrilled that you enjoyed the interview!!! I knew Ryan had really loyal and growing fans and I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t be able to bring the kind of experience that people would want (while also listening to my own instincts about what *I* wanted to ask). I’m looking forward to hearing your feedback on other podcast episodes moving forward! It will help me along MY process. Cheers! Jenny Yang
