Imagine all your responsibilities are raw eggs. Ready? Catch.

Work. Family. Friends. Groceries. Exercise. Fun. A sink full of dishes and volunteer work and doctor's appointments and emails from your boss and...

Oops. You dropped all the eggs, didn't you? Stinky.

Poynter's Kristen Hare joins the Life of the Party podcast this week to dispel the idea that we can do everything while keeping the areas of our lives sorted into neat little pockets. Instead, she says, we need to strive for work-life chemistry. We've got the formula.

We also chat about the Renaissance Festival, dresses with sleeves, Weight Watchers, DJ Tanner and more. Plus, we tell you what Barbra Streisand has to say about Michael Jackson — oof — and explain what, exactly, Apple is doing with your television.
