Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Apr 22, 2019

It's Lisa Simpson!

Yes, Emmy-winner Yeardley Smith is the voice of smart, spunky Lisa Simpson on The Simpsons. For the last 30 years. Wow!

Yeardley is also an on-air actor (remember her from City Slickers, Herman's Head, The Legend of Billie Jean and Maximum Overdrive?).

And she co-hosts the true crime podcast Small Town Dicks, now in season 4. Tune in! Subscribe!

You'll hear Yeardley talk about:

  • perfectionism
  • success
  • living up to your potential (or not)
  • not being accepted to college
  • Bill Murray's secret phone number
  • winning an Emmy (and not feeling how you'd expect)
  • on-camera work vs. voice work
  • agents
  • therapy
  • publishing a book
  • internal vs. external success
  • getting hugged in the supermarket
  • true crime
  • her podcast, Small Town Dicks
  • being a French-born actress (sort of)

Join us! Then head to to watch our fun little video.
