Name: Chelsea White & Erin Leafe
What is your current project? Ghosted Stories podcast
What’s your next episode?
This week on Ghosted Stories, Chelsea and Erin chat with comedian, actor and host Claire Burns about getting ghosted by a guy who acted like they were in a 3 yr relationship after a few dates. Plus, we’re celebrating Halloween with real ghost stories (as in dead people haunting you)!
What’s next for you?
We’re both going to continue to host and produce episodes of Ghosted Stories which are released every Thursday at 10am and want to continue to produce quarterly live shows as well!
Chelsea is a TV writer and producer who is currently the co-creator, Executive Producer and host of a forthcoming Bravo web series and the Co-Executive Producer of a forthcoming VH1 comedy series and always working on other personal projects like the weekly Facebook live talk show she just wrapped What a Delight! with Chelsea White.
Erin is working on a short film I wrote and is starring former Ghosted Stories guest- Jesse Jolles.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
ERIN: I just saw CATS! I’ll tell you what, those kitties can sing!
CHELSEA: I’m about to see CATS in a couple of weeks!! And probably the last comedy/variety show I saw was Bitchcraft at Sid’s Gold Room. It’s hosted and produced by the amazing Selena Coppock and Lauren Maul who put on a super entertaining and unique show.
Any advice for your peers?
ERIN: If you are contemplating doing something creative, just do it. You will never be 100% ready, and nowadays there are ways to get started cheap- so just get started. No one is going to tap you on the shoulder and say “NOW- now is the perfect time to follow your dreams” So might as well get started.
CHELSEA: Completely agree- I used to be paralyzed while trying to start a new project because it needed to be “perfect” before I pulled the trigger. But the truth is you have to just put SOMETHING out there and then evaluate it. I always tell myself, just MAKE something- put out a draft, put something on tape. Even if you don’t make it public, at least it’s a materialization of the thing you have in your brain that you can then tweak, revise, etc. AND- it’s great to have goals in mind and be strategic with your creative projects to some extent if part of your goal is ultimately to make that form of creativity your career, but once I got into the frame of mind of “I am doing this for me and if other people like it COOL.” I was SO much happier.

Erin is a former horse girl now adult woman living in New York City. She spent many years as a bartender in some of the bro-iest, whiskey soaked bars in Manhattan. After those years of character study she decided to move on to the glamorous world of Temping. It was everything she dreamed of and it landed her on the ground level of a dysfunctional start up. Which got her closer to many whiskey soaked bars, and ultimately lead her to proclaim “Screw it, I’m going to go write.” She is the creator of the web series “Girl Talk” and a graduate of Columbia University’s Program in TV Writing. She spends her free time trying to figure out what exactly Chia Seeds are supposed to do for her and trying to convince her boyfriend to let her get a dog (who she would love very much, and probably name Peanut).
