welcome to TBAS

The Best Advice Show is your daily reminder that there are weird, delightful and effective ways to survive and thrive in this world. In every (very short) episode of the show, a different contributor offers their own personal take on what they do to make their life better, healthier, saner and more livable and it’s likely gonna be something you can try today, if you want!

Contributors include poet Hanif Abdurraqib, Yung Pueblo, Tune-Yards, Ann Friedman,  adrienne maree brown,  Mark Bittman, my mom, my wife, my niece and YOU (call Zak with your advice at 844-935-BEST).

Zak Rosen is the host and creator of TBAS. He also made/makes Pregnant Pause, How To Survive the End of the World and Freedom Dreams. He facilitates workshops and consults with museums, high schools, universities, and community organizations on various story-based projects. He's also a counselor at Radio Campfire, a live listening event series and a coach at the Detroit Writing Room.
