Someone’s “favorites” can tell you a lot about them. On The Carlos Watson Show, we often ask guests about their favorite book, movie or place to visit. And if you’re already missing your daily dose of the show as we gear up for season three, we’ve asked the OZY staff to curate a list of some of their favorite episodes just for you! Enjoy some of our favorites and tell us about yours.
I think Dulcé Sloan is one of the funniest women out there. I loved her behind-the-scenes stories from The Daily Show, and I appreciated her insight into the determination and hustle she has needed since age 6 to become the performer she is today. I have now scoured the internet to watch as much of her stand-up as I can find. Laughter is so important these days, and she really makes me laugh!
If you had asked me before watching his appearance on The Carlos Watson Show, I would have bet money on continuing not to like Baker Mayfield. But then the Browns quarterback showed that behind all his ego was a tremendous underdog story, having twice gone from walk-on to starting passer at two separate schools ... feats that (just maybe) justify his cockiness.
My favorite episode was with BBC presenter Katty Kay. While I’ve appreciated her BBC work and in When Katty Met Carlos, it was wonderful to see her on the other side of an interview. I loved the advice she had for young women starting their careers and the relationship between gender dynamics at home and in the workplace. Women, don’t underestimate your ability!
While we talk about favorites, we have to mention the shoe Carlos can’t stop talking about: Cariumas. These wildly comfy and fashionable kicks are the perfect shoe for any occasion. And now, viewers get a special $15 off when you use code CARLOS. See for yourself why these are his favorite — get your own pair today!
I can't begin to tell you how much I loved Jo Koy’s appearance. There really aren't enough words. It's rare to see someone of my Filipino ethnicity represented in mainstream America. It was with pure delight and so much pride I got to hear about his background, which feels so similar to mine: his humour, his story. Jo Koy brought it home!
We’re spoiled with choice! I find the whole series to be the pinnacle of a “mini master class.” This was particularly true in hearing from brilliant investor Afsaneh Beschloss on how she broke glass ceilings in the world of finance, or from Jalen Rose on his storied career and take on racial justice in this country today.
