Home Edit Founders Add Podcast to Their Growing Brand | Fun

They may have been tasked with organizing the garage of Chris Pratt and Katharine Schwarzenegger or the talk show kitchen of Drew Barrymore, but professional organizers Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, founders of The Home Edit, are fast becoming talents in their own right.

The chatty, optimistic, rainbow-loving duo who already star in the Netflix reality series ‘Get Organized with The Home Edit’, have written books about their approach and sell their own line of products, are now the hosts of a new weekly podcast’ Best Friend Energy,” proving that their personalities made them, well, personalities.

Shearer, however, is quick to dismiss this notion and says relatable is a better description.

“I’d rather be like a familiar face,” she said. “You have to remember that we still use the staff entrance in most people’s homes. For example, we’re still organizing under a sink in a celebrity’s home. So it’s really easy for us to say, ‘Oh, no, definitely not we are celebrities because there is a very clear distinction.’”

In “Best Friend Energy,” Shearer and Teplin will share the latest happenings in their lives and business, recall funny misadventures, chat with guests, and even dig into other friendships, including Queen Elizabeth II and her beloved corgi or Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg.

Their chats come easily because Teplin says that’s really how they are together: self-deprecating, never at a loss for words, and often going off on tangents.

“We haven’t practiced for this before, but we’ve been practicing for seven years, since the day we met,” Teplin said. “That’s just who we are as people. I don’t think there’s necessarily any practice needed because that’s just us.

The podcast comes as the pair prepare to close a whirlwind chapter in their personal and professional lives.

Earlier this year, The Home Edit was purchased by Reese Witherspoon’s media and entertainment company Hello Sunshine. (Witherspoon and Molly Sims co-executive produce their Netflix show, and Hello Sunshine produces their podcast with Sony Music Podcasts.) Shearer was also diagnosed with breast cancer and documented her chemo and radiation experience on social media. .

“Having cancer doesn’t make me feel that lucky, but all the things I have in my life literally make me the luckiest person. I have the best treatment facility at Vanderbilt Hospital. I have the best business partner, the best company to support me and my family, my husband, my children. I mean, every single person in my life has shown up in such incredible ways and helped in such incredible ways. It’s the honor of my life to be able to share my story… and help people through this.”

Shearer is counting down his remaining days of radiation and is optimistic about what that means.

“I hope to be cancer-free by Thanksgiving, the holiday weekend, which is very exciting,” Shearer said. “I’m so excited to be in November. Radiation is five days a week, which a lot of people don’t know about. It’s incredibly exhausting and exhausting, but I’m balancing that with excitement like, ‘Oh my god, I’ve got almost finished.'”
