It’s Friday, the Oscars are this weekend and this show marks our 100th episode of Katie! Those are all pretty good reasons to have fun and celebrate in our book. And we could think of no better mother-daughter duo than Joan and Melissa Rivers to kick off our Friday Happy Hour!

She is not a household name like Gwyneth, Julia, or Halle, nor is she nominated for an Oscar, but she’s just as cool and someone we think you should know. Every month, we team up with Dove to feature a woman who is doing extraordinary things and whose success is inspiring other women for our series “Women Who Should Be Famous.” This month, we’re spotlighting a technology leader named Maya Draisin. There was a time when very few people knew what the Internet was. But Maya understood the Internet, and she knew where it was headed.
“The next 20 years are really going to blow our minds.” -Maya Draisin

Katie first learned about The Gregory Brothers in 2009 when she discovered that she was the accidental star of an episode of “Auto-Tune the News.” Since then, The Gregory Brothers have won multiple Webbys, Streamys and Comedy Central Awards, and their videos have amassed almost half a billion hits on YouTube.
