The Carlötta Beautox Chronicles: Podcast Review

audrey hepburn

Fame. Fortune. Golden Oscar statues that represent your acting craft. These are some of the things that entertainers strive for in Hollywood, and today, we’re bringing you the magic of The Carlötta Beautox Chronicles podcast. This comedy-fiction work of art tells the story of Carlötta Beautox, an actress who dreams of making it big in Los Angeles. And like most of the talented folks in the City of Angels, Carlötta’s quest is met with loads of obstacles. It’s relatable for actors, singers, and dancers alike, but it also sheds a spotlight on the pros and cons of stardom.

The Hosts: Since this is a fictional podcast, there isn’t really a “host” in the traditional sense. Rather, we’ll give credit to three major players here: Ann Sloan, Samantha Gordon, and Trevor Lissauer. Ann is the writer, director, and producer of this podcast, and she’s worked for many years in the entertainment business. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California, and loves to write screenplays during her spare time. Samantha plays the titular role of Carlötta. The actress, who can also sing and dance, trained in New York, and has appeared in productions like General Hospital, This is 25, and Saved by Daylight. Trevor is a composer and actor who has appeared on Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, Running the Halls, and La La Land. 

The Guests: The Carlötta Beautox Chronicles has featured several actors like David Allen, Sarah Agor, Vivia Armstrong, and Justin Mayer.

Why You Have to Listen: You don’t need to be in the entertainment business to listen to this podcast, because it’s got a hilarious charm that is perfect for anyone. Whether you’re an influencer who wants to make it big on social media, or you’re a fan of classic movies and TV shows, The Carlötta Beautox Chronicles offers a unique perspective on the journey of an actress. But more importantly, it’s also relevant for our time, as some of the more recent episodes call out “cancel culture” and TMZ tabloids. Oh, and did we mention that The Bello Collective named this podcast as one of the “100 Outstanding Podcasts of 2019?”

About the author


Copywriter, content writer, photographer, and actress who enjoys being lazy through the magic of video games, Netflix, and hiking, though the latter of which requires a buried willpower.


Talin went to school for mathematics, but decided to switch to an acting career halfway through. Against her parents wishes, she then moved to California to pursue this pipe dream, and is still, as some would say, "climbing through the trenches." She's also self-taught in photography, writing, and graphic design, since she believes that school is a financial sinkhole that society loves to promote.

Work History

Talin is lazy and doesn't feel like bragging about each and every employment opportunity that came her way. Rather, she'll leave you with the following, "I've written so much for companies that I'm begrudgingly sprinting toward full-blown arthritis."
