In a short statement posted to their Instagram account, CEO Ryan Tillotson wrote, "This week, the Straw Hut Media family lost someone irreplaceable. More than a beloved host, Anne was my friend, collaborator, and a d--- good actress. Anne added life to every room she entered with her tremendous energy and welcoming presence."

"I will remember her most for her big heart, her commitment to the people she loved, and the fearless way she fought for what she believed in," he went on. "Better Together wasn’t just a podcast, it was a belief system. She believed the best way to grow and improve yourself was to talk openly and share stories. We’re committed to continuing her legacy in that way."

"It’s surreal to think I’ll no longer be seeing her every week," he continued. "Los Angeles is a quieter and sadder place without her; I can feel it. My heart hurts. I love you, Anne. Please send all your love and support to her two boys, Atlas and Homer, and the rest of her chosen family."
