How to Not Give a Shit With Author Samantha Irby
This week we chatted with Samantha Irby, comedian, writer, the mastermind behind the blog "
Bitches Gotta Eat
" and the author of the new collection of essays
We Are Never Meeting in Real Life
, as well as the collection
. We crowned her as the voice of her generation, talked marriage and the Bachelorette, and found out why she dedicated her book to Klonopin.
We covered all kinds of topics (many of them NSFW), including but not limited to:
How a panic attack feels like you're dying
Why The Bachelorette is the best show ever
Internet dating (and the OKCupid handle we kind of want to steal)
Her recent marriage to someone whose breakfast bowl "looks like a forest"
The pros and cons (mostly cons) of a strap-on
What it's like to live with kids when you're not a parent
And so much more.
