Maria Bamford keeps blowing my mind this year. I wrote about her recent book here (I called it my favorite non-business business book of the year), and now she’s also appeared on the Working It Out Podcast with Mike Birbiglia.
Both of them are masters of talking about their own life experiences and traumas in a disarming way. I don’t know how else to put it. They make stuff that is hard to talk about laughable and yet still deeply, deeply serious. Just like a poem or a song can make you feel or understand something you couldn’t put words to, these two both can do it with comedy.
This interview focuses on process, and as is true with all the Working It Out episodes, it’s awesome to hear professionals giving each other live feedback. Give it a listen. It’s a great way to start 2021.
