Radio Interview: This Time in the Hot Seat

International Women’s Day is coming, and I’ll be interviewed on radio KFAI for the occasion.

The Subject: Women, comedy, and women in comedy.

The Women: writer/comedian Molly Knefel, writer/comedian Emily Schorr Lesnick, comedian/HUGE founder Jill Bernard, and writer/comedian me.

In addition to talking about myself and my views on lady issues, I’ll read two pieces of short fiction: “Dear Mother,” and “On the Subject of My Arrest: An Address to my Fellow Residents of Surrency, GA, July the 25th, 1866.”

UPDATE:  Listen to the interview at KFAI by clicking Listen Now or MP3 Stream next to “Finding the Female Funny.” Molly first, then Emily, and my segment starts at 35:19.
