I know, I know. I’ve written about Julie Klausner’s How Was Your Week podcast before. And I know I talk about her all the time. Well, whatever. She’s great, her book’s great, and her podcast’s great.
Last week’s episode is particularly fabulous if you’re into funny ladies and Rookie magazine (and, seriously, if you’re not into either then what are you even doing reading this blog?). Julie interviews the hilarious Jessi Klein and Rookie E.I.C. Tavi Gevinson. Tavi’s interview was particularly great: she and Julie talked about creativity and John Waters. What could be better?
Also of note: Although I loved Jezebel in college and read it way, way too often when I should’ve been studying, I gradually stopped reading it over the past few years. I find it to be focused more on the negative than the positive, but my bigger problem is that the commenters (and some of the writers) consistently criticize film and television they haven’t even seen. The final straw for me was when Observe and Report came out (I know that was forever ago) and they repeatedly took a scene containing what they said was a rape joke out of context to make a point that wouldn’t even have been valid had they seen the entire film. But we can talk about that some other time. The point of this is that Jezebel is doing something I actually really love: The Jezebel 25. 25 talented, groundbreaking women, including our gal Julie Klausner. Jezebel, I much prefer this sort of thing over take downs of movies that aren’t even out yet or mean comments about Taylor Swift! I am probably in the minority.
Anyway, check out the Jezebel 25. Lots of awesome ladies!
