Listen to Samantha Irby HERE.

Samantha Irby amassed a cult following with her Bitches Gotta Eat blog and then she wowed her fans with her hilarious and brutally honest memoir, Meaty, which is in TV development by Jessi Klein, head writer for Inside Amy Schumer, and Broad City co-creator/star Abbi Jacobson. Now, in her second book of essays, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life, Irby continues to share the treasure trove inside her mind. Whether it’s her hilarious application to be a contestant on The Bachelorette, her relationship to $$$ and lipstick, and the life lessons she learned from her 14 years working at an animal hospital, every story will lodge in your brain and keep you wanting more. this conversation was such a thrill, as you will hear we could have gone on all day. I can’t wait to have Sam back in the studio asap.
