Episode 70: Revisting Mary-Louise Parker on Men and Motherhood


We’re republishing one of our favorite interviews, with actress and writer Mary-Louise Parker. If you missed it the first time, I hope you’ll take a listen now. As many of you know, Mary-Louise is the Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe award-winning actress and writer of the exceptional memoir-in-letters, Dear Mr. You. It was such a pleasure to have such an open and honest conversation with someone I admire so much. Dear Mr. You was a revelation for me. I cried so many times while reading it – not because I was upset – more because Mary-Louise hit on truths that I hadn’t had words for before. I cannot recommend this book enough.

Check out The New York Times review Mary-Louise Parker’s ‘Dear Mr. You’ by one of our other favorite guests, Kate Bolick.

I’ll be back next week, September 13th, with literary legend Ann Patchett.
