Episode 19: Office Candy Dish - Call Your Girlfriend On the podcast, Amina and I discuss office candy-dish politics, our vocal insecurities, and the shine theory of Kanye & Taylor. Plus, the grossest period joke of all time.
"For what? For what? For what?" This is from a woman who claims she once got it on with Paul Newman and James Dean at the same time, so you should probably listen to her.
"is it @annfriedman newsletter time? i've asked myself this thrice this week." -Kathleen. It's time!
"It's not officially Friday til the @annfriedman Weekly hits my inbox." -Katie Mitchell. Gonna keep this in mind next time I'm tempted to sleep in on a Friday.
"Fridays are for seeing who else subscribes to @annfriedman's newsletter by the links they tweet." -Hilary Keller. It's basically a secret society that will have anybody as a member.
"The internet looks cuter on Saturday mornings because @annfriedman makes me click on wonderful little links." -Ju Cruz. This is the twee-est endorsement. I love it.
"Tough to explain, easy (and enjoyable) to read. You won't be sorry." -David Carr, back in June. I was beyond flattered to receive this testimonial from someone so well-respected within journalism, especially because he was not known for dispensing empty praise. I didn't work with the man. I don't think I ever met him. I don't have a personal anecdote to tell you about that one time he pep-talked me or gave me great advice or put me in my place. I simply really, really admired his work from afar and am very sad he's no longer with us.
Goddamnit, goddamnit. This newsletter is feeling itself.
Forward it. Yes, sir.
